L.A. Stations Keep on Car Chases

Feb 11, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Los Angeles television stations can’t seem to give up their habit of filming police chases, with the latest stark example taking place on Monday when the local stations focused on a slow-speed chase of a white Bentley and a suspect accused of assaulting his girlfriend— which some suspected was R&B artist Chris Brown, Daily Variety reports. KNBC-TV, which has been urging newscasts to stop televising car chases, halted its 11 p.m. news program to follow the chase, which turned out not to involve Brown, the trade paper says. “It was a wasted newscast, and I feel terrible about that,” KNBC news director Bob Long tells Variety.
