Petition for Ron & Don to Act with Sympathy and Humanity at the Plight of Others and to End their Vulture-Like Behavior sign now

We, the undersigned, find it revolting that KIRO hosts Ron & Don prey on the tragedy of others to self-aggrandize by bombastically calling attention to their occasional efforts at philanthropy, efforts that are often and obviously underwritten by their employer as opposed to genuine instances of charity motivated by humanitarian concern.

We, the undersigned, find it distasteful when KIRO hosts Ron & Don present topics of tragedy in ways designed to dramatize. The use of "music beds" to augment reports of now-happening tales of the death of Puget Sound residents and the use of hyper-dramatized verbiage such as "You want to make sure your brother-in-law's body doesn't end up in a garbage truck being burned in the streets, right?" when interviewing a person whose brother-in-law is missing is repugnant, in our opinion.

We, the undersigned, find it offensive when KIRO hosts Ron & Don couch descriptions of their reporting activities in ways designed to lead the listener into thinking they have a level of involvement in the real-life heroics of real-life heroes that does not exist. The use of encompassing descriptors such as "we offloaded supplies" when reporting on a press junket the host attended where he witnessed USAF airmen offloading supplies is one of scores of examples of this evidenced in recent days. While we believe one or two instances of encompassing descriptors is innocent and normal for casual speak, the frequency of use by these hosts belies the usual.

We, the undersigned, are horrified when KIRO hosts Ron & Don take listener emails and intentionally read them out-of-context in ways designed to hurt and offend victims of tragedy, then announce to said victims that they (the hosts) stand almost in solo solidarity as the defenders of the victims of tragedy in question. When the facts and background of this state-of-affairs is exposed on the host's blog on mynorthwest.com the hosts delete the comments detailing the evidence of this disgusting effort with aplomb. We find this behavior bizarre and off-kilter.
