Dennis told TVSpy last week that she urged her fellow news directors to “show respect” because the video was “traumatic to people at KUSA.”
“We had a spirited editorial debate in our newsroom and determined journalistically it was the right thing to do,” Kosowski told the Denver Post recently. “The other stations are wimps. They caved in to pressure from KUSA.”
KDVR, a Local TV-owned Fox-affiliate, aired footage of the bite last week, following the incident, and has continued to feature the footage while covering the latest developments in the story, including an exclusive interview this week with the dog’s owner.
“KUSA is overly sensitive,” Kosowski said.
