Were there really "good old days"?

Today WGN-TV celebrated 60 years of televising Cubs baseball and even
did the first 2 innings 1948 style as the Cubs played the Boston
Braves. It was a big deal for the station.
Channel 4 made a big deal of it when they turned 45 and the special
can be found on You Tube. However the 50th was loy key and I think it
is because by then the station had become CBS and so much of the
history was from NBC.
I don't think CBS wants to remind viewers of Joyce and Lobie who
played so much a part of recent history.
There is no loyalty today as I have to muck things out as a contractor
and everything is on a 1099. Benefits??? HA.
But it isn't just broadcasting it is every industry. Look what
happened to Poloroid.
Yes the old days were better.
