    That sucks. Hopefully he either keeps his job, or finds one with a good company.
    There is way too much hype being thrown around by the media.
    Every morning starts off with a "Breaking News" alert, for pretty much nothing.

    I've not heard too much good stuff about Sinclair Media.

    I've heard that it takes two managers to open the office supply cabinet to get a box of pens.

    Cross them, and you'll disappear.

    Joe Crain complained about all the "Code Red" weather alerts. Here in Los Angeles, all the local television newscasts do something similar every time a rainstorm is moving south toward this area. In such instances, the impending rain is almost always the lead story on every newscast, and every station (KABC, KCAL, KCBS, KNBC, KTLA, KTTV) puts up the same graphic: STORM WATCH. Sometimes the predicted rainfall is only a tenth of an inch. Sometimes a storm will dissipate before it gets this far south. Sometimes a storm will change direction and bypass the Los Angeles area. But if there is even the slightest possibility of rain, the newscasts' lead story will be STORM WATCH. Sheesh!​

    The last time I noticed, the local West Palm Beach news I watch (WPTV) is owned by Scripps Broadcasting. They use that same text overlay style that pretty much all local news uses but the weather isn't all doom and gloom unless a hurricane is somewhere nearby.

    Ft. Lauderdale and Miami have normal local news but also channel 7 (WSVN) that is owned by Sunbeam TV Corp and it's real fun to watch but kinda a joke. It's like a TMZ of local news and they love to really exaggerate everything, from weather to crashes on 95 and everything else.

    I believe that they are the broadcasting company that John Oliver ripped apart on a recent episode of This Week.
