If you watch 7 lately they seem to be getting more liberal than CNN

The media loves all this rioting. They know that their cameras and lights help stir it up. They'll put on a self-righteous pose that they are shocked at all the rioting, but they can't wait to see what kinds of dramatic footage they captured, and what kinds of war stories they can tell back at the newsroom.

Wish there was some way that Craig could tell the media to stay away, but then he couldn't do his own self-promotion.

Can't disagree with one word.

The police put away the riot gear and look no riot happened.

Got 7's coverage on which finishing up some work. They went full court press, but I don't know how many folks can make the whole loop, a lot of them are looking really dogged out. So they aren't getting a lot of good bites.

The good news is the 7 team appears to be in the pretty good shape, the two women, Clifford and Russel, can walk and talk and the new guy Rudy is doing okay petty much.

Plus, if a few of them have the virus, then a lot of them will. Close crowding and lots of gasping for air.

Don't forget the photographers who are doing this while walking backwards, a real calf killer.

7 is still trying to get the Popcorn guy killed, even though he agreed to sell the business to one of their advertisers.

Meanwhile not one update on Mike Morse-- other than their weekly boot licking sessions.

This Friday GM is stopping work for 8 minutes 46 seconds to make a political statement. I haven't seen or heard the radio or TV coverage of this story, but the News and Free Press both basically cheer leaded this activity without considering the appropriateness of something like this in the workplace. I bet the HR lines were lit up at GM today by people who feel that they are being coerced to participate in a political activity at work.

Workplace political activity has been legally analyzed:

Flipped on 7 for 20 minutes this morning. Doing wall to wall on getting the Yspi mayor fired for saying she would get fired for not voting a black into an easy job. They have the new black reporter out reading it and Alicia the Hutt putting the boot in.

The article on their site has several horrible typos making it nearly incomprehensible... that said... I can’t figure out if she’s a liberal admitting being a part of a systematically racist environment in an Ann Arbor kind of way or just a racist and not shy about it...

It’s not a good position to be in as mayor of Ypsi... it’s majority black for one. For another she shot herself in the foot for some reason as everybody else voted against the guy’s renewal. Maybe she is actually trying to intentionally make a political statement here and totally blew the delivery...
