Houston’s Channel 11 Keeps it Classy

If, of course, by “classy,” one means “slanted.”

Okay…

So Nikki Araguz is taking her marriage case to the Court of Appeals.  What’s the deal, right?  After all, the text of the story is fairly straightforward:

The transgender widow of a Wharton County firefighter appeared in court on Monday to appeal a judge’s ruling that her marriage was invalid.

A judge recently ruled Nikki Araguz’s marriage to Captain Thomas Araguz was not valid because she was born a man, making her ineligible to receive $600,000 in her husband’s death benefits.

Araguz has been fighting with the firefighter’s family over the benefits ever since his death in a blaze at a local egg farm last year.

Thomas Araguz’s family argued that the money should go to the two children he had with his ex-wife.

According to attorneys, it’s likely that the $600,000 in benefits won’t be released until the appeals process is over, and that could take another year.

Well…

Really?

Someone who is almost as adept as Gloria Allred at the art of getting in front of cameras, and you go with a mugshot to illustrate a story about a marriage validity case?

The fact that she may have earned the mugshot is immaterial; the fact that this arrangement of text and photo looks as though it was put together to impress Roger Ailes by someone angling for a ‘fair and balanced’ gig at Fox ‘News’ is.

Oh…

and not only is KHOU classy, its lazy.
