OKLAHOMA CITY -- You've been sounding off all day on my question about whether we went overboard with our coverage of the Tower guy in Tulsa.

Jim writes: "..the media should have reported that there was an idiot on a tower and then left it alone."

Wayne in Fairmont: "Your live feed shows there are people in Oklahoma that do care about our fellow man."

Jeannie added: "I had no problem with my programming being split on the screen."

And K says: "It is not like KWTV dropped other coverage. Thank you for showing it."

C. Aaron disagrees: "To keep that idiot on the screen just in the hopes that he came down.. ..is selfish and ludicrous."

Michael in Wellston: "This guy was wanting attention and the length of time you guys aired it is exactly what he wanted."

I disagree Michael I don't think he wanted attention, he needs help.

Rachel in Ponca City: "I think you covered his recovery tastefully.."

Angela in Edmond: "I have to say that the split screen with the live coverage was great.

Jadan in Hydro: "This was a very bizarre story but thankfully one with a good ending-It's not everyday we get one of those!!"

Lisa-Kingfisher: "I thought your coverage was fine. My heart ached and many prayers were said.."

Finally Sandra says: "Wow I am totally shocked the tower guy got so much attention. Maybe he will get a book deal or something now."
