The Travis Family has dominated, controlled and manipulated local media since the first telegraph line was installed in LaCucaracha. The only exception has been the bastion of fine journalism known as the Texas Cockroach (TCR) newspaper, which outshines the Travis Family’s radio station, cable television operation, religious pamphlet printer and LISD News Service.
Travis Cable’s exclusive, tyrannical control over Public Access Channel LCTV3's most popular show, Hutton for Your Home, has finally come to an end. Local celebrity and home builder, Roy Hutton, has been using the free equipment from LCTV3 to tape his helpful hints for general contractors for over 20 years. Travis Cable contractually restricted Hutton from airing any episodes on YouTube or the Texas Cockroach, or he would be required to purchase his own equipment and airtime.
After the Travis Family’s worthless, lazy heirs sold Travis Cable to mega corporation, Cabletown, the new management dropped the vindictive requirement from its public access channel productions. Off the record, Cabletown executives referred to the Travis Family as “a bunch of inbred hound dog folks,” incapable of running a media company.
Always alert, TCR jumped on the opportunity to feature “Hutton for Your Home,” episodes on YouTube and the TCR website. TCR Co-Publisher, Larry Appleby, said he was glad to welcome Roy Hutton and his hit show into the TCR family. “Honestly, Roy’s always been like family. We all played ball together back in high school, and shoot rats every Thursday night. It’s just nice to know we no longer have to fear one of those despicable Travis bastards sticking their nose in our business anymore.”
Look for new episodes of “Hutton for Your Home,” erratically appearing on this site.
Disclosure: The Texas Cockroach, its subsidiaries, affiliates and parent company acknowledges the Travis Family is an evil empire poisoning the minds of LaCucaracha residents and young children. Travis Cable Radio (TCR) is in no way affiliated with the Texas Cockroach (TCR). We had the acronym first.
