Thumpy rants about another TV news "STUNT" & more

by News Fairy

Thumpy has been ranting about American television and has the latest word from Cybergun Watch:

A MAJOR RANT on YET Another TV news "STUNT" that tries to dump on AIRSOFT in the USA!

For some background, it is THE FEBRUARY TV RATINGS SWEEPS MONTH again., when normally mild and unobtrusive TV stations across the Fruited Plains resort to all kinds of stunts and stupidity to help potential ad buyers choose them as the place with the largest number of TV sets turned on, to spend their car/furniture/lawyer advertising money with for the next year.

Here’s the LINK to WXII TV’s story below: http://www.wxii12.com/video/30392281/detail.html

"WXII chIef meterologist Lanie Pope investigated an airsoft combat facility to get some answers."

I’m going to share what I’ve been saying on Facebook and my SCOOP.IT News Site all day…

Since when does a "CHIEF METEOROLOGIST" "investigate" anything for a TV news room? Oh, right…during FEBRUARY SWEEPS, when, as usual some bright bulb comes up with the concept of sending a "mom of boys" to "look into" this "potentially life threatening" "game."

We’ve played this game long enough. Kyle and the gang from Cool Combat…and every one of their players, tried to get an unbiased story out to their community. And, for the most part, it blew through the "agenda" that WXII sent their "news team" out to the field to bring back.

But, give me a frickin’ break. You guys oughta be mad as hell at this and tell the station all about it.

Oh, and for the record since many don’t know it….I USED TO BE A TV REPORTER/Military Beat…Features…News Bureaus/Assignment Editor AND a News Director for a short period of time…like 22 total years, and I’ve yet to see an Airsoft "STORY" that didn’t go into some anti-war/anti-violence/public safety agenda.

That is BIAS, poor journalism and the reason most Americans are leaving 22.5 minutes of TV news a day and making up their own minds on what is "news" on the miracle that is the INTERNET.

Nice work. Tell me when its going to rain again and leave the journalism to the pros, Mom.

Cybergun Watch…they want to expand into airsoft PARKS in America…and how I got snubbed at SHOT Show…


It is all here….VIDEO of the whole thing will one day come to light, soon I hope, as we are finally back into fighting trim, with $200 in medicine to finally kill this cough and cold.

Use any and everything you need for this one…and please throw in a plug for the SCOOP.IT channels…we now have 2 running, one for ALL AIRSOFT NEWS and the second for Sites and Events, with a new working relationship with AIRBANA.

Hope this finds you fat and sassy!   Give the News Fairy a hug for us!

THUMPS….OVER (Thumpy’s 3-D House of Airsoft)
