Wonder how much trouble WANE TV will have keeping the advertising contract with the local Budweiser distributorship? The Maven is quite sure the suits at AALCO Distributing have been chewing some ass at WANE TV and their corporate home office.
One would think that WANE TV is making a pretty gutsy decision to portray a well-spending advertiser in a rather embarrassing light.
Quite a difference from how WANE TV bent over backwards to protect Piere's Entertainment Complex/Knife-&-Gun-Club during the most recent fatal shooting in their parking lot a few months ago. While every other media outlet in the city named Piere's by name, WANE TV never did, instead their stories indicated the shooting took place in "a parking lot in the 5600 block of St. Joe Road".
If you don't remember, the Maven can direct you to this.......
So, why the change is policy? Either WANE TV is playing favorites, or they are approaching the level of the WOWO news room for ineptitude and stupidity.
