Best Of 2008


Staff Pick

CL staff once felt safe to walk around Charlotte without a Glock — until we switched to WSOC Channel 9. Murders, robberies and crime alerts galore! Exactly what we need to be: scared. Who needs coverage of the city’s political or cultural issues when you can show live Skyzoom footage from some minor shooting? None of the city’s newscasts could ever be mistaken for The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, but WSOC goes the extra mile to pander to our bloodthirsty, fear-mongering natures. We appreciate that. Who needs enlightenment? Give us fear.
