Sweeps piece in L.A.- Is it the tease or the sleaze

KTLA doesn't want viewers to go "Ugly Betty" on them-- it's not a plug for the TV show!

I could go all over with a headline on this. Wax on- wax off? I'll stop now.

Can you file this under news you can use?
What's the viewer benefit?
Oh, that's right...it's Los Angeles. There is no shock factor.
You have to watch this...and they dog lick live shot seems to add insult to injury.
Do they teach this kind of coverage in j-school?
I'm wondering if this is the station's official salon and do the anchors at KTLA get this kind of styling as a perk?
