Bad

An alert reader, unable take it anymore, writes,
Been reading this site for as long as it's been up...
But I finally have to bag on 6...
Pretty sure UNO's news cast isn't near as bad as tonight's 6 o'clock cast... 
Dundee murder, they've been hyping it as a new international twist...
John Chapman never said a word about anything international...
Come on!
Do they have any idea bad they have gotten?
If they do, they do a remarkable job of hiding it. In fact, they always seem to exude a certain smug pride.

Another exasperating aspect of the Chapman report was his assertion that the murder "has shook up" Dundee. How lazy (and grammatically embarrassing) can this guy get before they fire him? (Then again, how many Suxers have we asked that about, only to find there's apparently no limit to what they'll tolerate?)

A friend used the phrase "intellectual dishonesty" and I think that the people at SUX are guilty of being just that.

You can't get me to believe that they are unaware that they are making such errors. If they are and present themselves with the authority of competence, then shame on them and those who employ them as well.

I gave up on 6 quite a while ago, but I admit to watching it due to laziness changing from the Olympics.

Anyway, they hyped the heck out of the murder updates as if there was a break in the long-stale case, but no, just the same non-details that were long played out months ago. :(

That Justin Joseph guy is the worst, especially on Twitter. I've seen him kill off a woman who was stabbed before he even left the station and confirmed anything...she's still alive today. Another time he wrote that there was a shooting involving police even though no shooting was ever confirmed. You can usually count on him to rush with a story to be first, then figure out what the facts are later.

Justin Joseph is a drama queen extraordinaire. Every time he interviews somebody who doesn’t want to be revealed on camera, he invariably informs us that the victim is “Speaking out from the darkness of a shadow”.

He can always be depended on to make a news story sound like dialogue from an episode of “Another World”.

I don't think the crew at SUX is guilty of "intellectual dishonesty" because in order to be guilty of that you have show signs of intellect and I see none.

Re: Dumb Anguish:
An episode of Dark Shadows would probably be closer to the truth.
