Commentary: Offers and promotions for products made from living (or dead) creatures and acts of cruelty toward such creatures

If I were the owner and/or manager of a local TV station or a local radio station, I would not allow for it to be involved in any special offers or promotions involving meat or others products made from living (or dead) creatures other than humans due to my personal feelings concerning such products (I would consider them disgusting, inhumane, and unnecessary) and my feelings for other folks who might share those feelings (as for folks who might not share those feelings, I would suggest they reconsider their views of such products and the lives and feelings of creatures other than humans). I would also not allow for it to have any programming promoting of cruelty toward living creatures such as videos of news reports promoting the act of hunting living creatures (WKRG-TV often had videos of such reports involving crocodiles (or "alligators") in some of the local news programming produced for their broadcast operation in recent times) or videos with certain persons demonstrating hunting certain creatures other than humans (WALA-TV often had videos of such demonstrations in some of the local news programming produced for their broadcast operation in recent times (the videos were usually called "FOX 10 Outdoors" segments)).

Commentary: News broadcasters and news writers promoting certain notions

I wish all news broadcasters (including news presenters and news reporters) and news writers would not use phrases like "those who fought for our country", "those who fought for our freedom", and "honoring and celebrating those who were willing to sacrifice their lives for freedom" while either presenting or doing news reports concerning former or current members of services specialized in defending the United States (doing so would make them appear as if they were expressing their own personal feelings pertaining to those former or current members or promoting certain notions pertaining to them and those services) when they should only be providing information pertaining to them whereas their audiences could form their own personal feelings or notions pertaining to them.
