"What would you like to see in a newscast"?
You have an opinion, we know it! You give them to us every day on social media… but do you feel like your opinions are really being heard? 10News is looking for a select group of Visionaries to help us better understand what you are looking for in a television newscast.
Publishers Notes: The Main Stream Media, (MSM) lied, delivered "fake news" and thought they were all powerful enough to convince Americans that Hillary was the answer and Trump was a racist, abused women and dozens of other harmful attacks.
Now that Trump won, the MSM wants to know the TRUTH, something they know nothing about. They want YOU to tell them how they should do business. They want YOU to send videos, pictures and opinions so that THEY don't have to leave the building any more.
Here's what I can tell you on a local level. BIG advertisers called our local news outlets and told them to STOP ragging on Donald Trump, they refused. Today, MILLIONS of dollars worth of advertisers have cancelled their advertising with them, hence ALL of the commercials you are now seeing on WBOC & WMDT begging for advertisers. That's a fact Ladies & Gentlemen.
These long term advertisers who dropped their business with WBOC & WMDT have put a major hurting on them. Oh sure, you'll see replacement advertisers for the short term but these smaller businesses simply cannot afford to run multiple ads each and every day like the ones who dropped out.
Who knows, perhaps their requests to ask the public just what we're looking for in our news is a good thing though. I can recall the Daily Times making promises years ago that they'd do more local news and in depth reporting, they lied. In fact, they shrunk the paper, increased subscription rates through the roof and laid off tons of employees.
The mere FACT that every single county on the entire Eastern Shore voted in favor of Donald Trump while they, (all of them) still continue to put out negative news about him should clearly tell you, they couldn't care less about what you think.
As for their advertisers, do you people realize that us viewers MUTE the commercials and or fast forward right through them. I am always amazed on a daily basis at just how clueless these businesses are. They are throwing good money after bad money and need to get with the times.
