"It is about time that CBS let this so-called non-biased news reporter leave. Once he does leave his post I will once again begin to watch the CBS Evening News. Since his ridiculous statements that he knew were not correct, I have not watched this broadcast. The very day he leaves I will return to Channel 7 and its integrity for fair news."
The attention we gave to Virginia Tech's first A-C-C championship brought a few complaints, including a viewer from Roanoke County (Tori Williams).
"Because the local paper informs its readers every time Coach Beamer blows his nose, I have turned to television to learn about local news stories. However, (a recent) 6pm broadcast began with the same type of pandering to the blind followers of all things Tech. While reporting on Tech's athletic exploints is certainly a worthy story for the sports segment near the end of the half hour (though the constant replaying of the Saturday highlights gets quite stale) I see little justification for the Tech worshipping at the beginning of the news."
