Way tired of the screaming commercials of scam companies with “800” numbers. car dealers, lawyers, endless station promos, etc., I record the news ahead of time on my DVR. Watching online may be convenient, but you’re still screwed with 20 minutes of commercials (or more) per hour. My time is better sent than watching those greedy money-grabbers.
