"Why do you value local news?" They ask.

Because it's worth it to be informed. But I sure don't get my local news from what's left of the Tribune-Review!!!

Yeah, and it seems like WESA is getting all it's news from the Trib these days. A day-late story this morning, credited to the Trib, about Liberty Bridge construction, and a long interview with Conte about the Media Center.

Neither here nor there, perhaps, but U.S. News just ranked Point Park as tied for 110th place among regional colleges in the Northeast. Will the new Playhouse at the old Honus Wagner's give them a boost?

If the three foundations, Pittsburgh, Heinz and Mellon, did not exist, neither would WESA. They aren't that popular in the area and even got rid of their local interview show. All they want is to broadcast 24/7 NPR crap aimed at a few hundred people plus the foundation leaders and those who run the station. The hell with what the community wants. If it's lousy, we don't care. We're subsidized

Actually, that thinking sounds a lot like the way execs at Trib Total Media thought a few years ago. And we saw how that came out!

Well, WPXI has the Trib as a "News Partner," and they're the third-rated TV news op in Pittsburgh. So why shouldn't the mediocre windbags at 90.5, a third-rate station playing to the elite, also quote news from the crumbling empire at the Clark Building?
