I do want to pay our local news media outlets a compliment!

Post by MWmetalhead » Sat Jun 01, 2019 5:47 pm

For the first time in many years, I did not see any of our local news media outlets go head-over-heels orgasmic over the Mackinac policy conference.

WWJ's morning team stayed in town.

I don't believe any of the Big 3 on the TV side of things (2, 4, 7) sent any A-list anchors up there for extended coverage.

Reporting was balanced and devoid of the hype we've seen in years past.

So, for that - I just wanted to say, "Thanks!"

MW, Devin Scillian was on the island and turned in his usual solid effort on the nightly newscasts and today's "Flashpoint."

I'm fine with the conference being used as fodder for the Sunday shows. That's where it largely belongs.

I must not have listened the day they were broadcasting live from the island. Their coverage seemed tempered compared to usual, which I was happy to see.

I walked by Jordan and Jasina at the WWJ desk on Wednesday morning. I was listening to the station (gangbusters signal) on my little AM/FM Walkman that morning and for a bit during the previous evening.

I'd like to pay MWMetalhead a compliment for tossing "LovinLife101" in the douche bag repository, but no such luck.
