The staff at NBC Bay Area must like CBS 5 anchor Ken Bastida's "Good Question" segment a lot. How much? They re-wrote his script for a segment on Lake Merritt and posted it on the NBC11 website under the byline of Sajid Farooq.
However, NBC Bay Area gave the competition full credit, even calling Bastida a "veteran reporter."
Here's the second paragraph of NBC's story:
- CBS 5 reporter Ken Bastida wondered just that and set out to dig up the dirt. Dr. Richard Bailey of the Lake Merritt Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the lake, had some interesting answers for the veteran reporter.
