Today's headlines and the stormy open line

Posted By on Wed, Jul 23, 2014 at 4:24 PM

The line is open. And I'll give a look behind the curtain on our daily video effort.

We try to record the video between 1:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. It takes several more minutes to add some photos and headlines; upload it to YouTube; upload that to Facebook. I feel TV news people's pain. In a slow news spell, headlines can be hard to come by at 1:30 p.m. So we improvise. Then, news breaks out.

Today it was news from City Hall on a story we've followed. It also included a resolution of the LRAFB lockdown, though we still await the rest of that story.

Oh, and I forgot to say why we go to video at mid-afternoon. Readership/viewership is highest before 5 p.m. Arkansas Blog: SFW.


* STORMY WEATHER: It's blowing all across Arkansas. From Fort Smith to Paragould, trees are reported down, some metal buildings have overturned and water levels are rising from heavy rain.

  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
