Most. Optimistic. Local. News. Station. EVER.

Apparently Central Florida didn't get being the center of a media circus out of its system during the Casey Anthony trial, because here we are again with George Zimmerman.

[Note: I'm not going to comment on the specifics of the trial because 1) I haven't been following it closely enough to feel informed, 2) I'm pretty sure the internet isn't suffering from a lack of people offering commentary; and 3) there's approximately eleventy bazillion things I'd rather write about.]

Anyway! From what I've seen on social media the past few days, the trial has been quite...entertaining. (A witness testified she could hear grass? Huh? Yeah, I'm OK not watching every minute of this.) And then WFTV tweeted this:
Is there some sort of award for optimism in journalism? If so, WFTV should just be declared the winner for this year...if not the decade.

Gotta love their response:
Call me Eeyore, but I just can't share their hopefulness. Scrolling through that twitter feed is not for the faint of heart.

Best wishes to the social media team at WFTV! I'm curious to see what "insightful" tweets they find to put on air.
