"It is totally disgusting to hear the news media refer to Thanksgiving as Turkey Day. What kind of message are you sending to your listeners? Those responsible for such an irritating, unpatriotic and irresponsible comment should be required to participate in an inservice to remind them what Thanksgiving really stands for, and what sacrifices our forefathers made so we can live in a free country, a country that is willing to fight for its freedom."

A viewer in Coleman Falls (J.L. Gregory) is unhappy about what he's seeing and NOT seeing on WDBJ-7.
"For several months I have complained about CBS losing the NASCAR racing coverage contract for the next seven seaons....someone thought that the program "Survivor" was more important than a presidential address during a time of war...Then, to cap things off I was watching the Early Show when an exclusive interview with the father of Mohammad Atta was announced. I considered this timing to be a slap in the face to all the veterans and terrorist victims in the United States during a time that is reserved to salute our veterans. I hope that the programming of Channel Seven will soon improve as well as the decisions of CBS. It would be a shame to lose one of our most senior local television stations." [Addresses]
