It’s old news that shrinking audiences and dwindling budgets make it harder for local news operations to cover their communities with depth and nuance. The rapid comings and goings of newsroom talent inevitably leave us with reporters and producers who know far too little about the city they cover. But c’mon, NewsChannel5, surely it’s not setting the bar too high to expect a major local news operation to know the name of the building where the city’s political business happens. Yes, Nashville does have a City Hall, but unless I’m mistaken, Metro Council meetings are still happening with no band and no cover.
