Re: WNHT's fatal error

WMUR, only got TRUST from viewers, when it stopped being an arm of the UNION
LEADER, that only happened 2 years ago, when the NEWS? Director decided to
run for Congress, He lost both the position and the race to the benefit of
NH Viewers.  Now they have an independence and no more arm of the Republican
Party affiliation.
