I have a complaint with Spectrum Cable. For the last year when you turn on the cable on it defaults to Spectrum's local news, which is run by such a far left agenda it is insulting to my brain, CNN has nothing on these weirdos. I should not have to be forced to even listen to the garbage. Spectrum needs to go back to having the last channel watched come back up. It pisses me off looking to drop them....

The weather forecast has been about the only reason I watched the news. I'm so tired of all the crap and manipulating of info they spew I loaded weather app to my phone. No longer watch the news.

Yep same boat here, I turn it on to watch the weather but then get thoroughly disappointed with how they turn every news report into political horse shit and its always Trumps fault.

Local news is similar to the crime report section of the newspaper. Add in the political bent to every story and it results in “who needs that crap in your life!”

I check sports and weather on an app instead.

I canceled cable TV service in 2013 and never looked back. Ever since all the big news corps bought out all the little guys and shut them down, it's all propaganda.

The web is the only place you can get real news, but you have to dig for it. I trust the research of an individual with nothing to gain more than I do any major network/outlet with political and cooperate ties. More people are catching on so they're working hard to censor what you can see.

The world would be a totally different and better place without television. People would see the world for what it really is rather than the false reality promoted through tv shows, movies and news.

It's 1984.

Haha I switched to Spectrum about 6mos ago and noticed the same default in the first few days, you can change that by going into settings and it will default to last channel watched, it's nice how they did that huh FNG A**Holes their Commie News Channel is like NPR. 🤬

As soon as things get back to sumwhatabbynormal I'll be switching to Dish, I can't stand Spectrum they have been out a few times due to pixelated screens as well as screens locking up, their equipment is JUNK !!

Weird. It’s a story on channel 7, the other channels all pulled away.

You guys saying you only watched for the weather, when it's available 24/7 on you phone are leaving out a few details.

I can get the weather on an app, anytime.

No way I’ll sit thru an hour of manufactured news just to get a 3 minute weather report.
