I saw a video on one news of Trump picking up a little black girl, it showed him holding her away. The other station showed him picking up the same little girl, kissing her cheek and holding her close. Some are returning to their old ways, you can take away from a video but you can't add.

My problem with hurricane coverage is they knew the storm was going to hit land in Rockport but they placed their main reporters on Day 1 in Corpus Christi. They always place them in the nearest city even if it's scheduled to make land first in a small town. I hate that. Rockport probably doesn't have a Starbucks.

Rockport was where the Reporters were allowed to go the first day (& quite a few local reporters were actually there the night it hit). Which is why lots of people think that Rockport is where the Hurricane made Landfall. It didn't.

It made Landfall first at Port Aransas, which is ON the barrier island, (Rockport is 3-4 miles away and across a small bay & is on the mainland). The eye wall actually made landfall on the barrier island 10 miles north of PA. Port Aransas is FAR better known (to Texans) than Rockport. But since there were no cameras in Port Aransas, it was all about rockport, rockport, rockport the first 12 hours (& nothing about Port A). To me, THIS was the narrative that the clueless national media best demonstrated their "Ridiculous TV Coverage".

By the time crews were allowed into Port Aransas (two days later), the storm (& coverage) moved to the Flooding in Houston (as it should have). Poor Port A got absolutely clobbered and most people in the US still haven't heard of it. (& it is arguably most Texan's "Favorite Beach" & favorite Beach town).

Rockport is the little tourist town where one picks up a T Shirt and a 3 dollar ice cream cone.....when folks are driving back home from Port A.
