We got a bit of guff last year for making fun of the dog-and-pony show that is Detroit Homecoming
. But at least we did it intentionally. The newshounds over at Channel 7 did so by accident
In a bright and upbeat piece on the sales pitch to people who left Detroit behind, the channel's screengrab for its online summary
captured the graphic at a moment when the news crawl beneath described a very different kind of homecoming.
The fragment of news seems to describe a bloody home invasion, reading: " ... he was shot this morning after two men broke into his house ..."
Is somebody having a bit of fun behind the scenes? Either way, this must be one of the most interesting pitches to come home to Detroit ever.
