Re: Jim Acosta from CNN is missing the mark

How to "deal with" Trump the assclown?
So how are you supposed to deal with a temperamental idiot?

What I would be "amazed" at is that anyone would vote for this assclown again in any election.

Re: Florida Deregulates Telegraph

It doesn't matter. The FCC already scraped telegraph regulations three years ago. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-fcc-telegraph/u-s-agency-scraps-unused-telegraph-regulations-in-trump-rules-purge-idUSKBN1CO2XE And the feds were the ones to regulate interstate communication anyway.

Two political handicappers give Biden the electoral lead

It seems the worst President ever would have to come up with almost twice as many electoral votes as Biden to win. https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/03/23/politics/electoral-college-2020-donald-trump-joe-biden/index.html And currently in most of the swing states assclown Trump would have to win, Arizona,...

Re: The Democrat Party Plan To Permanently Tank The Economy

These are the demands the Democrats are making in order to get them to support bailout plan. These bastards are undoubtedly the most horrible people in the country. They are selfish, looking out for their own families and cronies, and not a whit for real Americans hurt by this crisis. https://dbdai...

Re: Could A Noncommercial And Commercial Station Share One Channel Like 6 And 53?

Well... many, many moons ago WILX shared channel 10 with WKAR (or WMSB back then.) Organman is right, yes, noncomm and commercial seem to be able to channel share. WPMT Fox43 and WITF PBS are both sharing digital RF channel 36 in Harrisburg, PA. Both keep their virtual channel number 43 and 33 respe...

Re: FSD technicians told to work at Meijer

What Evan Petzold doesn't mention is that Sinclair has an enormous debt. Sinclair funded the purchase of the regional Fox Sports with $8.9 billion of debt. S&P Global just revised Sinclair's credit outlook to negative. So, unfortunately, this is not a total surprise. They probably don't have the mon...

Re: AT&T Questions Broadcasters' Use of TV Spectrum

Given the fact they payout millions (probably hundreds of millions) of dollars in retransmission fees to TV broadcasters to carry them on their cable and satellite systems and are legally obligated to do so. I would think it'd be a pretty good thing for them if there were fewer TV stations on the br...

Re: Michigan state of emergency!

The main question is what is the government’s role in this? Do you want to be barricaded in your house with next to no freedom? Some suggest doing that. I am more in the personal responsibility camp. I still haven’t changed a thing in my life. Hey did you see the DIA millage passed by more than a 2...
