While doing a piece on a local bike thief, the Fox 4 station in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas, just happened to catch the thief himself on camera, making for a slightly more interesting segment. Upon posting the video to YouTube, the station again threw itself into the middle of the story by responding to a critical commenter with some slightly cruel wit.

The video is titled "Fox 4 Photographer spots the thief who stole a triathlete's $2,000 bicycle," which a certain Mr. Hendricks took issue with.

Mr. Hendricks wanted to make a point to the station about their use of the word photography.

Dear Fox 4:

Please learn the difference between a "photographer" and a "videographer". Actually it's pretty simple - one takes still photographs, the other takes moving pictures and talkies.

Sincerely, Not a Moron.

The station responded promptly to Mr. Not a Moron.

Photography: the art or process of producing images by the action of radiant energy and especially light on a sensitive surface (as film or an optical sensor). Wow, it really is simple! Our photographer will be pleased.

Well, that station just lost one viewer.
