KFSM: Let's Make a Deal?

Did KFSM/Channel 5/Fort Smith make a deal with a judge to avoid a fine after the station's managing editor broke a judge's ban on no electronic posts during a recent trial?  TV Spy recently ran a story about the issue with KFSM News Director Bill Cummings saying, " “There was never any discussion with the court on content of that story nor was there any quid pro quo to avoid a fine or other action.”

“KSFM did not, nor would we ever, relinquish control over our content or editorial process,” said Cummings. “In this case we did acknowledge that Mr. Henry unintentionally violated Judge Karren’s rules regarding tweeting in his courtroom. In additional to apologizing to the court, we deemed it appropriate to take a positive step and offer to do a story on children’s advocacy — a topic we have covered many times on 5NEWS.”
