Three plus one does not equal four solid sources of news.
Buffalo, NY is a mid-sized city with THREE local news stations but only one newspaper.
Of the three TV stations, Channel 4 has been rated the highest with channel 7 the lowest--ch. 7 is rated as "the least one" by other than us.
Each station needs to compete while make news reporting a full-time job, which gets in the way of concise news, like it or not. That happens all the time now!
There was a time when the news was delivered on TV "short, sweet and to the point". The commentators were not suppose to show any emotion or make a single personal comment. Just the facts, mam... Those days went byebye.
In order to hear all the news on one subject, we are baited to get to the TV at least three times each day! We make time to watch at one time but can't get "the rest of the story" without following the three-points trail every day!
SOLUTION???: Don't watch the TV at all. Find the station online after the final broadcast of a given day and get it all that way. NO, that won't work. Darn. We can't be glued to the TV or computer all day, 16/7 (with 8 hrs. sleep)...Hey! Wait! Following the news exclusively on the Net IS the best way to avoid seriously stupid commercials without wearing out the MUTE buttons!!!
I pretty much only watch Ch. 4 BECAUSE it sensationalizes news the best! That is NOT my positive commentary for Ch. 4 actually being the best though.
Sometimes watching the news can be fun. We laughed the day two commentators both pronounced a well-known area wrong without either one noticing and correcting themselves.
Those two, a well-known guy and gal, both appearing to be USA born, bred and educated, they both referred to Arkansas, a place we American citizens were taught how to pronounce in our early grade school days, as "are can zzis"!!! They didn't correct--they WERE in Kansas! haha
The Buffalo News is the only "major" paper within Buffalo both on and off the Internet. It is what rates "the least one".
