Local Ohio TV Station Covers Corruption Trial With Puppets [VIDEO]

TV Station Uses Puppets to Cover Trial
WOIO

Currently, a high-profile corruption trial is taking place in Ohio, and in order to circumvent the fact that cameras aren’t allowed in the courtroom, a local TV station has come up with a unique solution to report trial highlights: puppets.

WOIO in Cleveland has been using puppets on a daily basis to cover the trial of former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora, who’s currently being tried on charges of bribery and racketeering.

Watch an example of the puppet coverage, complete with a talking squirrel reporter, below.
