We have to call out WCBS in New York for trying to deceive their viewers.
The station did a story about their News Chopper and the crew that fly and report from it.
Here is the tweet that WCBS sent out to promote the story:
FTVLive watched the story online and they also used this shot of “Chopper 2.”
The problem is that “Chopper 2” they are showing is the chopper for KCBS in LA.
WCBS is still sharing its helicopter with Fox O&O WNYW and it looks nothing like this one. The aircraft used by Fox and CBS is white and logo-less, and is a Bell 206 not an A-Star.
When you watch the story, you see the real chopper that WCBS uses in the background and it has no logo and is just plain white.
A station using video of another station’s chopper located 3000 miles away is wrong!
You are a station in the No. 1 market and you are basically lying to viewers.
Shame on you WCBS!
Here is the story that the station air.
Update: WCBS has pulled the story down after FTVLive’s report. Hmmmmm? Was it something we said?
