KCTV5 News writing

From their site (link below): KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) - "On chilly mornings, some people take to leaving their car running while they go back inside their warm house. Others, though, avoid leaving their car unattended for fear of having it stolen." Excuse me? "Take to leaving"? Seriously? Did you go to journalism school? How about "some people leave their car running..." Is this what we have to expect from local media? How far do we fall from here? We need expectations of our local print and visual media. I mean, come on, this is the easy stuff. and if the writer doesn't catch it, do they have editors at television station news offices? Sure, we have bigger problems in the world but this is your job. Yikes. Link: http://www.kctv5.com/story/16148040/victim-gets-shot-while-trying-to-fight-off-carjacker
