    Thumbs down boycott TV Ch.3?

    It's a commentary but Tom Van Howe always seems to be focused on ticking off the majority of the public:

    "Its gotten to the point that when I read those stories in the paper or hear them on TV, I zone out. Its the result, I think, of a helpless feeling that with all the power and wealth of the NRA and the fear they engender in our lawmakers, nothing is ever going to change, that were simply stuck with the brutality and violence the status-quo has to offer."

    Yeah, Tom should have given up when he left Channel 8. He spewed his certified Libtard garbage there too. He's a has been liberal Piers Morgan parrot wannabe!

    Great to see that probably 99.9% of the comments were blasting him and his lack of accuracy. (Typical Libtard way to spew).

    Hey, I quit watching Channel 3 when they had that Idiot Jim Varney (Jeff Varner), after he gave a blatent inaccurate story on a Hero rescuing a lady in a store parking lot. He said the guy attacked the lady, when he ran off her real attackers. When I emailed him and brought that to his attention, HE LASHED OUT AT ME! I quit watching them then, until they had the balls to fire the jerk when he said "he would never work with that ***** Kate Tillotson"

    Guess it is time to stop watch Ch 3 and start writing the management again!

    I'm sick of news stations giving people like him a segment to spout off what they think. CBS has/had some old guy who'd do it and honestly I could care less what they're talking about. I don't want to watch the evening news to hear someone give me their opinion on things. If Tom wants he can go on a show like Piers Morgan to talk about this. Other than that get him off the air.

    Piers probably wouldn't have him
    My reasons to OC
    1. to raise awareness of the legality of open carry in Michigan
    2. To raise awareness that good people carry guns
    3. A deterrent to people so that I won't be targeted
    4. Because it's more comfortable than CC in most situations
    5. Because I can and want to
    6. Because it's perfectly legal
    7. Self defense

    QFT

    I thought that was a different newsreader (B.S.) at WOOD-TV. If true, I'm sure that he doesn't see that his blatant disregard for other's safety by driving drunk actually does endanger others. I can verify that Tom was drunk and assaulted a person at a bar though.
    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    Neither Tom's nor Piers' arrogance would likely allow that to happen.
