You know, between WKTV and The OD, their reporting is absolutely awful.

This weekend there were a lot of serious accident/incidents in the area. They both seem to rely on scanner or third party reports instead of doing any kind of investigation on their own.

What happened with the fireworks accident??

Hunter dies in Sangerfield (reported by the OD originally as Marcy)

The Holland Patent bus driver & son

You get a small blurb in the paper or online and on TV get as little info as possible. Thank GOD I get the Syracuse stations at home and check them out online.

This is nothing new the OD and WKTV both have an extremely long history of sucking. When was the last investigative report that you read in the OD? And I mean investigative, not rehashing some old crime. The word NEVER comes to mind. Its like they are afraid to tell us anything. And WKTV I'm sorry but the "Cat Show" is not news.

NewsChannel 9 in Syracuse has the best Oneida County news. They reported on the fireworks accident and about the Holland Patent school bus driver with video interviews.

Utica area news doesn't have the resources to report current seven days a week is what it comes down to. If you read newspapers online, you'll notice that syracuse.com , larger market, DOES have that ability. The bottom line is, in the Utica market, you aren't going to get much news on Saturday and Sunday. Staff is minimal.
that doesnt make it right

just because it's the way it is doesn't make it right. Staff should be assigned to shifts to cover weekends, holidays and eveings. We deserve more than we are getting. OD and WKTV are not doing their job in keeping us informed.

SHAME ON THEM!! We deserve better.

you people are crazy and clearly dont pay attention. wktv nailed every single story this weekend. they had fatal accident first and had video, they had rape in hol pat and had fireworks accident first too.( OD.com had firework accident and hunting accident early on too)
i even got an annoying text from them about it.
not sure what websites you all are looking at.
If you call Channel 9 in Syracuse the best for those reasons, then WKTV is the best too.
also, ppl at ktv always say "police say" not sure how that is scanner based. the od says " radio transmissions" and are usually wrong.

OD reporters are terrified of offending the politicans and power brokers. Bob "Jimmy Olsen" Brauchle is the worst of them. Just look at his latest on the Whiteboro Villige vote. He has also surpressed stories about New Hartford out of fear of embarressing the politicans there. The best he can come up with in New Hartford is a late breaking story on how the Town Dog Park is growing. He's not a reporter he's a suck up!
