The long standing tradition of awarding the coveted GUARDIAN “Dope Reporter” status is about to re-emerge during the high water season along area rivers and streams.
The rules are simple. Any TV newsy caught needlessly standing in water will get the award. True rescues, wading to get a good camera angle, and other legitimate moves are exempt from the award. The award is intended to eliminate, well, DOPE REPORTER moves.
GUARDIAN readers are trained at spotting DOPE REPORTERS and can send nominations to us through the CONTACT button. Local nominations only please, we have seen many on national news of late.
To insure more advertising-free Boise Guardian news, please consider financial support.
