Ratings and Reviews
Too many ads
News 5 loves their sponsors too much. As soon as you launch an ad appears. They over-cover some topics such as the ‘controversial’ Waffle House arrest and try to create a rift between law enforcement and the public. They are quick to antagonize the police as if they are trying to create a Baltimore situation. As far as politics go, they are far too quick to slam republicans but back liberals when they want to increase taxes and lower the standard of living. When Moore was running and the allegations can out for him, they insisted on showing ‘her truth’. Truth does not take sides and there is no such thing as my truth or your truth. They failed to show that these women came out publicly, some before some after the election, saying their accusations were false.
This station might as well promote fake news. People are better off relying on their neighbors or their hairdresser for news. The only great thing about this news channel is the weather.
Adam and John are the real MVPs!
I have been a WKRG watcher for years and now rely on the app for my news while traveling and have been very disappointed in the turn it has taken. Incomplete stories, very limited news, misspelled words and in the last few months all kinds of computer jargon in the middle of the articles. I start with WKRG but finish my news with Fox 10 because the stories are better written, more news and variety, and I am better informed through their news app.☹️
The best news station, the app is still a bit lacking. Click on a notification and story not found way too often.
