FTVLive has been telling you how stations are doing Facebook Live broadcasts in which they show a picture and ask people to vote on one or the other?
We have seen Coke vs. Pepsi, or Apple Pie vs. Pecan and a bunch of other crap.
This Facebook Live cancer is spreading across country to station after station. It has no news value and makes the station look stupid.
But, just when you thought, there is no way it can get any worse, we give you WFLA in Tampa and their FB Live:
Maybe this props up your Facebook numbers, but it does NOTHING for your credibility.
We can't believe that stations are doing this crap, but we are officially giving up trying to stop it. If you guys really think crap like that above is good for your station, then have at it.
We think you look like idiots...no matter where Ollie the Ostrich wears his bowtie.
