Jail Doc Shows Late on BKAT

Andrew Binion writes:

Those who tuned into BKAT at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday to watch a short, government-produced documentary about the jail system featuring Kitsap County Sheriff Steve Boyer were disappointed.

But the four-and-a-half-hour long county commissioner’s meeting from Monday night, where commissioners unanimously approved a $330 million budget, had pushed back the documentary.

Much to the chagrin of some dedicated viewers. Part of Bremerton Kitsap Access Television‘s job is to provide coverage of the county’s ruling body. The station tries to show entire meetings.

“As much as we can,” said Jon Rauch, production coordinator. “Usually it’s gavel to gavel.”

The documentary aired at about 3:30 p.m., he said.

But not before the station received calls complaining.

“We got quite a few, I was surprised,” he said.
