I generally watch the local news on WPTZ when I’m in North Puffin; I like the coverage, the weather reportage, the broadcast team, and the editorial stance.
I don’t like the way they play network programming promos as news, as in “Our next news story is what’s on the t00b tonight.” I don’t care if they think they have to because “other stations do it.”
A teevee show ain’t news.
They do the same thing here in Australia. It’s a universal thing in tv land.
