What's Got Me Bugged?

I'll steal the phrase from FOX-29's segment "What's Bugging You" because THIS POST is about FOX-29's "News at Ten".
On Thursday night's broadcast, May 14th--the news crew at FOX decided they should lead their newscast with the John & Kate rocky relationship story of TLC network's "John & Kate Plus 8". I find it unbelievable this would lead a local newscast when Chrysler announced the same day that close to 800 dealerships in this country would close in the next few weeks. Approximately 15 in our local area are affected.
Is this the direction FOX-29 is going? *NewsFLUFF*? It sure makes one wonder.
