Wednesday, I asked readers to weigh in with their opinions on how local TV stations were covering the regional fires.
And, aside from some readers who groused that The Bee wasn't covering the media coverage enough, results were pretty much divided among "too much" and "not enough."
Barbara Boudreaux commented in an e-mail that she thought "the fire coverage by KCRA is not only excessive but obsessive. If there is a fire anywhere, even a grass fire, it is always 'top of the news' and their cameras linger for long periods on the flames."
Meanwhile, Barbara Sanfilippo appreciated KCRA's coverage - mostly.
A blog reader identified as "RepublicanKid" believed News 10 (KXTV) was the clear winner.
"While I don't know if they broke into programming, News 10 had the best overall coverage. They utilized their website very well with live video until late afternoon with a live chat going between a producer in the newsroom and viewers, who often reported developments as they saw the smoke."
And, finally, Susan Read believed all broadcasting outlets dropped the ball.
"I work (near) Kiefer Blvd. and Jackson Highway and I could not find anywhere, on TV or radio, that would tell me if and which streets were closed to fight the fire," she wrote. "Bottom line, with all the coverage of the fire, road closures should have been at the top of what to report."
