KARK-TV staffers fired for videos spoofing news business

Three on-air employees and a photographer at Little Rock’s KARK-TV were fired after posting videos on YouTube that the station’s general manager calls “unauthorized, offensive and distasteful.” The videos spoof broadcast news as well as life in central Arkansas. (The station’s slogan is “Arkansas Matters.”)
