  1. i feel bad for situations like these. drama can hit anybody at any second and the fallout is immense and hard to deal with. i feel for sanewsguy but feel like he could of done more to show his remorse and I feel like the staff could of involved everyone in this discussion. if they did, none of this drama would be happening right now.
  2. WJZ Jerry Turner clean ID from 1987 https://youtu.be/ylUdyImZCDA
  3. I have a feeling they did Wendy Williams' talk show dirty.
  4. this is a joke to those who valued their integrity over the cold hard cash.
  5. I get that not everybody likes what Tegna is doing but I doubt Standard General is going to do a good job at "bringing journalism back" or "making the stations great again", I don't have inside info but I'm on the side of "this is a bad deal" and that Bryon Allen should of gotten these stations. It would of been much more of a story than another hedge fund taking TV stations down a notch. How is WLNE doing anyways?
  6. why did they turn down Bryon Allen, that's what I want to know.
  7. I have and it works for it's audience, CNN may have needed change but not one that damaged it's credibility. in terms of modern news people, I'm looking for someone like Lester Holt not Jeff Zucker.
  8. Zucker is a money orientated, overrated, hypocritical and undisciplined "executive" who failed at every job he was given. Anybody remember when NBC was last place? it was Jeff Zucker's fault. nuff said.
  9. Jeff Zucker going to be facing one of the most torturous parts of his life.
  10. the ABC logo should be in two colors only. black and white
  11. do you think NewsNet is going to replace the news departments in every station?
  12. it's not going to collapse at all. there's more of a chance of cable collapsing entirely than streaming. cable is redundant anyways.
  13. well at least it's a viable option compared to starting a news operation from scratch.
  14. I swear the mishandling of Tribune could be it's own documentary. They had no idea what to do with WGN America (when compared to TBS which was a superstation in itself) and the only saving grace they had was that they had an image and namesake stations like WPIX/KTLA/WGN and the like. Ever since Nexstar bought Tribune, it's like Tribune's management has been poisoning the company. To me, Nexstar today feels like what would of happened had Sinclair successfully attempted to acquire Tribune, a total trainwreck that claims to care about locals but only cares about the bottom line. I wouldn't be surprised if many Nexstar stations go right wing in the future if Nexstar's investment in a right-wing NewsNation is successful. Nexstar is essentially Sinclair but better handled in my eyes now. It's not NewsNation related but I posted this because Nexstar's handling of NewsNation could be the future of Nexstar as a whole.
  15. title may not be great, thread might get closed but looking at the number of people who left and the number of controversies that NewsNation is going through. I feel like it's worthy of a thread to discuss in detail the turmoil that's going on at NewsNation. It's amazing how in a few months, NewsNation lost a majority of it's staff and is going far to the right in defiance of it's original mission (which didn't get ratings but they could of tried harder). I'd be surprised if the network didn't shut down at the end of the year, gained a sizable audience and managed to make something for itself in the cable news world.
  16. O&O gravitas doesn't matter anymore. Nobody's buying new stations except for FOX and that's mainly to get more money out of areas where they have NFL rights. If anything, O&O's might be sold off if they're not viable anymore but I don't see Disney selling ABC or FOX selling to Disney and I'll be surprised if they do. Also any talk of WPLG as an ABC O&O is simply pure fantasy. Just because NBC & CBS own O&O's in Miami does not mean that it's an O&O market just like Boston isn't an O&O market. Think of it from a business perspective, not from a "fantasy TV" perspective.
  17. Instead of doing that, we should just ban ABC selling speculation in this thread until there are actual rumors suggesting that ABC might be sold.
  18. I can safely say this with 100% certainty. Nothing radical is going to happen to Disney.
  19. yet as long as the owner keeps putting cash into the furnace, NewsNet will continue for the foreseeable future. I don't understand why people don't just give up or think about it before going into this business.
  20. damn... can't believe they couldn't get the symbols right... this really looks like some guy wanting to break into the real news business but doesn't understand that real news is not about sets or anchors but about content and reporting. Newsey > NewsNet.
  21. NewsNet is a joke, how does it stay on the air anyway?
  22. @Eat News no offense but when Milo appears in a selfie with the news anchor for a far-right news diginet, that's generally a bad sign.
