    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    You don't need NY, LA or CHI to operate a TV network anymore. You don't need "flagships" or cherries on sundaes. You can place a TV network just about anywhere in the USA now given you stay close to a decent communications hub.

    Out & About

    Pour some sweet tea and warm up the Jacuzzi, because Chris Hanson is in town... But the only thing young and bouncy are his checks. https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/to-catch-a-predator-host-chris-hansen-charged-with-bouncing-checks This reminds me of a hooker i knew from Russia... She wouldn't take Czech's either...

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Like I have been saying all along...(my scott jones moment if I may...) The taxes in NY gobble up much of the incentive to do business there. The politics of business also suck in NY for broadcaster. If they really wanted NYC they could find a million ways to make it happen. In 2019 it's simple to establish yourself worldwide without having the expense of NYC.

    The Suicide of CNN...Good Bye Old Friend.

    You are darn right (bad pun) KUSI is standing behind the story...and you can be 100% sure they are behind the author of the story. Mike McKinnon III https://www.kusi.com/author/mdmckinnon/ I believe KUSI is "calling out" CNN on behalf of some some angry affiliates. Mike McKinnon III fronted that story for a reason and it's a shot across the bow directed at NewsSource. Or maybe Mike Sr. doesn't care if the kid takes the hit if this all goes sideways.

    The Suicide of CNN...Good Bye Old Friend.

    I'm pretty sure there is an email trail on this...but since KUSI is a CNN subscriber releasing or leaking those emails may just create a whole different (internal) sh*tstorm for both CNN and KUSI. KUSI is not the only newssource affiliate to encounter problems with the national desk and NewsSource. The degradation of established journalistic standards at CNN have contributed to a marked "change of relationships" with many affiliate's, and a few station groups . Does anyone really think Sinclair wants to keep up a relationship with CNN? Do they even have a relationship with CNN anymore? Can we all say "subscriber fees"? Some affiliates pay more than others, and some don't pay at all. The hard left dive that CNN has taken is starting to annoy some affiliates...PAID subscribers who signed-on to CNN when they were a reputable newsgathering operation. It looks like (to this shark) that KUSI has decided to bring that internal rift to the surface. KUSI might have pulled a "gotcha" on CNN, just to expose this issue. We have a few folks here that deal with the CNN desk(s) on a daily basis...and those folks sit in on the conference calls, so it's no secret this has been bubbling under the surface for quit awhile with more than one station in the CNN affiliate system. There are contracts... ...and those contracts will need to be renewed...or maybe not.
  8. Well for all of you who were playing our game (Find KNBC's Storm Buggy) we are going to revel the super top secret location of the"NBC Storm Buggy 2019 Ronnie and Nancy Sleepover"... And the location is........ Yes folks...Storm Buggy is sitting in the parking lot of the Reagan Museum in Simi Valley, about 40 miles north of Los Angeles. Ronnie and Nancy are buried here! I bet it will be there all weekend. It's a pretty safe location and it's up on a nice hill. They have food and nice restrooms...and shore power if needed. So is SB sitting up there unattended? I don't know. But I DO know that if you drove up there today or tomorrow that you could probably get a pretty up close look at the buggy for free. There may also be somebody babysitting Storm Buggy who JUST MIGHT show you the inside of storm Buggy if you ask nicely,or just tell them "Dennis" on the KNBC Mt. Wilson site said it was "ok". The people and security at the library are pretty chill...so I don't think they will mind a few TVNT fanboys gawking at the Storm Buggy. Have Fun!

    ABC going after NFL Sunday package?

    This site? " News: No "what-if" or hypothetical games. From now on, anyone who starts one will be banned. " Lol...they must have seen us coming... "First came the Americans from TVNT...then they brought the Speculatron 9000 with them...Oh the humanity!"
  10. Where is KNBC's Storm Buggy tonight??? Here is a little geo-mystery. I was toggling thru the NBC wx radar's around Socal when I noticed something very strange...it may even be part of a right-wing conspiracy... Is Storm Buggy having a sleep-over with Ronnie and Nancy? Closer... Is it really parked where I think it's parked?

    Megyn Kelly Today Officially Cancelled

    It's the Friday Night News Dump... Megyn Kelly has left the building... My bet is she is co-hosting on The View soon. Megyn Kelly is officially done with NBC after months of negotiating, the network announced on Friday night.“The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC,” said an NBC News statement. Terms were not immediately disclosed.Kelly was roughly halfway through a three-year deal for a whopping total of $69 million. It is not immediately clear if she will receive all of the remaining money. This next paragraph really brings it all out of the closet... Terms of a non-disparagement agreement were critical for both sides, as Kelly has hinted that she knows about some of the skeletons in NBC’s closet. Holy crap! This woman was making herself comfy in closets everywhere! Lesson: if you invite Ms. Kelly to your house, I may suggest you lock your closet doors.

    The Suicide of CNN...Good Bye Old Friend.

    And to be fair... KUSI subscribes to CNN. Every other CNN affil in San Diego was asked first and refused....and CNN was welcome to send a crew to the border to ask..."are you for or against the wall"? CNN didn't get the response they wanted so they were welcome to ask all the other local CNN newsource clients in San Diego or Imperial county. Notice we didn't hear if CNN contacted KYMA with the same request. And refusal to follow even the basic guidelines established for and by real professional journalist...such as the use of ANY type of style book including the CNN guidelines is an outrage. So what if CNN ditched AP as a source, does that make it OK to ditch the established guidelines taught in J schools across the country...the same guidelines you are expected to follow when a VJ or a reporter is hired by CNN? AP style books used to be included in your "CNN VJ welcome Package"...and you were required to SIGN and date that you read that book which included the AP style guide as part of that packet. Newsflash! KUSI also dropped all the wire services down to the absolute minimum needed to feed the KUSI website. KUSI also dropped CNS (City News Service) so now KUSI has the most organic news gathering in town. Don't tell people in San Diego that KUSI is "right slanted" because people here would just say.... "That's news to us". The KUSI newsroom is full of people of color, and LGBT folks who are very out and proud (and on the air daily)...so all those cards are out of play. Finally....before I put this thread to bed. CNN could have sent a crew to the border to ask people in this area how they felt...but the CNN National Desk is well aware that that would have been a huge waste of money. It was easier just to call the "locals" and see if they would help CNN with it's twisted idea of journalism. I guess FNC has Enrique Morones locked into an exclusive deal ,because CNN would die to get him on the air with the anti-wall opinion...money talks CNN. I can promise you there are plenty of copies of the AP and Reuters stylebooks in the FOX brainrooms and newsrooms. CNN is dead. When they re-adopt established journalistic guidelines they might be considered a real news organization once again. Source fairly...and always have more than one source...basic stuff. Any CNN alums want to chime in here?

    Retransmission Consent squabbles

    They may have taken away booze, drugs and women (the floozie types) from the newsrooms of America... But they will NEVER take away our wagering! PS Rob.. I lost my shirt on the shutdown, but I got a real good Scotus tip on the line with "Little Jimmy" in Laguna Beach. ...Iet me know if you want in on the action. ( smiley winky face)

    The Suicide of CNN...Good Bye Old Friend.

    Nobody has accused KUSI of any bias...and CNN is not denying this happened. This is just another example of the Suicide of CNN....a once proud network that has even ditched the use and guidelines of the "AP Style Book"..." If anyone here is actually interested in how to be an TRUE unbiased reporter, you may want to get an extra copy and send it to the CNN National Desk. https://www.amazon.com/Associated-Press-Stylebook-2019-Briefing/dp/1541699890?SubscriptionId=AKIAIM5JVG3GDQSEKGFA&tag=legaloutlet.com-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=1541699890
