Not really political, but I guess it could be so...

I have no intention of searching this, just commenting on the barrage of commercials I'm seeing on my local news channel.

"News Nation". They are pushing with ads to get you so search your local cable provider to find them.
Don't care, not going to.

My comment is, why do the 'news anchors' in the promos all look so pasty and pale? They must have 2 inches of makeup on. Zombi-fied death warmed over. I couldn't watch that even if the news was excellent and factual.
Just my opinion.

WGN America will change its name to NewsNation, moving to compete with CNN, Fox, MSNBC. The set of “NewsNation” at the WGN studios in Chicago. Nexstar Media Group is changing the name of its cable network WGN America to NewsNation, a major step in converting the channel into a full-time TV news operation.Jan 25, 2021

What America needs - another cable news channel with airtime to fill. Wonder what niche they'll go after.

It looks like they are presently less biased than most, but you know that won't last long.

I’m glad to hear they are less biased because last time I tuned into WGN it was right-wing haters.

I used to listen after midnight and they started firing talk show hosts who had been there for decades and bringing in right wing bull @#$%&.

Their About page doesn’t mention a change away from what they were doing as WGN. The homepage looks like a fishing exposition to see what people will click on from the mishmash.

I don't know if the sites I looked at that measure inflammatory language, etc. are valid, but that's what the three I looked at said. They rated Fox really low, so hey, face validity.
