Janine Reyes of WFTV finds her sweeps week story at a yard sale. I bet her brain was bought there, too.

Any time a reporter makes a story this asinine, the Shiitake Awards will make room for her. So the big story of the day is shelter that houses registered citizens sells toys at a yard sale (among other things). So what's the big deal, especially if none of the shelter residents interact with the yard-salers. And kids don't go to yard sales alone, parents go. 

Reyes made problems for a shelter doing good work for the community. Why? For ratings, obviously. Next week, Reyes could run a story on sex offenders using public bathrooms. She can get exclusive footage of me dropping a valigator all over this Shiitake-Worthy story.

It isn't enough she ran this story, but her Twitter page suggests she's hoping some residents are violated.

[By the way, it seems "The Dirty" has an article about Janine Reyes.]

Apopka sex offender facility sells children’s toys at yard sale

APOPKA, Fla. — An Apopka complex that houses nearly 30 sex offenders has been having yard sales for years, but some of the items are tailored to children, worrying neighbors.
Channel 9’s Janine Reyes found stuffed animals, baby toys, Legos and other items for children during a yard sale Saturday at The Lighthouse Mission.
Reyes found out the yard sale will be the last at the facility for a while, due to a violation of city code that allows yard sales only twice a year.
“It doesn’t say anywhere you’re entering a premise where there (are) 26 registered sex offenders,” Reyes said.  “Why should it? I don’t have it in front of my house that I’m on disability,” said Gloria Hoffpauir, who helps run The Lighthouse Mission with her mother.
Hoffpauir said the sex offenders who live in the complex are not identified as predators, but some residents said the complex should prominently display who lives there during a yard sale.
Hoffpauir said the sex offenders do not sell the items, but they do help set up the sale and move items.
“So they could be out here while there are children here?” Reyes asked Hoffpauir.
“Kids don’t come up here by themselves. Their parents are with them,” Hoffpauir said.
Nearby residents said it’s not right.
“I just don’t want kids to be around violators,” said Stephen Vasquez.
