How is this News?

WREG aired a segment about the engagement of Harold Ford Jr.to a woman named Emily Threlkeld. The focus of the segment was how people might react to the engagement of an African-American man to a Caucasian woman.  Am I missing something here? Although there will be some grumblings from ‘haters’  on both sides, how is this newsworthy? Just covering this ’story’ gives it a degree of undeserved credibility. Are we really that backward in Memphis? I don’t think so. Go to WREG Video Player to see the story and judge for yourself.
