The right/moderates in this town could care less about funding decent journalism or the joke that passes as "media" here would be long gone. When it's too late, and when the radical liberal agenda further affects their pocketbook, they may wake up.
Most business owners here are too busy vacationing out of town or wasting money by hiring progeny that needs a job.
Sinclair's purchase of Bonten Media is a great move. KAEF presents news, as it should be, facts with different and balanced perspectives. I watch Sinclair stations nationwide; they focus on local news and are professional.
The left in this town, more accurately described as the "fas" of the "antifas" are too filled with hate and fund crap like Lost Coast Communications and Hank "lets drink at noon and continue at 4" Sims and Goff, aka "I have no clue about news but Hank bought me a camera". NCJ, LOCO, and those threatened by Sinclair have half a dozen staffers yet what news or original news do they produce? They all are buddies and hang out and pat each other on the back. Real journalists don't hang out in Old Town boozing it up at lunch, Hank, with KIEM general manager J. Hockaday.
