We all know that local TV news operations work hard to make us afraid not to watch, and that May Sweeps is like their Halloween. This month I'll show you some of the most spine-tingling, blood-dripping "Special Reports" from around the country.

WPVI Action News 6 in Philadelphia is a good place to start; the promotional shot above, from an ABC News site, shows them literally chasing an ambulance.

This is how WPVI's own site promotes a flesh-crawling exposé that will not only scare the shit out of you, but remind you to watch Desperate Housewives:

— A warning that will change the way you use your computer!

ANYONE.


If it's that easy, who else is doing it?
And what DAMAGE can they do?

It's REALLY scary!

Consumer Reporter Nydia Han with an eye-opening alert that will change the way you use your computer.

Monday on Channel 6 Action News at 11.
They actually say, "It's REALLY scary!"
