News for Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

  • WPMI-TV had what appeared to be a video recording of one of their news reporters redoing part of a news report she did for one of the local news programs they did for their companion station ("Local 15 News at 6:30 [p.m.]" for WJTC-TV) this past Monday, (the seventh day of this March) (the reporter appeared to be responding to the way the video was introduced as if she were having a live conversation with the person who introduced it before stopping herself to redo the response (she said, "All right, three, two, one" immediately after stopping and redoing it).* 
  • One of the news presenters for the local news program WPMI-TV had on their main broadcast channel between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. today ("Local 15 Today") said she wanted to tell her audience that a national TV programming service named the Tennis Channel was one of the "newest additions" to their holding (or "parent") company (the Sinclair Broadcast Group) after presenting a report attributed to the service on today's edition of the program (this is what she said, "And we want to tell you this: Tennis Channel is one of our newest additions to the Sinclair Broadcast Group. We love having them and of course as they continue to bring you news like that we'll continue to track it just for you"). 
  • There was no mention of WPMI-TV continuing to have programming segments dedicated to questions and advise about the legal system in the United States on Monday editions of their local midday news program ("Local 15 News at Noon") after the end of the most recent football season for the National Football League in their promotional videos about having such segments during the season due to some folks being unable to watch and/or hear their program dedicated entirely to questions and advise about the system ("Local 15 LawCall" was the name of the program) after their broadcasts of network programming about live football games officiated by the league on Sunday nights during the season (the games were usually broadcast under the name "Sunday Night Football").
(*the report was similar to one they had on one of the local news programs they had on their own broadcast channel earlier this past Monday (the earlier one had a graphic with the word "live" unlike the one they had later))
