I am pro active, I see Andrea Isom, I turn the channel. Within seconds.
The sad thing is she is easy on the eyes and her normal voice is rather pleasant...

I thought that Andrea Isom is a good crime reporter when she was a crime reporter for Crime Watch Daily in its first 2 years.

They played the Biden corvette campaign ad during the news cast, pretending it was news, with the two talking heads respectfully quiet during the actual playing.

Not sure how much further in the tank they can get.

Now I know. The 7am hour, 1/4 of the coverage was running Biden and Peters ads as "news". I turned it off

I will be curious to see how the locals handle the R convention next week. We need to see how they handle it before passing judgement.

Same here! :)


Rock 95.5 in Chicago is the worst sounding major market rock station in the history of corporate radio.

Scripps has slowly ruined this station. Wouldn’t mind ABC taking back ownership and fixing this train wreck.
Agreed!!! Unfortunately, I think Scripps will not be unloading WXYZ anytime soon. Scripps generally wrecks the stations it purchases, although there are some noteworthy exceptions.

I turned on the 6am hour to see how they found the poor fireman who died.

Kept the TV on while making breakfast. ABC is going wall to wall-- Trump is evil and a liar who lies to all of us and can't be trusted and is trying to kill his sisters. Then straight into how Biden and Harris are reasoned and perfect.

It was really bad. Like it must have been watching TV in the Soviet Union or Cuba, just garbage propaganda

I also see no mention on 7's website about a riot in downtown Detroit last night, strange!

Seems like I've noticed a lot recently where they will lead a Trump quote or statement with "unfounded"or "baseless"but don't do the same to similar statements by Pelosi or Schumer

Because they are at least half true. Meaning there is a basis and they weren’t simply invented in a room somewhere and repeated by naive people. Much of what Trump says doesn’t rely on any experts or academics or officials of any kind. It’s just him saying it.

“I’m smarter than the generals”.. says him... prove it.

“Mail in voting is full of fraud but absentee voting isn’t”.. says him... prove it.

“I don’t know.. (insert indicted person here)”... says him... despite pictures of him with the person.

We could do this all week with literally thousands of statements. He’s a fraud. Pelosi and Schumer do not engage in this level of deception. You can’t simply apply the same standard to people doing different things. He needs a disclaimer because literally everything he says needs to be checked first. They engage in traditional political rhetoric. Two different animals.
