Cleveland station’s ‘Puppet’s Court’ goes national

Cleveland’s alt-weekly calls WOIO-TV‘s use of puppets to cover a corruption trial “a publicity grab,” while the CBS affiliate’s news director tells the AP that it’s simply “a satirical look at the trial [and] I think we have it appropriately placed at the end of the newscast. …It’s not intended in any way to replace any of the serious coverage” that the station has aired.
