Praise from a viewer
More news, much less opinions and editorializing; it reminded me of the old days of network news.
Unlike the rest of TV these days, there is no screaming and demonstrably less advertising and interruption.
It’s a miracle — a new network actually presenting the news!
Take that, FOX News and MSNBC!

Item not worthy of reporting
Given the annual press, radio and TV outpouring of requests for food donations for the homeless and hungry, it was ironic to see page-two coverage of Joey “Jaws” Chestnut consuming 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes. [“Hot-dog winners,” Newsline, July 5.]
Chestnut and the female winner, Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas, downed a total of 105.75 hot dogs combined. This is news?
This is an example of gluttony as a national pastime. It is sexist in that he receives $10,000 in prize money, while she receives $5,000. It is an acknowledgment of male-female earnings disparity.
This “Chestnut” needs roasting — not a page-two toasting.
