Southwest Florida's Finest Broadcast

Whoops! Southwest Florida's New Leader in News must be WINKing so fast they can't read instructions.

I wonder what the penalty is for a news station that forgets to follow the Associated Press's instructions.

Oh here it is the AP's code of ethics:

The newspaper should guard against inaccuracies, carelessness, bias or distortion through emphasis, omission or technological manipulation.

It should acknowledge substantive errors and correct them promptly and prominently.

But hey Fox news is in constant violation of the AP code and they keep using their stuff too.

Oh well, if antyhing WINK's webmaster will get a chance to fix this little doozy.
