Re: The Strange David and Goliath Saga of Radio Frequencies

This wouldn't be THAT big of a deal were it not for the fact that this is the second time in less than a decade that wireless mics have been kicked out of a frequency band. When I worked for my local school district, I installed wireless mics in the elementary school classrooms at about $200 each. I...

Re: 2018 Detroit Lions

The Vikings are actually slight favorites to win the division. My predictions are:

Minnesota 10-6
Detroit 9-7
Green Bay 7-9
Chicago 5-11

Re: Hundreds of newspapers unite to attack Trump

You guys should try and learn from your mistakes, lol. Thankfully that will never happen. There's a reason republicans control literally everything. Dems could EASILY take back the House in 2018 with a sizable majority and maybe even the Senate if they had a coherent message. Instead what they have...

Re: Hundreds of newspapers unite to attack Trump

Gimme a break. Your hatred of the President goes far, far beyond any of the alleged "lies" he's told. As to the 5th Avenue quote - it's called hyperbole. Look it up. Now I will acknowledge that Trump does indeed have a cult-like following among a percentage of the population - people with whom Trump...

Re: Missouri Cans right to work

You can try to negotiate all that on your own or something. Not really. Many governmental entities refuse to negotiate with non-union individuals for contracts separate from the union contract. And that is the real problem with right-to-work. I think it COULD work if non-union members could negotia...

I don't think anybody's "upset" by this. Also, the idea that the Trump presidency in any way, shape, or form threatens the existence of a free press is poppycock. btw - remember how some people in here got their panties in a wad when Sinclair made the TV stations it owns all read from the same scrip...

WIOG at 86,000 watts

Just something I've wondered before - I see that 102.5 WIOG broadcasts with 86,000 watts. Is this an unusual power output? It is the only FM station I've seen that broadcasts more than 50k watts but less than 100k. Is there a reason they don't broadcast at a full 100k?

How well does WKQI 95.5 get into Flint? That 1.7 is quite impressive considering that it is nearly half of WRCL's numbers and over a third of WWCK's.

Re: Gretchen Whitmer

I have a simple solution to this that I think both sides could agree with. Keep the electoral college. Keep the 538 electors. But instead of winner-take-all for each state (yes I know there's already a few exceptions), assign electoral votes as follows: Each state gets 2 electoral votes (winner-tak...

Re: Gretchen Whitmer

Something to think about, in the future 17 states can decide who will run or ruin the country. The Electoral College is a thing of the past. IF CA had the same rate of electoral votes that Wyoming has (1 per 570k voters, 3 total) then CA would have 217 votes. Since there is a limit to the total and...

Re: Shri! What happened?

Based purely on his commercials, Shri seemed like a likable guy.

Given his very poor showing, just goes to show that advertising on TV isn't worth what it was even 10 or 15 years ago.
