"a totally clueless action by the media."

Emergency workers, first responders, commuting hospital workers, and MEMA peeps probably all still find traffic reports useful.

True but what I'm suggesting is that the local stations don't need to stick additional people and equipment on the roads when sites like MassDOT already provide the same info (less reporter with microphone making snowballs and adding to the drinking game).

And giving a traffic report is different from filming a reporter in a storm.
