Re: Former Flint anchor talks about Asian American hate experience

Interesting. One of the most ignorant efforts I’ve ever heard... trying to have a rational argument with “Biden Girl”.

Re: I don't believe Sinklair

If you don’t believe us that there’s a problem with the lack of diversity in the ranks of management, that we have the market’s lowest pay resulting in high turnover, that there is a hostile w...

Re: Former Flint anchor talks about Asian American hate experience

So that means it’s OK? That’s f’d up reasoning if I ever heard one. Hate is hate. Doesn’t matter who perpetuates it.

But the topic is about Jane using her voice to bring light to the issue and have these conversations with other Asian American families.

Re: WNEM up for sale?

Different News Director at the time. When Schramm was pushed out, Neille was put in charge and it hasn’t been the same. She is lost and has little respect from the news team. Until there’s a change at the top, 25-66 will be a ratings bottom feeder.

Re: WNEM up for sale?

As much as I think 25-66 has the market’s worst management, I feel 5 is the least professional of all the stations. Why they are #1 in ratings is beyond me. Why 5 puts up with the David and Meg show is beyond me. Frank Turner is so far a better than everyone else at 5.

Happy opening day!
