EXCLUSIVE! 25-66 interviews Armstrong Williams

Post by sinklair » Tue Sep 08, 2020 11:28 pm

It’s amazing. Not sure how 25-66 got so lucky to get a groundbreaking interview.

Was it with George Clooney? Nope.
Did Lebron James stop by the 25-66 studios? Nope.
Stephen Colbert popped up in Flint for a special appearance? Nope... and wrong network.

However, in the absence of any real celebrities, 25-66’s In Over Her Head News Director was able to secure an “exclusive” interview with the owner of the station, Armstrong Williams.

Don’t believe me? I know it’s quite a remarkable “get”. But here’s video evidence:

It’s nice that Mid-Michigan NOW! was able to find time in its 4-hour long morning show to allow Armstrong to hawk his new book. Retail value $23.99.

Being an “exclusive”, I’m sure you won’t be able to find Armstrong anywhere else... unless you’re a Sinclair station forced to air this infomercial:

Grand Rapids: https://wwmt.com/news/local/armstrong-w ... in-america

Las Vegas: http://news3lv.com/news/local/author-ar ... in-america

West Palm Beach:
https://cbs12.com/news/armstrong-army-s ... -relations

Interesting that most of these “exclusive” interviews included many of the same questions. Coincidence? I think not. Another example of Sinclair shoving these non-local news segments down the throats of their stations.

The following link has nothing to do with race relations... instead it’s another type of “relations” that we have to watch out for whenever Armstrong makes his way to his Flint station:

What do you expect?

You hit the nail on the head that everyone there is in over their heads. All of them. From top to bottom. They’re all clueless, lack direction, and lack drive to improve. Any effort to call out substandard effort be damned.

The article you posted starts with a lead sentence that’s not even a sentence. Armstrong Williams begins the segment by calling the interviewer the wrong name. Just a cluster that you’d expect from Pierson Road.

Now, why are you so racist against a black owner? Rather than celebrate the diversity at the top position, you criticize him for being successful.

He’s a figurehead for Sinclair, which all but controls the stations and has all control over their intellectual property.

Dudley: bad analogy. Armstrong, not Arnold.

And no, Armstrong doesn’t hang with the people who actually keep the lights on at his stations. And the former GM/egomaniac/accountant in chief Chad shielded Armstrong from any bad news.

“Nothing to see here...”

Sorry, Dudley. I want born in the 1840s.

But if you want to throw down with 1990s boy band karaoke, I’m in.

You didn't get to interview the boss Armstrong Williams Sinklair did everyone at 25/66 get his book for free/discount or have to buy it at full price if you wanted the book. I know you didn't want the book to begin with

As I tell my kids: Watch your language, Dudley.

If you can’t add anything of substance to the post topic, might I suggest that it’s time for you to move on to another hobby? Like yelling at kids to stay off your lawn.
