This is a small station in Minnesota.
Look at the station’s Most Read stories.
While the country is in a tizzy about the stock market and credit ratings, the station is having a bonanza with a story about a “mystery road kill” that could not be identified but probably is a badger.
In the meantime, in order to increase the station’s Facebook following, the weatherman allowed himself to get tazed by cops. Lots of people click in for that too.
