Re: Bill Harris retiring

I didn’t want to respond to this thread any more but since I had an actual answer to the specific question I thought I would volunteer as tribute to possibly put an end to this.

Although I doubt the odds will be in my favor.

Re: How much of the news show is scripted?

It’s all scripted. Even down the to fake laughter after a not funny comment. Even down to the extemporaneously-sounding question an anchor asks a reporter in the field at the end of the report. All fake, scripted, and predetermined. But everyone falls for it. Oh, and pro wrestling is predetermined ...

O M G.....87 Posts and this topic is still alive. Should have been dead 60 posts ago. When someone has been in the game for several decades and never accomplished anything, there’s a lot to critique. For you, obviously. I haven't seen may other "critiques" (which you would probably describe as bull...

Re: SCREW YOU! I’M KEEPING YOU SAFE!!!

Broadcast TV is a free service that is there to entertain when necessary and to inform when necessary. Sometimes one is more necessary than the other... like in the case of dangerous weather conditions. That being said... I felt this meteorologist was way over the top and out of line. He should have...

Re: Bill Harris retiring

Juxtapose (look it up) Bill Harris’ career with someone like Jim Kiertzner. Jim digs every day, while Bill reads a TelePrompTer. Jim makes new connections and works existing sources, while Bill cheers on the Boston teams. Jim tracks down corrupt public officials and holds them accountable, while Bi...

Honestly, we all know who this LL person is. Connect the dots. How'd that "Weather Garden", and "Buck Pole" work out for ya??

It still cracks me up that people think you’re Mark.

Re: Bill Harris retiring

Prior to this thread being posted, he has been referred to as “dean of (mid-)Michigan anchors” only twice online, possibly in print too. First, in his bio, which he authored. And second, in his retirement announcement, which it’s safe to assume he authored as well. So who came up with the title? Si...

Re: Bill Harris retiring

Bill is an amazing person. He treats everyone around him with respect. He always gives his best and I feel like I’m better at my job because of the time that I spent working with him. He deserves every award, word of praise, accolade, etc. that comes his way. His retirement is well earned and I hope...

Re: Thanks for working here! Here’s a grilled cheese sandwich!

Herm is correct, and DAC is correct. Nobody knows who I am and nobody should care. Speculation only hurts the innocent. PRESUMED innocent I don’t know who you are, although it is totally possible that we know each other. I worked closely with Mark for several years and I know you’re not him... that...
