Needs updating more frequently

I love channel 5 news and want to live this app, BUT...it’s so infuriating to see the 4:30am weather forecast still posted at 9pm. Happened again the other day. When no rain was predicted, but it’s obviously raining, it would be swell to see an updated report.
The same thing happens with news stories on the weekends. Don’t you employ someone to update news? Quit advertising that you offer the latest up-to-the-minute news and weather on your app. You don’t. Please do better.

Typically Biased Media

The app is fine, I guess I can't expect the highest quality from a local news station in a small state. I am sick of seeing click bait stories which intend not to inform me of the goings-on in Oklahoma but waste my time. In addition to my disapproval of the app's quality, I am disappointed by the biased reporting of KOCO itself. Their bias is quite clear to anyone who thinks freely instead of believing everything the media report. On several occasions, especially for articles regarding the police and politics (in other words, nearly every single article), I read the KOCO article, suspected the reporter to have only presented one side of the argument, did my own research on the subject, and found that, indeed, the article was heavily biased and fraught with deceit and half-truths. I feel robbed to know that I, a graduate student in the liberal arts, can do better research than several so-called reporters at KOCO. I suppose this is to be expected now. I gave the app 3 stars because, at the very least, I appreciate that it keeps me informed of breaking news, albeit with an obvious slant.

Spam videos

Some early 2000s tech. Even if my phone is on silent you can’t open up an article with without the obnoxious sound of a video or ad start blaring through my phone. This has been a disruption in so many settings. From me trying to read an article or accidentally opening the app.
Like those loud spam pop up boxes that would explode out of nowhere on ancient windows.
Suggestion: update so the video doesn’t automatically start playing. I’M LITERATE, and don’t need a video to scream the news for me. Or have it like social media where it plays silently and you have the option to unmute.

Side note: while the news provides a variety of sources (much appreciated) the local station messes up their headlines half the time. Be weary of the words selected for the headline and punctuation.
