Fox is the PR firm for Trump. Russia has TASS, we have FOX.

Lara Logan -- the former 60 Minutes correspondent. Why wouldn't they promote her story? Better than the David Custer "look at me" feature of the week.

With HL101's obsession with his former employer 25-66, he must have missed 12's recent sweeps stories from its national investigative team.

If you don't like the topic of the story, then just don't watch the newscast. If you think you can do better, apply to be the station's news director. Chances are that TV5 and 25-66 won't make the same mistake to rehire HL101.

When I think HL101 can't go any lower, then he hurls a homophobic remark on the Buzzboard. Not sure what it will take for the moderator to put HL101 in the well-deserved Douchebag Repository, but his latest post is the 493,761 example about why he deserves to be banned from this forum.

For the record, Custer's cooking endeavor was called The Kid Gourmet.

If you are really concerned about Custer's cooking, I'm sure you can reach him by emailing david.custer@wnem.com.

Also for the record, the focus of this post was sweeps and promoting national content. Please stay on topic.

HL101: so you do know what David's cooking segment was called... and you still went for the homophobic comment. Very telling... and still off topic.

Or in my case, don't watch TV news at all. All my news the last few years came from the paper.

Remember when sweeps was a time for LOCAL reporters to actually do work, get off their rear ends, come up with a compelling idea, and execute it?

THOSE DAYS ARE GONE!

Fox66 is promoting national corespondent Lara Logan covering the U.S.-Mexico border tonight.

Yep. That’s Monday’s sweeps story. A. National. Package.

Remember when national packages were used to fill in the gaps of a newscast? Not anymore! We’re promoting them as the best stuff we’ve got tonight!

How does this impact Mid-Michigan? What’s the “today peg”? Why should anyone care? Doesn’t matter. Trump’s network marches on.
Must have worked. You watched.

No, I didn’t. I heard the promotion. I did not watch it. Why do you make things up?
How do we know you only heard the promotion? Maybe you are making things up. I don't trust a word you say.

I don't care whom you trust.
I don't care whether you care or not. You're the psychopath. That's not calling you a "name," by the way. That's describing your behavior.

You're a psychopath because of the asinine things you say, and how over the past few years have contradicted yourself over and over, while not acknowledging your own inconsistencies and insisting you are always correct.

Got it, Spanky?

Your comparison of Collette Boyd and Kristin Moore was completely crazy based on the criteria you presented for your defense of Colette. That's one of many, but that's all you get, Spanky.

You wigged out about Collette being called "Sam's Co-Anchor" and then you referred to Kristin as Karen Weaver's "lackey." You just go on and keep drinking your own Kool-Aid, Spanky. The rest of us will just watch you continually make a damn fool of yourself.
