CBS Affiliate Slaps a Ban on Coverage of Lindsay Lohan THR
A CBS affiliate has banned coverage of Lindsay Lohan in the station's news reports after the news director asked viewers whether they wanted a halt to stories about the troubled starlet, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Washington, D.C., station WUSA-TV’s news director, Fred D’Ambrosi, raised the issue by writing on Twitter that he was thinking of banning all Lindsay Lohan stories, which was retweeted by the station with a request for viewer responses, the piece notes.
The result was a series of colorful tweets, such as one woman's response: "yes please f--k Lindsay." Another response asked that the station also stop covering the "K" family, presumably a reference to the Kardashians.
The news director said he ultimately decided to kill all Lohan-related stories. "The people have spoken!" he wrote on Twitter.
He added that the station will still cover pop culture, however.
