    Default Local TV Station Gets Punked

    One of the local TV stations reported tonight that Cell Phone Numbers would be turned over to telemarketers and to call the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY to add to that listing to prevent unwanted calls. In the scheme of things, I think they got PUNKED! LOL ROTFL!

    So much for truth in broadcasting and checking out sources. Seems they fell for one of the oldest Internet scams around.

    The station? Well, it WASN'T TV 10, but I'll bet they're laughing their hind quarters off..

    And we think GANNET has it bad!

    "Responsible journalism" at its best --- errrrr worst. Another reason why I do not watch channel 10 when I go to Lafayette.

    Looks like GetTheFacts1st got his facts first, but not right! He may have the most appropriate name on the internet.

    Well, just because it aired on KATC does not mean that it did not air on KLFY as well. Although I'd be surprised if both stations fell for it...

    One thing is for sure-KATC-3 has been getting punked by KLFY-10 in the ratings for about 45 years now.

    About those ratings ...


    After years of technial challenges, turnover in the news room and management changes, KATC has achieved the ultimate goal of every TV station everywhere: ratings dominance. According to the February 2008 Nielsen survey, KATC won every newscast against the competition, from Good Morning Acadiana in the 5 to 7 a.m. slot, to the 5 and 6 o'clock news slots and, for the first time, the 10 o'clock news Monday through Sunday.
