Re: Cher’s favorite stalker strikes again

The Jason Fielder Howard Stern sportscast is still one of the biggest TV abominations of all time. Many refuse to speak of it. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SXrsMllJbz8 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VurQH9ldkrE Something we actually agree on. It was the absolute worst. I actually sort of felt bad f...

Re: All local TV meteorologists are terrible at their jobs!!!

Few flurries? Snow ending by 9AM? My ass!!!! Snowing like balls at my house right now. Slushy accumulation is now forming on sidewalks and streets. As for the high temp prediction of 46 degrees, I'll believe it when I see it. I bet we struggle to only 41 or 42 today. So... since they didn’t get the...

Re: The media wants you to panic

This is journalistic malpractice. 12 of the top 14 stories on the Detroit News homepage are coronavirus. 20 of 21 on the Detroit Free Press’ homepage are coronavirus. The media says things like “we didn’t do this,” #factsoverfear, “all we said was to wash your hands.” 100% false. It wants you to fe...

Re: They have gone mad.

Things aren’t closing because “the media” made people scared. Things are closing and events are being canceled because EXPERTS, MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS and YOUR GOVERNMENT LEADERS deemed this situation serious enough to do so. Please remember that “the media” does not tell the government what to do. ...

Re: 25-66’s lack of Coronavirus response plan

Audio: 25-66’s plan amounts to wash your hands and stay home unpaid for two plus weeks if you need to be quarantined. When you’re making wages barely above minimum wage and don’t get two weeks of sick leave, this is a disincentive for journalists to take appropriate steps to protect themselves and ...

Re: Who proofreads this crap?

Mistakes are just that. Should we accept them? No. Things need to improve and it starts with the top. I think I’ve been very clear about that for some time now. If you don’t like my approach, then suggest your own changes/solutions. You have some insight into how things run at 25. You know the pers...

Re: Who proofreads this crap?

Herm, if you’ve read my previous posts, I’ve been clear where the problems are at 25-66. There are a lot of good people doing good work, only to be undermined by management who doesn’t care about quality journalism. They only care about profit margins and cutting costs. There is no local control, h...

Re: Who proofreads this crap?

Herm: I’m calling out management. There is a lack of institutional oversight over these social media platforms that allow these easily correctable mistakes from being published. That clearly falls on management to fix it. We have a process in place to review stories by multiple people before it goe...

Re: Who proofreads this crap?

On 25-66’s Facebook page: “So, what happens if you have a warrant from Art Van. We asked the question.” First it’s “warranties” — not “warrants.” Second, they left off the question mark. Come on guys, it’s basic 4th grade grammar. And just so you don’t think this was an isolated mistake, here are o...

Re: O M G

The irony of this written paragraph criticizing someone else’s mistakes is astounding. The fact that you missed the content of the story, and nit-picking on grammar, is "astounding". I didn’t miss the content of the story. TBH I didn’t even dispute your assessment of the story. I didn’t nit pick.

Re: Justin

Who is “JUSTIN”? I keep getting TV5 alerts with the title “JUSTIN”. Can someone over there tell whoever is pushing out stories that he/she is missing a space. It should be “JUST IN”.
