    TV Station takes heat for exposing criminal

    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."
