After watching their "Live Election" coverage Tuesday night, I am livid that a cent of my student fees goes to Student Television. Instead of seeing students attempting to simulate the professional tone and atmosphere of a real-world newsroom, I saw a bunch of tactless, rude, juvenile and self-admitted drunks embarrass themselves, the election and UNC in general.
Rather than receive relevant information on the races and the candidates, viewers were forced to endure well over an hour of sock puppet tomfoolery, sloppy mistakes and tasteless jokes, some even at the expense of the late Michael Hooker! I don't know who has oversight or programming responsibility over there, but it certainly isn't anyone with any sense of how to create semi-professional or even viewable television. Come the runoff on Tuesday, I'll make a point not to turn to STV at all during the evening.
I think anyone who watched their disgusting performance on election night shares my main sentiment. Give me my damn money back.
