OK, vent, vent, go at it.

  1. OK, here's a complaint: I'm tired of waiting 5 seconds between when I turn my scroll wheel and when your web page scrolls up or down. Only your site, the problem doesn't happen anywhere else.

    How about cleaning out all the clutter that slows down your site? I doubt I'm the only reader who is frustrated by how inefficiently your site performs.

      I've accused Lieberman of just about everything but never thought of blaming him for this. BTW, it doesn't happen on my computer.

  2. Let's see, the weather, sports or news guys can't really impact what happens, only report. That leaves the traffic people.

    The details are ok but tips are more necessary. Please repeat the following tips like a broken record each and every report. Solve the root issue and the symptoms will disappear.

    Overloaded cardboard guy, stay off the freeway.

    Hybrid cars, the commuter lane expires, when it does, get in the slow lane where you belong.

    Contractors, put your ladder straps on the drivers seat, that way you won't forget to tie down.

    Real estate guy and hood rats, stay off the phone.

    1. Unfortunately, they are not the only ones. The term "breaking news" has lost its attention-grabbing status. We're all becoming completely desensitized to it.

    2. My local TV station just switched over to High Def, every chance they get they brag about High Def. It is getting very old very quick.

    3. Any station advertising HD, at this point, is doing themselves a disservice. They're simply calling attention to how late to the dance they really are.

    4. Agree with 5:08pm.
      What is with this "breaking news" from ABC7.
      As if starting your newscast with these words adds some sort of urgency or credence to the story.
      The next Watergate breakin? or the end of WWII?

  8. Hire another hot chick at KRON so Darya will go back to her old way of dressing.

  9. SFGate.com needs to add a symbol next the columns and stories that are protected by their paywall to avoid reading a short tease followed by "to read more, click HERE." Every online newspaper I read has this in place.

  10. Somebody tell Tim Montemayor to stop yelling into the mic, and while they are at it, tell him to prep for his show by doing basic research. What a sophomoric prick he is!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yes, you are right on. I don't think I ever heard him get his facts 100% correct, what prep!!! If he has his facts straight, he usually gets something else wrong, uses wrong vocabulary to describe something. What an insult he is on the same station that use to have Gene Burns, John Rothman and Bill Wattenberg (didn't like or agree with Dr. Bill all that much, but he was/is intelligent).

  13. Ok. Since you're asking for people to vent, here it goes: I can't stand it when KGO's weatherman Mike Nicco pronounces his occupation, meteorologist, with 5 syllables instead of 6! He pronounces it me-ter-o-lo-gist, as if he studies meters, not meteors. Am I the only one who notices this abomination of the English language? My 8 year-old grandson heard him one day on the radio and said, "That's not how to say that word!" Can't someone kindly take him aside and educate him as to the correct pronunciation of his own occupation? Management, perhaps? I have to quickly turn off the radio whenever he comes on because it drives me crazy. Why does management put up with that? What's wrong with that guy? He sounds so unprofessional and uneducated, and yet I heard him boasting-- rather smugly, I might add-- that he has three degrees. Maybe he meant tree degrees. All kidding aside, I think someone really needs to talk to him. It's times like these that I really miss Gene Burns! (Wendy P)

    1. So I'm not the only one who notices Mike Nicco constantly mangle words!? His pronunciation of the word: "middle" drives me nuts, it sounds like he is saying "meddle". He must have some sort of speech impediment...
