    Is the main news source for many back then, hopefully less so today-

    It is the ONLY local news TV outlet in the ENTIRE state-

    I would bet my retirement that the string pullers at that abc affiliate media outlet would go batshit crazy if:

    1./ Publically Financed National Elections became reality
    2./ NH Ever lost it's coveted first in nation primary

    I am biased wrt the second cite, cause I am RF in NH

    I also no longer watch that bile of a news outlet, and haven't since ahhhh...  2001?

      clear channel poll for impeachment was running 80 percent this month, channel 13 me.
      comments were front loaded with repub comments about eleven, the rest were all for 'hes got to go.

        IS a Sinclair station, I believe, and has been involved in more than one censor, or TeeVee hit-

        The NBC affiliate in Portland, WCSH I think,  is usually choice for the locals over there, at least the locals I know, which is a small sample...

        Maine would be even more blue if the wingnuts turned off their lying teevee and put down their portland rag paper, which is one of the worst with infectious, nefarious, half-truth pieces from the well fed conservative elite...

        The comments (LTTE) in that paper can still be quite ripe, and fly way in the face of whatever is acceptable from the editors-

        I am in NH most of the time, so these observations of local media do not occur daily,  and in the case of WMUR-TV, rarely if ever now,  so they might have changed their ways, but I highly doubt it-

      I have been known to turn on WMUR for the weather, but I honestly cannot have that channel on while my kids are in the room.

      Every newscast is fraught with death and destruction.
      If it bleeds it leads, so I get my weather from the internet now.  When the death and destruction doesn't occur here in NH, then they import a story from MA?  Whats up with that?  And I really don't care about the traffic down in MA either!  I turn on a NH station to see NH news.  I get better local news from the VT or ME stations.

      NHPTV obviously has some great local stuff as well as NHPR; if Lisa Peaks could just get through a news story without flubbing her lines. But I digress.
