***ATTN: LAS VEGAS CONSUMERS: BEWARE OF NEWS REPORTER COLLEEN MCCARTY WITH CHANNEL 8 NEWS NOW-CBS***

Wow, talk about sleaze bad Reporters desperate for ratings! Let's talk about News Reporter Colleen McCarty with Channel 8-CBS in Las Vegas, NV.

This so called news "reporter" will go to any lengths to sell her "gotcha journalism" to naive consumers.

Her employer...no surprise to us... CBS, Inc.- known for sleaze bag journalism.

Do NOT succume her inaccurate, jadded self serving stories. Remember, news casts edit every report they broadcast in order to make the "subject" OR "bad guy" look as BAD as possible! Then, of course, here comes the amazing happy faced save the world (OR AT LEAST LAS VEGAS!) BIMBO Colleen McCarty! This moran goes to great lengths to mislead consumers in Las Vegas!!!

Real reporters with integrity do extensive legit research BEFORE they go spouting off nonsense to consumers. Colleen McCarty is FAR FROM A REPSECTABLE REPORTER AND HAS ABSOLUTELY NO INTEGRITY, QUITE LIKE HER EMPLOYER! Apparantely, a recent survey showed that most consumers do NOT tune into Colleen McCarty's jadded reporting, unless a consumer is tired of watching Charlie's Angele's Re runs. We'll take Jaqueline Smith anyday over stone faced McCarty.

Again, Colleen McCarty with KLAS-TV NEWS in Las Vegas is NOT a respectable reporter. It appears she also loves to toot her own horn on line with her self serving commentary and Press Releases, mostly created by Colleen HERSELF!

Sleaze to the max people! Research on Colleen McCarty also shows a pattern of lawsuits against her alleging botched inaccurate reporting. But, that doesn't stop her or CBS! Colleen has the deep pockets of CBS to fight her battles and then pay PRE TRIAL monetery settlements (CONFIDENTIAL OF COURSE!) to defamed individuals and businesses in Las Vegas! But hey..... the cost of litigation is outweighed by the ratings, which appear to be getting worse and worse for Reporter Colleen McCarty!

Thanks to the Internet, now sleazy reporters can be exposed just like they allegedly expose individuals in their self created manipulated news "stories".

Let's start a BOYCOTT of CBS and scum bag News Reporter Colleen McCarty in Las Vegas Nevada.

Also, if you've been a VICTIM of her Mickey Mouse journalism, post your comments here! Like they say, Reporters has more skeletons in THEIR CLOSET then the subjects of their "news" peices.

Let's all pull some of Colleen McCarty's skeleton's out of her closet! Apparantely, she has many!

DO US ALL A BIG FAVOR COLLEEN MCCARTY.... LEAVE LAS VEGAS AND BRING YOUR SLEAZY, DISGUSTING GOTCHA JOURNALISM WITH YOU!

Karma's a bitch honey!

Colleen Mc Carty and Steve Kanigher finally are being sued

AUTHOR: Kelli from Las Vegas - (United States of America)

I have been following a blog http://www.facingfreedomschallenge.blogspot.com/

This individual has been defamed by KLAS-TV8 and two reporters Colleen McCarty and Steve Kanigher, the Individual whose name is Jack Ferm is suing them and the Media in Las Vegas have kept the public from knowing about the lawsuit.

I watched McCarty and her "know it all" attitude in her reporting, and I am happy to see someone standing up to her and taking her to task for her made up reports. I had suspected for some time that her reports were being hyped, then I found this blog while looking her up and also saw the lawsuit which is also listed, if you search for Colleen McCarty and Lawsuits, you will find alot of information about this "reporter" and her associate Steve Kanigher. search him the same way.

After reading these articles, I wonder why KLAS keeps them employed apparently they make up their reports or slant them to attack and d estroy people for what they claimis news.

To the Moran (yes, Moran) in Rebuttal's 3,5,6,7 and 8:

If you have no interest in TV or Las Vegas (which is obvious from your comments), why the hell are you wasting everyone's time with your worthless comments?

If anyone has any background info on McCarty, including lawsuit history, please post here.

AND WHAT DID SHE DO --EXACTLY?

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

AFTER DEFAMING THIS WOMAN AND HER CAMERAPERSON, MAYBE YOU SHOULD TAKE A DEEP BREATH, SIT DOWN, CALM YOURSELF AND THINK.

THINK ABOUT WHAT EXACTLY IT WAS TO MAKE YOU WRITE THIS.

WHAT DID SHE DO TO HARM YOU?

ALL I SEE IS A RANT AGAINST A BROADCAST MEDIA PERSONALITY.

NOBODY WATCHES MUCH BROADCAST TV THESE DAYS BUT CBS DOES HAVE GOOD SHOWS LIKE "CSI" AND ALL OF THE OTHER JERRY BRUCKHEIMER -PRODUCED ENTERTAINMENT WHICH I LIKE AS ESCAPIST ENTERTAINMENT.

YOU DON'T LIKE HER. DON'T WATCH HER SHOWS.

Looks like this commentary struck a nerve with the infamous Colleen McCarty!

AUTHOR: L_shulman@aol.com - (USA)

The last entry was obviously written by Colleen McCarty herself. Well Colleen, when you purport to be a respectable reporter and do nothing but make the economy here in Vegas WORSE, what do expect?


Oh, sorry did you really think that every consumer in town thinks you're the savior news reporter? Give me a break. Your obviously desperate to make a name for yourself and will obviously stoop to low levels to do so.


I have a great tag line for the next Channel 8 News Now story.....


"Colleen McCarty and CBS leave Las Vegas.... consumers have had enough!"


How does that sound Colleen?


Stop using alias's Colleen and come out and face your fears!


Yes, let's get some pics of this con for this report.

so....

AUTHOR: debtexpert - (United States of America)

How long have you been a competitor of hers?????


You are honestly complaining about a news reporter. Your life must be pretty boring.


Sue her?? For what??  Have you ever heard of turning the channel? How many times have you sat in front of the TV watching her just to complain about her? You need therapy.

Colleen McCarty-leave Las Vegas-please!

AUTHOR: The Roburn Family-LV - (USA)

What a horrible news reporter this woman is. I too worked for an electronics company here in Vegas that was harrassed for months by this self serving manipulative idiot! She accussed us of overcharging our clients, which we were not. She did broadcast some crap, the company was going to sue, they decided not to waste the energy. Sleaze balls like her (yes, I agree with all the other complaints against her) always get f****d themselves in the end. Like another consumer said, bad karma always comes back to you. I will never forget this lady coming into our office and accusing us of stuff she knew nothing about. Colleen McCarty and CBS TV are obviously looking for any crap they can air to make money off ratings. With everything going on in this world and she's reporting about a bunch of s**t like she does. Yes, she needs to get a life and get out of town. She has reported on PurFect Auto Service for years and it has done nothing to the company. PurFect auto is also WINNING the case against them by the Nevada Attorney General. Funny, huh? But McCarty still airs her dumb ass s**t to people all the time. Yes, thanks to the internet, now reporters like Colleen McCarty can be exposed for the con merchants they are! Loved these complaints, hopefully more will come in on her.

someone should post her picture on this site. See how she likes it.

Screw Colleen McCarty and CBS TV execs for backing her in her bad journalism tactics.

Yes, Colleen McCarty is an awful reporter in Vegas! Thanks Rip Off Report!

AUTHOR: Helen S.-Las Vegas - (USA)

I totally agree with this commentary on Colleen McCarty! She is totally a scum bag Reporter, if she can even call herself a Reporter!

She, and her deadbeat camera men (LOSERS) harrassed a business I worked at last year! She came in thinking she had a hot story due to one of our customers who didn't at all follow our service contract. Colleen knew this but went ahead, desperate for ratings and created a story on my ex boss's business which was a great company and still is regardless of the deadbeats at Channel 8 News Now and Colleen McCarty! I agree with everything the individual had to say about her and Channel 8 and CBS.

It's good to know that many consumers are no longer tunning into Channel 8 and McCarty. These types of sleazy wanna be reporters need to get a life. They obviosuly do have many skeletons in their closet and yes I'm sure McCarty has plenty.

As a mother, it's appalling to see another mom act in this manner just to make money.

Shame on you Colleen and Channel 8! Your a disgrace to the entire world of journalism!
