  2. (TVNT Nov 2018 Sweeps Original) I was looking for an old film clip in the University of Texas KHOU film archives... In 1989 KHOU donated their news film library to the university. Over the next few years the film clips were viewed and documented, and entered into the historic archives of the university. In the overview on how the films are cataloged, I came across an interesting statement from the people that did all the leg work on the archive project. Under the portion called "Scope and Content" ... "The titles that have been assigned to each film clip were created by people working at KHOU-TV, probably the camera operators or editors. In many cases, they are not very descriptive of what is actually on the film, and actually tell more about the biases of those working at the station. Now that peaked my interest. What "biases" could they be talking about? Further down on the page we find "Additional Notes" from the staff of the university. it's an interesting and somewhat embarrassing look into the candid workings of a 1960's TV news operation. WARNING: This link contains frank language that was common at that time. Only go to the link of you are able to handle the historic yet negative period descriptions of race. https://legacy.lib.utexas.edu/taro/houpub/00022/hpub-00022p1.html We have actually come a long, long way. I make no judgement, and it should probably be noted that this was not uncommon at the time.. every station is full of questionable story titles. I commend the staff of the university for the way that sanitized the titles, and yet preserved the historical value of the entry's. Story slugs/ titles are much more standardized across the various news / edit platforms now , but it's a reminder to remember, that stuff can come back to embarrass you ... ...no matter how benign it may have felt...and for long after anyone ever knows.
