Here’s the simple reason that many tv news stations lack credibility in the minds of viewers: the majority of people aren’t stupid enough to believe the comments coming from people like the news director here. We all know it’s not about people wanting a 4 or a 430am newscast, it’s about the station increasing their bottom line.
