Emmanuel news conference

Recommended Posts

Every station carried the Mayor's speech about the murders live when he started at 6, and covered it at least until he was done if not until the 7pm hour. Every station that is except CBS2.

 

I found that very disappointing from a station that desperately needs ratings

I get that, but I don't see a reason they shouldn't have carried it during the 6pm newscast. It was wrapped up by 645 which would have given them time for a recap, short commentary and weather update. I just see a glaring lack of breaking news coverage from them for the past year or so.
