I don't care what anybody says. Trump's trials won't help his poll numbers.

Preoccupied Trump too busy to browbeat Mike Johnson into withholding military aid from our allies.

Stanton's former team said he had created a "toxic atmosphere" after his request for balanced coverage

A director of a Michigan news station was fired after issuing a memo to journalists asking them to provide fair and honest coverage of LGBTQ Pride month events, which includes the criticism that has been seen across the country.

Stanton Tang, the former news director of NBC affiliate Wood TV 8, was terminated from his position last week after ordering his assistant to draft a memo stating that the news station must ensure it puts out balanced coverage on the LGBTQ Pride month, as the network has received complaints about its journalists fawning over the activities and not engaging in fair reporting, according to The Desk.

"We need to recognize that some stories related to LGBTQ issues are going to be controversial and polarizing in our community. While you personally may not agree with a certain position, people are entitled to their opinions, and they are our viewers."

Employees at the network were reportedly furious after receiving the memo and alleged that the network under Tang's leadership was a "toxic" work environment.

"The toxic atmosphere created by Stanton's behavior has had a profound impact on the well-being and morale of our team," one employee wrote in an email to The Desk.

Luke Stier and Madeline Odle, former executive producers at the network, were also terminated over allegations that they had leaked the memo to the press.


A call for balanced reporting of the news creates a "toxic atmosphere" among the woke.

When you white limousine lib progressive want to boast about being woke?...This is what woke means.

Note: This is how the tide had turned. Truth loses the battle for the TQ side.

    Was the news director consistent? Did they tell their staff to cover "both sides" of African American History Month, Women's History Month, Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, Hispanic Heritage Month and Native American Heritage Month?

    What about covering "both sides" of Easter, Christmas, Mothers' Day and other holidays?

    Good point, Curt. For Veteran's Day we could ask the Viet Cong, the Iraqis and Afghanis what they think of our military having a personal day to celebrate their crimes heroics.

    Splain

    What do you need for me to explain to you? Indy gave a great example about Veterans Day.

    I have long suspected that Christmas and Easter are fairytales. Both those stories need greater investigation. How can you disagree that local news channels should be looking at both sides of those suspicious stories? Don’t we deserve the truth?


  5. by HatetheSwamp on July 5, 2023 9:23 am

    Christmas certainly is a fairytale. Easter is well established in historical evidence. By all means, it should be reported from all sides!

    Easter may be established by historical evidence, but I would like to know what scientific evidence says. A story about somebody rising from the dead sounds like a crock to me.

    At any rate it appears my point stands. The news director hasn’t sought to know both sides of any other special month or holiday. That does not seem fair and balanced.

    Y'think?

    How is Easter "well established in historical evidence"? I'm not even religious and I've heard plenty of conflicting stories that make more sense than the Biblical version.
