Am I the only one who misses Caldara's "Does It Work?" segment?

It was funny to watch him earnestly try to get some of those products to do a fraction of what their advertisements claimed.

- A broader spectrum of national opinion should be represented among the commentators of the network news, men who can articulate other points of view should be brought forward, and the American people should be made aware of the trend toward the monopolization of the great public information vehicles and the concentration of more and more power over public opinion in fewer and fewer hands.

Get rid of Liz Chun. She can't even use the correct terminology when she reports on golf. You would think that she would learn about golf and it's lingo. She's not very good with the other sports items either. I always change the channel when she comes on.
yeah, but i hear she swallows.

Mari-Ela is leaving tonite and Grace Lee just left last month. Forced layoffs again after a profitable election season? Grace jumped to SFO since she knew she was going to get cut. Mari-Ela could have been used to report Big Island news stories but chose to leave due to the husbands job?

I disagree with the comment above. There were no forced cuts that led to those 2 leaving.

Mari-Ela simply left because her husband ad a job offer on the Big Island that came after her wedding which was too good to pass up. Plus how often is Big Island News covered? Not very which explains why she won't be kept as a Big Island Reporter.
Plus if she was then where's the Maui and Kauai reporters?

Grace left because it was a San Fransisco news affiliate. It's a big step up. I mean if you're working to the top in news wouldn't you move from a top 60 market to a top 10 market?

The final thing that makes it not seem like cutoffs is this.

If they were cutting down why hire back Ramsay Wharton?
They could have promoted from within or moved people around but they didn't.

Everyone watches FOX News anyways, the local stations' "news" is mostly recipes, babies' birthdays, and washed-up local enternainers begging for charity dollars.

They should do plastic surgery on Guy Hagi's eyes, poor guy looks like he has a hard time reading the script. They should also try to fix his lips to prevent him from smacking them every time he finishes a sentence. The only reason why I stopped watching KGMB was because of this poor bastard! Where did they find this useless idiot?

So glad that Dudley is gggoonnneeeee! Shameless self promoter. Saw her at my wonderful friends funeral recently in the greeting line, showing off her new Baby & husband to half the family (haole side) in the middle of the greeting line...totally ignoring the other half the family (Japanese) confusion to the the rest of the people in line. If I never seen it w/my own eyes I would've believed it. Gross. I mean like it was a meet & greet for her Baby. Thought I was at the wrong function. Used to like her, until then. Made me sick. She lucky I've grown up...

The hottest news women as of today is Ashley moser, "period". Hands down, she's a babe! She is the only reason why I watch the news. Wheew, if I was a little younger, she would be in big trouble!
