Does WOWK do any ACTUAL reporting?

If it's about broadcasting, radio, TV, satellite, cable, this is where to talk about it.

Does WOWK do any ACTUAL reporting?

Let's start with, I don't drink LaCroix and the underlying crux of the lawsuit *MAY* be accurate.

However:

Linalool is *not* an unnatural ingredient. It's found in hundreds of flowers and spice plants. (Birch, Cinnamon, and Lavender just to name three.)
It is not toxic, and is actually considered a beneficial oil. When processed down, it's also a source of Vitamin E.
It's used in over 60% of perfumed hygiene products which is why...
You know why cockroach spray doesn't smell horrible? They use Linalool to make it smell better. It has NOTHING to do with killing bugs.

I get this was a modern day version of the "rip and read" from WTNH/WFLA, but the headline alone is wrong, and the rest is sensationalized "journalism".

Google, people. It works.
