CBS "news" breaks on WWL 870 are so slanted it's pitiful.
At the 1:00 p.m. hour they addressed a total of two items: (1) the fact the Democratic governor Whitmer disapproves of Trump (no joke, this was the lead) and (2) Biden is ahead in AZ and WI because Trump exposed voters to Covid.

With all that's going on in the world, these were the two items objective, national CBS chose to focus on. No mention of anything else.

Downvote all you want, but do you think Democrat Whitmer's opinion of the President is today's lead story?

Same with WSB 750am out of Atlanta. Most of the programming is conservative, but the stupid, infuriating news breaks are hard left NPR type shite.

I pretty much quit listening because of this. No more 640 and sports no longer holds my interest. No more am radio. I listen to podcasts exclusively now

CBS Radio news used to be awesome. But when Fox Radio news started up most of good guys migrated over there, leaving CBS with a bunch millineal newbs. It shows.

Most AM talk radio stations are affiliated with ABC or CBS for their news breaks and it's all anti Trump propaganda.

Westwood One was probably the worst and most slanted. They want out of business in August.

Why do you even listen to WWL? With the exception of Sports Talk, it's a looney-tunes liberal bastion. I was so happy when the Condescending King, Garland Robinette, hung it up. Now if they could only send Scoot on a long vacation. They ask half-questions based on half-truths. So typical.

WRNO!

WWL radio sucks. Just a bunch of old white liberal men. They have no diversity or inclusion. They are all hypocrites.

Same situation here in DFW. The 2 major political talk stations (660 AM KSKY and 820 AM WBAP) exclusively air conservative shows (Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, and some "local" conservative personalities) because it's only conservative hosts who can garner big ratings which translates to strong revenue streams for those stations.

HOWEVER, the 5 minutes of local news every half-hour is a totally different dynamic. For those 10 minutes each hour you might as well be listening to Savannah Guthrie or George Stephanopoulos. If I'm listening, I usually mute the sound until it's time for the conservative host to come back on.

At 2:00 p.m., WWL 870 and CBS played quotes from Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden. I waited in vain for quotes from the President and commentary regarding the reports about Hunter Biden. I'm sure WWL 870 and CBS will get to those in time. They did, however, tell us that Joe Biden (conveniently) will not be heard from again until Thursday. Apparently he has to prepare for the debate (since he just found out presidential races include debates) and, obviously, a man running to be leader of the free world cannot be expected to mutli-task.

How in the frick is the fact that the Biden family is balls deep in corruption not the lead story on every news outlet on the planet is mind blowing.

Overall I agree with most of Newell’s talking points. I can’t understand his aggressive pro Bel Edwards stance though. Im not gonna listen to a RINO. WWL is shite. Podcasts and WRNO ??

I stumbled across CBS evening news prior to the bama UGA game. They were interviewing 50ish couple "during autumn apple picking season." They looked liked aging actors and spouted the OMB mantra again without specifics, facts or logic.
