Re: Mid-Michigan Now

I'll be damned. So the branding is going to be used both for their digital assets *and* for the on-air newscasts. I do not like the move as far as the on-air product goes. All it will do is create viewer confusion. Plus, it sounds extremely gimmicky. Which is hilarious because after the NBC25 morni...

Re: WNIC Switches to X-mas

Seems kinda late. Wal-Fart had an entire section of egg nog set up a month ago, with expiration dates of Nov 1st, and the it was clearly being shopped. Maybe people just like egg nog? Overall, I still am puzzled about how "Christmas spirit" is natural on November 1st, but at the stroke of midnight o...

Re: NBC25/FOX66 down the tubes

Can we just tie all these topics that are all basically about the same damn thing into one? Do we need a new one every couple of weeks? When I saw the topic on the main page, I instantly knew who the author was and what the basic gist of it would be. Why more threads? Btw, unless you are God, you ar...

It would be fine if it was done well.
I agree. Unfortunately, they want to do more while spending less. The first thing to go down the drain is quality, and I think we see it in pretty much every aspect of local news.

Re: News Fail

All the way back, I think.. If Brink Chetley reported it, you either believed it or you didn't. There wasn't any other choice for validating. So we eliminate the internet lol I think if we were to just let social media do its thing, and take the time to gather the news and decipher correct/incorrec...

Re: Cops kill innocent, unarmed man after stalking him in fast food restaurant bathroom

That's pretty serious name calling. I've so far avoided stooping to that with you. I hope you'll think about what you're doing and avoid accusing the users of this board of being criminals. It isn't possible to delete a post after someone has replied to it. But if you decide you want to delete that...

Re: News Fail

I agree with you, orgasmman95, in that viewers want the story out quickly, but they also want it accurately. Both should be considered. Agreed. But if you hear about a story, and need/want to get it out in say 2 minutes, that isn't much time to truly be accurate - How far back would we have to go i...

I suppose if you aren't a "Nielsen Household," it doesn't really matter if you boycott or not.
