KPRC crawl suffers from bad timing

Some stories and news crawls don't mix well

This KPRC 2 newscast image has been making the rounds on social media and email. As you can see above, the CG title reads "Teacher Facing Child Porn Charges." Under that, the crawl, which runs through the newscast, just happened to stop on "HAVE A GREAT WEEK AT SCHOOL!"

Wow.

You can actually watch the video for yourself here.

Thanks to CNN and other cable channels, local news embraced the crawl years ago. This goes beyond what KPRC does, but I've never been a fan of any local news crawls. The cable channels generally have decent info - in my opinion the locals - not so much.
