PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia TV news anchor is being criticized for trying to get her Twitter followers to watch the station's coverage of a deadly shooting by comparing it to "Breaking Bad."
The Philadelphia Inquirer (http://bit.ly/1af41Ut ) reports WTXF-TV news anchor Joyce Evans tweeted "Thought 'Breaking Bad' was hot last Sunday? See who's breaking bad in SW Phllly, leavin' 6 people SHOT -- Tonite at Ten!"
Viewers immediately criticized Evans, with one person writing it sounded "like it was written by a sociopath."
Evans is a longtime anchor at the Fox affiliate. She later responded that she was trying to compare the "very real life drama" of the shooting to the fictional show about a chemistry teacher turned methamphetamine dealer.
Sunday evening's shooting killed one person and wounded five. It remains under investigation.
