I think the news will air it no matter what. For the past couple months I have been HOPING he didn't reimburse me because I thought the news report would have been pointless. But IMO, if he reimbursed me today, the story still deserves to be aired because of his actions and total disregard for my property. It'* been 4 months since this started and he blew me off and took no action with the BBB complaint (not that the news station is going to mention that).
With that being said, I still hope he doesn't reimburse me yet!
