Not finding the newest info

So I am watching the program live on my tv and they just mentioned something that I wanted more info on, so I go to the app but I don’t see anything about that topic.
Also I get notifications on my iPhone and when I select the notification, it takes me to the app but not to the news alert that I just got the notification for, and it’s not even in any of the top ten articles/links.
I’m very disappointed that what is being reported isn’t showing in the app. I don’t need to watch it live on my phone, I want to read the article or get more information about what they just mentioned. And I’m pretty sure it’s not the first time it’s aired either, since most of the news repeats from morning to night.

Good start but needs work

My biggest complaint is that if you do an alert on a story we expect the video on the page you go to to be about that story not whatever happens to be on the live feed at the moment. Yes. It’s nice if there’s a photo with the text, but if there’s a video link about a person arrested for whatever we expect the video link to go to that not weather, or puppies, etc.

If the video is to the live stream it should be labeled that. Thanks for this start though.

Too many ads

Too many ads and no option out. Deleting.
