Here we go again. A nice one-day event to glorify the nut-case Judge Carole Clark. Shame on you Mr. Newspaper Reporter for a Third Rate Newspaper. Double shame on you Nelson Clyde.

All of these kids could have been adopted through the normal legal channels. Why the constant free campaign advertising for local politicians and judges such as Matt Bingham and Carole Clark?

I do a valuable service to this community in the private sector. Where's MY free advertising from KLTV and Tylerpaper?

OK, other than naming Clark as the judge presiding over the ceremony, her name isn't even mentioned elsewhere and she is not quoted saying anything. I see nothing in the story promoting her.
In other words, this is a story about families adopting children. And you have a problem about this? Seriously?

I don't have a problem with families adopting children. I think it's wonderful. It happens all the time. They did the same article, almost verbatim, last year. Why not think of some other angle other than Carole Clark, champion of humanity, saves a bunch of kids from doom?

I have a problem with the local news apparatus that constantly names and quotes local politicians when they have done little to NOTHING. For example, a fugitive murder suspect gets tracked down and caught in Louisiana, whom do they interview? Chief of police? Sheriff? Nope. They get Matt Bingham (who had NOTHING to do with apprehending the fugitive) prominantly mentioned in the article.
