  1. I find it funny how we've been saying for years how Sinclair is a dangerous propaganda machine, but the mainstream media didn't see Sinclair as a threat until now. It's only a threat when it's already too big. People said Microsoft was a risk at becoming a large monopoly in it's the early days when they started getting into agreements with sites to exclusively require Internet Explorer. Nobody cared until the Antitrust suit in 2001.
  2. I would assume it also affects DirecTV customers too?
  3. I hope nobody's watching WBTS on a CRT or OLED TV, because I certainly wouldn't want the "NBC BOSTON" logo being burnt in my screen forever.
  4. I don't think Ansin would want WMFP, or yet alone a third station (if they were legally allowed to), hehe. Even if Ed were to get one of his buddies to shell and LMA/SSA WMFP for him, why would he want another 24 hour Family Feud channel?
  5. Hey, it wouldn't be Cox without a few impulsive firings.
  6. "ACTION" 25 News? HAHAHAHA. Oh my god. That sounds like someone's bad mock-rebranding.
  7. Heh. My Comcast system has SD channel 8 marked as a local public access channel, without any content on it (as it has been like for years), with the channel name being "LOCAL2" and the program name being "Local 2" (sounds very Nexstar-ish i know), which never changes. However, a few weeks ago, I noticed that it changed to "Weather and Traffic Information", and as of last week, it's back to "Local 2". HD Channel 808 is WLVI (their SD channel is 12).
  8. It seems the digital signal of WTMU-LP is now online. I'm in the part of MA just south of Boston that can't get WNEU, even if they tried (y'know, like most boston viewers). I randomly scanned my channels tonight and noticed I now get WNEU's feed and all 2 of it's subchannels. That was quick. http://www.rabbitears.info/market.php?request=station_search&callsign=64996#station
  9. Yeah I saw it too. Not really a fan of the new music, sounds like the original theme is going through puberty. However, I noticed today, they seem to have reverted back to the old theme.
  10. NBCU doesn't seem to be hiring master control/engineering right now, which you would think there would be a ton of if they're planning on starting a new license seperate from WNEU. They also wouldn't need to change the licensee name for a station they already own (WNEU) Interesting...
  11. That "Talkback" segment from WNEP reminds me of TMZ Live, and not in a good way...
  12. Actually, there was a moment last year in Chicago when a comcast rep changed a customer's name to "super b*tch". The customer had a friend who worked for a tv station (presumably WMAQ) who scrapped the story at the last minute because they're owned by Comcast. http://money.cnn.com/2015/02/06/news/companies/comcast-customer-super-bitch/
  13. WCVB investigative reporter Mike Beaudet facing backlash from college students over report about unauthorized late night parties. https://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyle/names/2016/05/05/wcvb-report-after-hours-parties-hits-nerve/SKcWvxImzkG2znwIzewjPI/story.html (surprised Scott Jones at FTVLive hasn't heard about this yet... that's right up his ally!)
  14. While I don't necessarily disagree with Mrs. Bell, you shouldn't post controversial opinions like that if you're a journalist, that's just not professional for that line of work.. period. Don't get me wrong, *some* opinions are fine for talent to publicly post, such as non-controversial topics that aren't newsworthy, like "I don't like Starbucks coffee, it's too bitter".
