Re: Lou McNally Dismissed

Firing "Altitude Lou" has got to rank right up there with
WCSH's firing of Bob Elliot....just plain S T U P I D!
BTW I agree that Jeanne has over stayed her welcome, she lacks any
credibility in the news sector.  I have watched them sperodically in the
past, and always check Lou's forcast, ( he is usually more accurate then the
new yorker on Newscast6.)  The management seems to be not looking at the
ratings at all there.  John is extremely crediable and should have freedom
to run the news dept w/o management interference.   I alsways thought that
managements job was to hire the best and then sell the time.
