KXLY TV in Spokane, Washington is taking heat from some viewers for exposing supposed do-gooder as a criminal.
Sunday afternoon, a man called the KXLY newsroom with an offer. “The caller told our weekend anchor Aaron Luna that he wanted to help Spokane’s homeless population so he was going to hand out thousands of dollars in the next few weeks and that we could come along,” said News Director Jerry Post. “After he called, he sent emails with several videos showing himself handing out cash.”
Monday, Luna took a ride with the man who said he didn’t want to be identified and KXLY got video of the “donor” handing out twenty dollar bills to homeless people.
But staff at the TV station was suspicious. “This guy said he wanted to be anonymous but still he wanted attention,” Post said.
