Nice story in the Metro/Local section today about Fred Baum. Fred was the movie director and host of the Sunday moviefest on WBTI-TV (Now WB64).

When 64 started, the telecine wasn't the norm. Fred bought two REAL movie projectors, which meant two cameras were shooting the wall and, depending on the day, could mean someone might (and did) walk through the movie. Talk about a cameo!

So what can be made of this latest Chris Henry fiasco??? 9 appeared to have a very big scoop when it reported the assault accusation against Henry. It appeared well supported at first - Florence police indeed said there was an active investigation.

However, it quickly became clear that the investigation was fizzling. Holes started popping up in the accuser's story, and his family eventually stopped cooperating completely.

I don't think the Enquirer dealt much with the accusations at all. 5 & 19 appeared to do the "what you heard isn't true" angle. 12 didn't appear to touch it either.

Is there something to be learned here? Was this a rush job on a story that wasn't really there? Or was it good to go with the story and pull back as more details came in? Does Chris Henry have grounds to go after an apology? 9 did make effort to reach Henry - but the reporter was told to go away.

What are people thinking about this? Has Chris Henry simply fallen victim to his own past mistakes?

I felt that it was rather inappropriate and definitely unprofessional of News 5 Anchor Jonathan Hawgood to ask Meteorologist Randi Ricco if she had a MySpace Account. She simply replied, "no comment...we won't go there."

On a different note, what did you think about him anchoring at 11pm for Courtis Fuller?

Myspace isn't an adult chatline or a smutt filled magazine...

Derek and Pete both have myspace accounts...

As doees Good Morning Tri-State... it refrences David Rose actually.
