    It's a minor point in your comments, but KPTV is a Fox affiliate that is owned by Meredith Corporation, not Fox.  That's probably one reason why they do quite well in the relatively liberal Portland area -- there news coverage isn't screwed up by association with Fox News.

    Down in San Francisco/Oakland, Fox affiliate KTVU (owned by Cox) actually has to remind it's viewers that they are independent from NewsCorp and that their news department is good because it has nothing to do with Fox News.

      or you're already takin' (or are ready for) the six-foot dirt nap...

      I thought they weren't just an affiliate, thought THOM (the house of murdoch) bought them up some 15 years ago.
