  1. A lot of it I think is going to depend upon the election as well because by the time we get through with all of the approval process we may have a much different FCC and trust me, if the Dems get back control there will be scrutiny on this deal for sure especially knowing how strict the Dems were about sharing agreements (that's how Hearst couldn't continue operating WJCL and WTGS together when they bought 22 during the Wheeler era. To be honest, I think Gray and SagamoreHill picked the wrong time to even be thinking about doing anything not named News Share Agreement.
  2. Pretty bad yes, but @ScottJ does have a good point. They don't want to make any more statements than what they're required to do unless Law Enforcement asks KUSA to speak on the record and at that point they don't have much of a choice.
  3. With all of the internet and streaming options available it's just simply incomprehensible how that here we are in 2020 leagues such as the NFL and DirecTV (a satelitte operator) can overrule a DMA over which games they can and can't air. It just doesn't make any sense to me. That needs to brought up by the networks when they're negotiating the upcoming new TV contract.
  4. DMA37Dude also made this explaination in the description of his video (and this might hold the key in explaining why all of the former Tribune stations regardless of who ultimately bought them) are switching out the Creative West pkg And not only that but all of the former Tribune stations (including KCPQ) are being forced to train its staff how to use and install the new systems regardless of owner. That explains why other former Tribune stations are also switching pkgs.
  5. I'd say blame it on the people in charge of the Raycom stations, they'd rather be lazy than get quality programming.
  6. Any new ones for the rest of the Tribune chain that are still on the older Creative West pkg (such as KFOR and others)?
  7. Any insight into what the WGN graphics could look like? Honestly the WGN graphics part of the discussion could be split into its own thread tbh.
  8. That's the question I'm sure the Denver City Attorney's are going to be asking KUSA about and not only that they should also be asking why Plinterton even had a contract with that vendor knowing that individual wasn't licensed. In any case there's more questions than there are answers at this point (which is to be expected)
  9. No ya won't! Well let's face it, we all have our bias even I do. The fact is nobody is "unbiased".
  10. Actually the Fox News one carries a bit more weight than the KUSA one because they're not implicated by this than what KUSA itself is.
  11. Yep, there is evidence of it seen here from this interview last night on Tucker Carlson Tonight https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNkeZOjAnFw It starts about 26 almost 27 minutes in the video (26:40 to be exact) Also more proof and additional tweet of the same thing but a slowed down version. (WARNING IT'S GRAPHIC)
  12. Actually that ain't on me that's actually on you because I ain't defending KUSA for what they did. They knew what they were doing.
  13. Which from all indications Tegna knew just as much as Pinkerton knew that he wasn't properly licensed and didn't let law enforcement know about it.
