The Truth Behind WBOC & WMDT's Recent Cable Issues

I especially liked this part from the FCC regarding television licensing:

FAIRNESS DOCTRINE’

According to a fact sheet on the FCC website, when reviewing licenses the agency must determine if a renewal is in the public interest.

The FCC said in the fact sheet it expects “station licensees to be aware of the important problems and issues facing their local communities and to foster public understanding by presenting programming that relates to those local issues.


Publishers Notes: We've all seen it, especially lately. Local television stations are spending more time on news from California, Chicago and elsewhere. They are not providing enough local content and even when they do cover local content it's all BS fluff stuff and not even news. It certainly isn't "fair and balanced". While these television stations cry that they are being treated unfairly, THERE ARE RULES. WBOC's local Fox News station broadcasts mainly OTHER Liberal stations news and when do you ever see a FOX Affiliate/Reporter reporting on that station? 

Crime is obviously important to locals, especially rapes. NONE of this is being covered. It's about time someone stand up to our local mainstream media.

low budget station anyway

well, the problem is that for tv and radio- NO ONE IS WATCHING or LISTENING. Seriously. They run pre-packaged news from other cities because it is cheaper than hiring news staff.

Whenever I do have WBOC new on, it seems like most of their show is giving names of people/businesses that have made a donation to their latest charity fundraiser. It used to be around Thanksgiving and Christmas time, but now they are also doing it for recent storm victims. There is no need for them to be mentioning who has made a donation during their news time. But, it is very obvious that they don't have enough news to talk about, so they constantly fill each show with their charity fundraisers. I am all for helping others, BUT I do not want to hear about it on EVERY ONE of their news shows.

They are COVERING up local Crime BC of the COLLEGE Parents shouldn't be AWARE OF IT.

it all comes down to the lack of money. So both WBOC and WMDT have those "nostalgia" channels on them. You would think by adding extra channels, they would be adding extra commercial inventory. And yet, as far as I can tell, they rarely show local commercials in the evening. Watch Johnny Carson on Antenna TV- its all ASPCA and sick Shriner's hospital kids. Why are they not filling their own commercial space with local advertising?

Do you suggest someone stand up and fight for their rights??? Their news, there ability to get real factual current and relevant news???? You must be as stupid as those who run their mouth on this blog and refuse to put action behind words who just want to complains and blame everyone else for their problems or why some politicians gets away with doing something the citizens let them get away with...

Who would make such a suggestion, and actually think someone will actually do it... AND YES THIS IS ALL SARCASM, no one expects or believes you people will do anything for your own self, your own good, the betterment of society...

There is not any investigative reporting in our local community. Most of the fluff comes out of Delaware, so I doubt they are even reporting all the crime and corruption in this state as well. We have an out of control drug epidemic on most of the shore. It's out of control from Dorchester County south. Not being talked about or reported. We have some serious problems in Salisbury that is not being reported. Based on this, I don't think they deserve to have their licenses renewed because they don't serve us. They serve the advertisers and the tourism industry. Bad news is, after all bad for business!

Yeah. SBY getting an amphitheater....Fake Day announced on FB. Must be for the local amateur rap artists and hippie folk festival freaks.

It has gotten so the lead stories on local news, are more frequently the same stories in the same liberal tone, you hear a half hour later on CBS or ABC.

11:52, There's a LOT of truth in what you said.

However, here's the difference. I personally have been the voice for 56,000,000 hits. I have always had the financial means to stand up to the political bullies. They've sued me, they've bullied me and they've done everything in their power to bring me down, they have failed.

Love me or hate me, I speak for at least tens of thousands of people who come here each and every day. I am a FREE site where each and every one of you have the ability to either come here daily, or not. No one has a gun to their heads.

I give each and every one of you the opportunity to voice your opinions anonymously, without the fear of retaliation, unlike WBOC, WMDT or the DT's forcing you to expose yourself through a registered Facebook account.

SBYNews is by far the greatest thing, (news wise) that ever hit the Shore. We are all patriots allowed to fight the establishments and unfortunately I am the only one who makes statements in my own name. I completely understand why most do not and I firmly respect that.

We, together, have influenced MANY decisions made by local and state elected officials.

So by stating our viewers don't do anything, you are completely wrong. If SBYNews shut down, BELIEVE ME, you'd know absolutely NOTHING. NO ONE would ever be challenged and your tax dollars would all end up in the Good Ol' Boys pockets without ANY accountability. By voicing your comments, (even anonymously) believe me, I know for a FACT that our elected officials are listening.

Let's also NOT FORGET, every one of the news media mentioned above endorsed 100% people who were NOT elected in the last election while SBYNews endorsed every single elected official that won with the exception of ONE, from the President on down the line.

TOGETHER we do make a difference and that is a FACT!

I have a very serious question to ask aside from the fact that it is financially draining without sponsors and people that can put the money up because there is a lot of cost in the media which Joe I know you pay for hand over foot out of your own personal pocket I do understand however some businesses may advertise with you but the money use their barely supports having one staff member help you. I know you have had videoed news before but would it be possible for you to be on the air possibly television or even online maybe but to have an actual half hour broadcast. I understand sports and weather but to be honest I could care less if you had that on your segment unless it is something important like a natural disaster or one of the NFL people acting like assholes I was just wondering because I'm addicted to coming on here and seeing what people have to say and what all you post I think a lot of people would like seeing it on video

1:34, For the record, I am in discussions right now with hosting a conservative radio talk show. I have also had recent discussions with another daily news broadcast on YouTube. What we do here has never been about the money. If the majority are willing to look at my mug every day, we will truly consider it. I can tell you this as well. I have also been approached by a very large business willing to pay me $3,000,000.00 a year in advertising if I'd be willing to buy out WBOC's Fox News channel. They have offered a very long term contract. To be completely honest, I'm retired. If someone came along and made a nice offer for SBYNews I'd truly consider it. Of course it would have to be the right kind of people and offer but I think I've done this long enough. HOWEVER, I'll not walk away until I totally DESTROY WBOC, WMDT & the DT's. That being said, put your seat belts on because I have a lot of work to do before I'm done. Either the truth be told by the rest of the media or I'll stick with this until I can no longer physically do so.

Why do people who have no clue comment and want the issues spoon fed to them?How can you or anyone else enlighten these people to years of media issues in one brief statement?There are always those who apparently just woke up and missed it all.They should just go back to sleep.

Hey Joe, have you also thought about doing podcasts? I also listen to some of the days radio shows like the Savage Nation and the X22 financial report this way. Maybe even Youtube?

Rarely turn on the local stations. Network programming stinks. And now that I quit watching the NFL, no reason to watch.

11:52 Why do you troll every blog, calling everyone stupid and such. For comments riddled with misspelling and grammatical errors, you have no reason to try insult anyone. Just what are you doing that makes you so much better than ever one else. Nothing! Keep trolling, though. Keep your crazy inside and not out in public.

What makes you think he is the only one calling people stupid? Or he is the only one "trolling" the blogs? People do share common thoughts and beliefs you know. Maybe it just seems that way to you since you are in a minority. You calling out his spelling and actually call him a troll? lol.

And BTW, what have YOU done for the betterment of society? But keep trolling though. lol.

What local business? Besides car dealerships, some banks, and insurance companies, there really isn't much local advertising all day or night. Could it be because there are few small businesses-the heart of the economy.
