Re: Gubernatorial debate feedback (Oct. 12)

The Gubernatorial debate just concluded moments. Barring a last second programming change, very few in Metro Detroit got to watch it. In my case, I choose to stream it from woodtv.com (the NBC affiliate in Grand Rapids, who hosted the debate). Overall, I thought Rick Albin of WOOD-TV did a solid jo...

Re: WTF - no Detroit TV broadcast of tonight's gubernatorial debate?!?!

WDIV, WXYZ, WJBK, and all Detroit TV stations should be embarrassed. This November's gubernatorial election is a very important one, and yet not a single one of Detroit's TV stations feels a need to air tonight's debate from Grand Rapids? Un-fucking-believable. I guess I'll be using Chromecast to t...

Re: Oh Noes! Taylor Swift Weaponized By Democrats

If he was viewed as just being a total whackjob that nobody listened to, then why bother covering him at all? (and I'm talking about leading up to his oval office visit - obviously yesterday was newsworthy). Why was it necessary for the press to go after him relentlessly? Usually when someone says ...

Re: Election Day predictions thread

There seems to be very conflicting data out there on exactly who benefited politically from the Kavanaugh saga. I'm curious where you're finding the enthusiasm gap to be +10 democrat? Per an NPR poll last week, that number was +10 in July, but has since fallen to a mere +2 https://www.npr.org/2018/...

Re: Oh Noes! Taylor Swift Weaponized By Democrats

I have listened to a few conservative commentators today try to spell out what they thought Kanye was trying to say as if Kanye were in fact more articulate than he really was. He was far from articulate, and you'll get no argument from me on that point. That said, Jim Brown is hardly an A-list or ...
