I just saw something that absolutely blew my mind.  The entire 6:00 PM news on WTEN -TV Albany NY tonight was accompanied by a soundtrack of nothing but unintelligible distortion/white noise.  I figured that it would be caught and fixed by the first commercial break, but nope.  They just kept going on like nothing at all was wrong.  In this day and age of downsizing, is this what things have come to, where nobody in the building is even paying attention to their over the air signal anymore?  Now I understand that the Albany/Schenectady/Troy market is much smaller than New York City or Boston, but I can't help but think that something like this happening here without any attempt to address it would've been unthinkable in the very recent past.
