Four employees of Little Rock's KARK were fired Thursday for making profane video spoofs of TV news and putting them on YouTube. The worst part? They were actually pretty funny! Video below.
The two-part series follows reporter Pete Johnson as he reports on a festival ("Wow, a story about a festival. My life couldn't get any worse."), ends up punching an interviewee on camera and deals with the professional consequences. Now, he's been fire in real life, along with two other reporters and a photographer. KARK's general manager told Arkansasbusiness.com:
I am personally shocked and saddened by the behavior of these employees. KARK has no tolerance for this type of behavior and messages that degrade and discredit our community and our employees.
