Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Weather wars, sometimes called TV radar wars or Doppler wars, are a kind of sensationalist journalism primarily concerning weather news. The "war" is typified by competing local TV news stations engaging in technological one-upmanship to increase viewership.The conflict has included attack ads, notably when WTWO, a television station in Terre Haute, Indiana, attacked WTHI-TV's coverage by name by claiming that WTHI's Doppler weather radar and staff were inferior to WTWO's. The conflict was later satirized by The Daily Show.
