    KDKAs new website is terrible, and so is the reporting. The old website was updated it seemed almost every ten minutes. This one is really bad. Look at the story above. Does anyone proofread anything?!

    I agree NLK. This is one of the worst cases of journalism that I have seen in a long time. Spelling errors, formatting errors. Get it together KDKA.

    facts and accurate reporting are not the business of the news. i would bet you that 90% of the stories that are reported are inaccurate. the only reason the news exist is to sell advertising space.
