“It’s sweeps! Let’s promote a national package!”

Post by lovinlife101 » Mon May 06, 2019 12:13 pm

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.

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.

They wouldn’t promote a Custer story because he works for the competition! Try to pay attention, Skippy!

12 is not Fox66 either.

Fox news IS a Liberal News Agency, just not as extreme as CNN or MSNBC. I call BULL.
You’re only 100% wrong this time!
LMAO, I am 100% correct. Just look at the Daily Dose of Trump Bashing by all three Liberal Puppets.

“All three Liberal Puppets”?

:rollin :rollin :rollin

Is that all you think is available?

Can you get only three channels, grandpa? It’s not the 1950’s and screaming at the kids to get off your lawn won’t get you anywhere.

You obviously didn’t read the Vox report. You need the internet for that.

I'll leave my head planted firmly where I consensually want.

Do you think Trump is a liberal? Why do you think he promotes Fox News over the rest?

Speaking of Custer, whatever happened to his cooking endeavor? I think it was called Gay Gourmet.

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 [email protected].

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

Even though Fox News is Left of Center, it is more fair than the extreme News Hacks like CNN & MSNBC. ---- DUH

BTW....You can keep your head right where it is. ROTF...LMAO.

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.
