Where Are They Now? Taking Arrows (Literally)

|| By FITSNEWS || This website used to mix it up from time to time with former WIS TV 10 reporter Jody Barr, but that was mostly due to the station he worked for … not him personally.

Barr is a great investigative reporter – exceedingly tenacious – and we were sad to see him leave South Carolina.

What’s he up to these days?  Dealing with the “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,” apparently.

From Cincinnati.com …

A 27-year-old Westwood (Ohio) man was arrested Tuesday after shooting a Fox-19 WXIX TV reporter in the leg with a compound arrow, according to Cincinnati police arrest records.

Daniel Fisher is facing an assault charge related to an incident in which police said he shot an arrow that ricocheted off the ground and struck the victim – Fox-19 investigative reporter Jody Barr – in the leg, a police incident report stated.

Barr, who confirmed the details of the incident to The Enquirer, said he was not seriously injured.

Whoa …

That’s certainly one way to address the media!

Jody should be grateful that the dumb son of a bitch was not trying to shoot an apple off his head

If the dude had done such, the next headline would have read, Now live on WXIX Jodie Barr

I’m sure Steve Benjamin is disappointed in the outcome.

Kinda shows you why FITSNews panders and plays to the liberals. Its staff does not have the guts to take on the leftwing hit squads.
And it’s why this website, and all of the leftist media, HATE Donald Trump. It’s VERY dangerous to upset the myths, lies and fables of the Democrat Party power structure, especially when Obama rules like a vengeful Stalinist from upon high.
Corrupt and Greedy leftists do not like having their lifestyles disrupted.

Hi GT. Good to see everyone is still a liberal to you. While Fits seems to be supportive of Trump, as usual, you accuse them of being against him. While I certainly plan on voting for him in the primary and (hopefully) the general election, no doubt you will accuse me of supporting the pants suit hag.

Anyway, good to know you are still alive and well.

The arrow on Hillary’s logo bothers me. It points right, hell I doubt her car even has a right turn signal. All she know is hard left. That logo is a violation of the truth in advertising laws.

It’s amazing that a story about Jody Barr getting shot by and arrow inspires so much insight.

Is this a story about bow and arrow control?

I wish Jody would come back here. With Butch Todd gone as Manager at WIS, I wonder if the new manager might be more inclined to let Jody do what he does so well, rather than keep him on a two inch leash. There are still loads of corruption in Richland and Lexington counties that he could mine and feel like he had hit “the motherlode”, every few days or so.

I don’t beleive they have a new manager yet. It’s still in the “national search” phase.

At this point anyone who is worth a shit is realizing the reason it’s still open is because it’s a shithole station.

He’s not a young female, so they wouldn’t hire him. Even after Todd left WIS is still a training station.

Even though I liked Jody his body always had that “pin cushion” shape.

Did not get to see him up here, Cable TV in these parts did not carry a WIS-TV.
Don’t think we missed much. I have a relative in Columbia, and she loved everyone at WISTV until Donita Todd took over as General Manager. She says it now the pits, she loved the old local talent.

Donita “Butch” Todd ruined that station.

erneba July 22, 2015 at 3:41 pm

Yeah, My relative was really disgusted with Todd, she voiced pretty much the same opinion.
Bummer, I used to watch when I lived in Columbia. And can remember back to the days of Tootsie ? and Jerry Pate.

Jody Barr was a bulldog that gave State Government, especially, the highway patrol in check. WIS gave in to political pressure and neutered Barr. He had to leave the state. WIS has cowered from exposing government corruption every since. They ran off Ben Hoover and thankfully he has found a home at another Columbia station. Even Fits has been hesitant to break any hard hitting stories on state government lately.

Don’t believe the arrow story. Joe’s ass is so big any arrow would have hit that first.

I’ve never seen a group of people so into their local TV reporters.

I guess there just isn’t that much to do in Columbia.

You don’t care what Dawndee does in her time off? How about creepy old man “Papa” Joe Penner?

You’d need to pull a Bill Cosby to get past the bitchness.

Papa Joe is actually a really nice guy in person. Dawndy is a bitch. I’ve met them both on a couple different occasions. Susan Aude was a sweet lady as well.

Jody messed with the Governor, which angered a lot of Republicans who buy a lot of advertising on WIS…..The choice between Jody and advertising revenue is an easy one….That’s my perspective. What’s yours?
