when you look back at what the old website was, and what this is now, it's sad

Think about the thousands of people who work in tv news around the country. Yet only a few post on this site. Why.

Probably because most newsrooms restrict web useage.
Most probably have filters in place to block "non-essential" websites from being downloaded. (Not my newsroom!)
And when most of us get home, we probably don't wanna "talk shop"...preferring instead to vent/have or social networking fun on FaceBook or Twitter.

Yeah, the practice of journalsim is a joke these days and in most markets the business is all about merging stations rather than enhancing product.
...along with staff cutbacks, people leaving the field, going to jail for bad behaviors due to work related stress ( I suspect mostly due to being forced to compromise their journalism ethics) or dropping dead at their desks from too much work.
I guess people give up when they no longer care.

The rudeness of a few trolls have driven many away, sadly.

if it weren't for a few disgruntled people in Portland Maine----who are apparently being forced at gunpoint to stay there for lilfe----this board wouldn't exist at all.
