Re: Detroit Protests coverage

She is a lousy hard news reporter, and frankly, she isn't even a very good "fluff" story reporter. I provided a detailed example of the latter here many months ago. No argument from me. I was impressed she turned up the plating scandal, but that was as much a slam at the 'investigative' reporters a...

Re: Detroit Protests coverage

Poor Jennifer Wilson on 7 was stuck out at Eastland Mall all morning (they are having the demonstration there tonight). They gave her talking points that everything was peaceful except one or two little things and it was all white suburb people anyway. I think she is good covering the flower festiva...

They transferred her to reporting for the crisis when this started, doing stories for the evening newscasts.

Re: President Schlissel just might’ve caused an uproar

We already know what happens. The suburb of Oak Park (in between Southfield and Ferndale) has a large black and Hasidic population so they blocked much of the early social distancing and kept their football practices running. Two percent of the population have tested positive, 10% of those have died...

Re: Gretchen the Media Queen

I hope that isn't true she opened northern Michigan for a party for her daughter I think that is just a rumor. I'll only believe it if there are photos and it makes headlines. I think it will come down to the Supreme Court Of Michigan to reopen the state the judge who ruled for the governor clearly...

Re: Channel 7 mornings for the non win

Like a lot of you, I have the TV on in the background while I get started on the massive amount of paperwork everyone wants now that everyone with an office job is home. 7's extended morning show was on, I got tied up on something, look up, the religious news and commentary show 700 Club is on. The ...

Re: Gretchen the Media Queen

The dams breaking and the nursing home thing may stick to Gretchen, unless the media can double down and cover for her. Maybe make some claim Trump did it by not wearing a mask or Baron Trump did it or something.

But unless they do a great job, I think her chances at VP just went way down

Cunningham tried to get through a canned story on the shooting of children overnight and did a terrible job stumbling though, again.

Re: Ali Hoxie's Cher impression

I understand budgets and rotating shows and growing new talents. But 7 fired Rachel and Erin for Ann Marie, who was at least as good on air and brought a proven Most Wanted franchise, but then fired Ann Marie for someone who needs another few years skill buffing at a number 60 market and isn't quite...

Re: Channel 7 mornings for the non win

It got worse. The new guy, Darnell Cunningham, looks like Urkel, just tried to show video of the dam breaking. On his laptop. And it buffered, to boot. Amateur hour

Channel 7 mornings for the non win

I had the experience of watching 7's morning news, this morning, May 18. It was really bad. Not the on air employees, the control room and director were terrible. High school a/v morning news bad. They missed a lot of stuff, constant mistakes. Does no one care? Management took off for Florida and ev...

Re: New weather person on 2

Just watched him. Not a full on lisp, but an odd vocal on a lot of s and th sounds. Lots of blinking. Little rushed on pacing and good gestures.

Unless they really needed a black weather person for marketing, he is not an improvement on that they already had.
