January 31, 1988

My husband and I were appalled by the pit bull report on the Jan. 9 broadcast of "West 57th" on CBS. Although the main thrust of the story was valid (not all pit bulls need to be feared by humans), the methods used to tell the story were purely sensationalistic. I had to close my eyes during extended footage of two pit bulls mauling each other, a pit bull being put to death in a pound and a dead pit bull being thrown into a plastic garbage bag for disposal. This sort of "news" has no place on television.
