Tuscaloosa News city editor Katherine Lee laughed when I told her that this story was all over Facebook and Twitter.
Why no mention of “Breaking Bad” and its meth-making Walter White character? I asked. “It wasn’t [left out] on purpose,” she says; they just didn’t think it was a big deal — although Lee says she and her police reporter laughed when they saw the police blotter item.
“We might add [a show reference] now,” says the editor.
You’re familiar with the show? I asked. “I just started watching it. My fiance and I are now on season two.”
UPDATE: Cops and courts reporter Stephanie Taylor, who wrote the Walter White post, says in an email: “My husband and I are huge ‘Breaking Bad’ fans. I thought it was hilarious when I saw the ‘most wanted’ [item]. I posted it and didn’t think a lot of people would get it, and that those who did would get the inside joke.”
