Re: News Nation is a Joke

If I need to explain it to you, you might be working too hard to justify why the skit might tarnish NewsNation’s “sterling” image

Re: WNEM News Director and Masters

After returning from the Master’s and posting photos of her and her husband day drinking while using her media credentials… her next big to do was spend time at the Michigan Journalism Hall of Fame, inducting Carolyn Cliffor...

News Nation is a Joke

You know it’s bad when Saturday Night Live equates your national “news” network with a Beavis and Butthead skit… https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2024/4/14/news-nation-get-the-snl-treatment Nexstar is throwing a lot of money and has very little to show for it.

WLNS Unionization Next?

More Nexstar stations are unionizing as a way to fight back against Uncle Perry and his penchant for running stations on the cheap. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2024/4/15/another-nexstar-station-votes-to-unionize WLNS has long resisted any unionization effort, but there are many people who are ...

Re: WOOD promoting Carlson & Cuomo

I thought only Sinclair hired the worst people… now I see Chris Hansen on News Nation.

Whoever is running this trainwreck of a “news” operation is in a race toward irrelevancy.

Re: FOX 47 revolving door

Blind squirrels can find nuts. Doesn’t make them a real news organization, Steve. Fox 47 has always been dead last in the market, they remain in dead last place today, they will stay in dead last place in the future — as long as Scripps and its horrible Scrippscast remains in place. Gary, Matt, Neil...

Persons of color need not apply to be a News manager in Sinclair. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2024/4/15/notice-anything This came from a post from the Regional News Director who was the “brains” behind WEYI’s “Mid-Michigan Not NOW!” rebranding and mass layoffs.

Re: WJMN TV to be sold to Morgan Murphy by Nexstar

Sinclair only owns WSMH. They are operating WEYI through a shared services agreement with Armstrong Williams’ Howard Stirk Holdings. They run WBSF through Cunningham. All sidecar deals to avoid running into FCC ownership cap issues. However, the FCC has been cracking down these end arounds with laws...

And you can expect GM Ken to continue to back her… even as everyone not in Jayne’s inner circle flees. Ken is as big of a problem as Jayne.

Re: Sinclair Generative Artificial Intelligence

Or… hire more journalists and pay them a living wage.

AI rewrites don’t solve the problem of not having real coverage of local issues.

Re: WJMN TV to be sold to Morgan Murphy by Nexstar

How is Nexstar doing this? I thought they were at the ownership cap — and the FCC was making them divest stations like WPIX in New York City?
