  1. Excuse me while I shoot myself -litteraly. And while I'm at it, maybe @[1:@Weeters] should wipe my account clean like I never existed.
  2. Shoot the messenger, maybe I'll shoot myself!
  3. excuse me while I drug myself to death...
  4. I'd rather be dead than being alive getting assaulted by other users on the Internet simply expressing my opinion or having a title of a thread change for "quality" purposes. Jesus do we have rights in the US? #livefreeordie. See my handle on competing sites. Good Day!
  5. I'm out again, I can't take people throwing eggs because I see things differently - leaving again to go onto competing sites ( one I manage.) Sorry folks TVNT is so 2005.
  6. CBS2NE is back, just on very *seldom* basis...
  7. CBS2NE is back, just on a seldom basis.
  8. I've decided to leave TVNT for a number of reasons. I didn't think I be around for so long and post over 500 comments. I think I registered because I wanted to post 2 cents on I believe the subject of the CBS O&Os. Anyways, I'll see you when I see you kinda thing. If you are so interested to follow me elsewhere, I'll put links to the members only part of my profile. Bye
  9. thinking the ISP is blocking me from TVNT, good bye for now???
  10. I feel like I can't have a minority opinion without being treated in certain unspecified ways...
  11. is everything done in production control? I don't know about Gannett's package if elements (like time/temp and crawl) is done at master or done on another engine in production.
  12. Take Care of Business Pats, please swoop and take the Trophy away from the defending champs!
  13. Jon Stewart is a low life comedian who mocks journalists who never wrote a real hard hitting story in his life!
  14. the 2012 Super Bowl introduced the infamous (to a lot of fanfare) Look F. In fact the cuts they used sounded a little different than in the Look C, the pitch sounds a little different.
  15. So want to do a mock newscast on the blizzard, but all the assets are stored on a server shutdown from a possible outage. Too complicated to restart today.
  16. What do you suggest? A demented logo like WUSA? Oh sorry "wusa".
  17. She's way too progressive. I'm talking about the set. Remember her backstab about the original set that looked like a grandmother's living room? In fact the set was the good ole days of watching The View from a male POV. They really did talk about girl issues, and the politics was always half an A-block, it was part of the larger discussion, not the other way around. Ever since the set change, I hated the stage setup. It looks like a Broadway without the musical or a daily drama performance. A canned presentation of people fighting over the dinner table, just the difference is this show is set up with cameras and a satellite dish. The curtains on the set should shutter going to break!
  18. I feel so bad for the Patriots. The spygate and deflate gate should be a textbook lesson for sports journalism. Oh wait, there isn't a major study on that? Damn!
  19. slight change, but still the same overkill of color coded stories and format where the viewers have no time to spend with their stations. (Assuming if the rundown still exists.)
  20. Now you mentioned it, I shouldn't be surprised. Then I say to myself how many ways you can make a package sound so great. Then I realize many cuts are less than a few seconds to less than a minute. LA Groove (sounding like broken record) just didn't fit the vibe of the new NBC 10. The recent years went to a very kick***, fast paced, driving force to its news delivery. Also the substance of the news (which every station should still look up to 10 for) also fit with the style of the theme, believe it or not. KHOU's V2 of Propulsion fits into this description to a lesser extent. Going showtunes ruined the entire vibe of delivering the news. Arnold isn't kidding when a stations ratings can be impacted up to 15% because of sonic branding news music. The times I would see 10 with LA Groove, I wouldn't stay on it for long. The music would make me go mellow or fall asleep. You loose connection to the viewers.
  21. I don't know how many cuts that package has between the WCAU and KNSD themes, but the cuts WCAU had used seemed to be a long cut that was used for opens, bumps and to close the program out. With the help of some audio manipulating apps, they probably made the cuts appear to be longer than the original cut.
  22. Thank Disney for this corporate whoring outside the O&Os. I find it pathetic they think dictating the affiliates what they can or can't brand is right.
  23. The still is laughable: that screen is so tacky with the "bug" being painted on the chroma screen. I guess they were too cheap to allow the CG to place a digital bug on that screen instead.
  24. tickers were fun for morning shows (and prior to 9/11) when a CG operator had to manually enter stories. One sentence or two with a semicolon split. Now with news being ripped off via RSS wires, there is no requirement of needing to write spiffy and quick stories. Just ask the people who run the ticker at the Fox News Channel. That to me is more annoying. Gannett's look was and always been busy for the viewer that isn't loyal to their newscast as say a competitor.
  25. missed that part. I don't like that gradient surrounding the graphics. That belongs on a Dock on your desktop than say a TV screen.
