KFSM: We know our place, Wal-Mart!

Posted By on Tue, Jan 29, 2008 at 11:54 PM

Watching KFSM (Channel 5), and saw a report on the “Wal-Mart Stimulus Package,,” which was really nothing more than shameless plug for Wal-Mart’s slashing prices prior to Super Bowl Sunday.

Word for word, it seemed to mirror the press release sent out by Wally World - no rewriting required? It was even creepier than usual, watching the smiling faces telling us all about the “Wal-Mart Stimulus Package.”

Do the folks at KFSM have to draw straws to see who has to has to sell their soul to Wally World on any particular day?

Or have they no shame at all?

Escape from Hell

Looking through the movie schedule for the next few hours, I see that TBN (a religious channel) has listed “Escape from Hell,” which is described this way:

“A sadistic warden pursues scantily clad prison escapees.”

Whoa, I thought. Somebody is asleep at the wheel. No doubt they actually have scheduled another movie of the same name, which actually is more religiously themed.

Still, it’s fun to think about the emails that would flow in should the advertised movie (featuring America’s Sweetheart, Linda Blair) actually air in the time slot.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
