  1. Sorry, I had to get my piece in especially after hearing about @CalItalian2's rant. Enough is enough.
  2. Okay. I tried to mind my own business in retirement, but here we go: You sir, have been without a doubt an negative nancy when it comes to NewsNation. I get it, you miss Matlock, In the Heat of the Night etc. Well guess what, Uncle Perry doesn't give a crap if you miss those shows. NewsNation, despite it being a failure is still making profit for Nexstar. So do us a favor, get out of this forum or we will have @Weetersor others throw you out. Capice!
  3. Not in the sense of return to form of watching television (sorry, that ship had sailed), but in the sense of more variety in their programming or it can end up like AM NewsTalk Radio.
  4. I know it sucks for viewers who just want to be entertained (nee watch DVDs and BluRays), but time moves forward instead of backwards. Maybe in the next decade we could see a return to form.
  5. So in other words, it doesn't matter if a syndicated rerun (in which you can watch on streaming and physical media (re: DVD/BluRay) would bring higher viewers or say a syndicated talk show, in which the station has to slice it's revenue pie, with local programming (namely news), they get all the revenue and reinvest it in other properties like (newsvans, helicopters, drones), just to name a few.
  6. I would like to learn more about the decisions in terms of profit margins in buying syndicated programming versus producing an expanded newscast.
  7. @CalItalian2You are now free to celebrate and gloat at NN's ratings!
  8. Knowing CBS, they'd pull a trick on our sleeves...
  9. I'm sure you can buy a champagne and celebrate the failure that is NewsNation. You're free to gloat.
  10. I had my share of copyright infringment over the years, but this feels different. So, I had to remove a few videos from my secondary YouTube page in order to keep it running.
  11. Big fan of your channel by the way. This alone is one of the reasons why I've been adding sketches and comedy bits to the commercial blocks. (Yes, we're talking about the Off-Air Circus Troupe i.e. the mimes, etc.)
  12. The lawsuit was historic simply due to the fact that User Generated Content and Safe Harbor provisions constitute for fair use. So if the management at WPLG Inc., (BH Media) feels that the value of an old newscast would diminish the value of its current newscasts (or probabbly some of the former anchors don't want their likenesses there), then that's another story for another time. Overall, this is a setback, but WPLG is within their rights.
  13. Actually, WPLG's doing well in the ratings and with the recent deal with WSFL, it's not much of a loss. But as far as archival footage is concerned, there are far more things they should be worried about instead of cracking down on YouTubers, see Viacom v. Google.
  14. By the way, if anyone is interested in supporting Sloan's situation, use the hashtag #FreetheAirchive so YouTube could know.
  15. Okay, @CalItalian2you can post and say "I told you so."
  16. Tell him this: Blue Bloods is on streaming, Movies: Streaming, sitcom reruns, dramas, etc. Streaming and or physical (DVDs/BluRay). Change is hard, but its an adjustment.
  17. Let me ask again, who hurt you and why do you want to see WGNa/NewsNation fail so badly.
  18. WGNa wasn't salvageable to begin with. Did you miss reruns of Blue Bloods, In the Heat of the Night or movies? If so, just say it. But you don't have to be pissed off too much. @CalItalian2, who hurt you?
  19. I saw this via Henry Jesssel's TVNewsCheck, and we have a situation that no one seems to talk about, expediency bias among others. https://www.rhetorica.net/bias The point is this: NewsNation in it's first week has a long way to go, if they cut out the "balance not bias" mantra, and just bring the news, you'll be fine, otherwise you'll have to reach John Q. Public that don't care for "generic" local news.
  20. I get it, NewsNation isn't your cup of tea, but I don't think reruns of Blue Bloods is coming back anytime soon. So, yeah. Sorry dude. And also selling the network to a WarnerMedia or some other company isn't going to make things better either.
  21. Maybe....I supposed that would work given that most syndicated talk shows are relegated to FOX/CW/MNT stations, but unless some GM wanted to expand morning news...that's a possibility.....
  22. The WGHP theme was "Hospital Shootout" from the Truck Turner soundtrack.
  23. If you think that's crazy, WPLG's logo was supposed to look like a sunrise.
