I agree with the local news, but have no desire to see the biased reporting of the old days.

Well it depends on your definition of fun.

At times it was fun. At times it was not.

95% of the time it was biased and that got old.

It is bad enough that the mainstream media is biased, but local news should be reported fully and without a one sided version because you happen to be buddy-buddy with certain people and it was so obvious that it was happening it was comical and extremely sad all at the same time.
