WFAA TRIES TO COVER REDLINING — AND GETS IT TOTALLY WRONG

In November WFAA aired a 9 minute story on redlining in Dallas (it may be viewed in full below).

The report contended that residents of South Dallas cannot get loans because 20% of banks in Dallas County ‘redline’ along I-30. It cited a random selection of small Dallas banks (too small to advertise on WFAA or ABC, the way that Chase or another major bank might) that it saw as culprits.
