TULSA, Oklahoma -

Editor's note:  As we prepare to move into a new building, we're taking inventory of everything in our current one, which includes thousands of hours of old videotape.  We're sharing some of what we find here on NewsOn6.com.

TV stations and newspapers compete every day for your attention. And while we take our jobs seriously, the competition is usually pretty friendly.

So every now and then, we like to poke a little fun, like reporter Joe Taylor did at the Tulsa World.

He noticed that the paper started blacking out the mic flags that are used to identify television stations. Taylor decided to take a look at what TV news could do to black out the competition.

Here's his story from the video vault - from 1984.
