Have your vacation paid by 25-66

Post by sinklair » Mon Aug 24, 2020 11:15 pm

At a time when NBC 25 refuses to issue pay raises, won’t refill positions that were eliminated and overall is doing more with less... here comes “station owner of the year”, Armstrong Williams.

Armstrong takes a company paid-for “work trip” (AKA vacation) and makes his local stations air morning interviews where he tells our viewers that he is touring Buckingham Palace and other London landmarks.

Of course, Armstrong doesn’t wear a mask, doesn’t social distance, and doesn’t speak with average folks about the impact of COVID-19 overseas (instead he “interviewed” young movie producers via a bad iPad camera.). These are the “geniuses” running 25-66 into the ground!!!

I wonder if the new GM paid Armstrong his $10K speaker fee to air his vacation photos...

Despite running 25-66 into the ground before running off to Seattle, the former accountant in chief/egomaniac is still sucking up to Armstrong. He now is allowing Armstrong to publish one-sided “news stories” promoting President Trump on the KOMO-TV website:

Dudley: it’s a great scam for someone who claims to be worth $200-million.

Don’t know about you, but I’d love to have my company pay for my vacation... especially at a time when they claim financial hardship to their employees.

SK:

Another Cry and Whine story. You and that POS Obozo, have something in common, it is ALWAYS someone else's fault. For 8 long disastrous years, all we heard it was Bush's fault. Same here with you. If TV25-66 is doing poorly, look in the mirror.

And this is the company William Jefferson Always-Semi-Retired "Hot Rod" Harris told employees to "pray for" the purchase.

So 101 what's the problem with that? Years ago we were all praying that Lin Broadcasting would be our savior, but look how that turned out.
You should know, You was there!

100% fiction, but thanks for playing.

Sinclair had a track record well before the purchase. WJASRHRH knew that. He still told people to pray for it to happen.
