The attack on the US Consultant in Benghazi was a perfect example. My Twitter feed was filled with images and details in near real time. I knew what was happening in Benghazi long before CNN or even Hillary Clinton thanks to following a number of international journalists.
So it pains me greatly to see the idiot and fake journalists at WCNC use Twitter to clickbait followers into fake news stories with little and in most cases no substance.
Their hope is that followers will keep clicking adding to their page view count and perhaps even click on a few of their clickbait ads disguised as news. Classic examples are "Why men can't get enough of this underwear" or "You wont believe what Hillary Duff looks like now."
Today WCNC offers up yet another fine example of how the station views their follower's IQ and the station's role is reporting news in Charlotte.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Crews responded to a call from Charlotte Douglas airport Tuesday night after suspicious noises came from one of the planes.
Officials did not specify what kind of noises the plane was making or what caused it to happen.
Airport officials did not release the number of passengers affected by this report.

Yep that's it a plane made funny noises! Sadly they will probably receive an Emmy for this in-depth reporting.
If you work for this station you might as well be flipping burgers at McD's because you have about as much integrity as a Filipino dice game.
Go ahead add WCNC to your CV and point to your accomplishments as I generated clickbait news for Charlotte's ratings loser.
