Tom t one ,


Local station is good, seems they are somewhat better about reporting the news without editorial. CBS on the other hand seems very bias, I have stopped watching CBS morning show because they only present stories from one side. They show the destruction without telling what cost in jobs and property damage. I rarely see the cops do anything bad without being provoked and never emphasize that. I know there are bad cops but compared to the races that are killing each other, it is much worse. Where is the outrage over that?

Kens 5 fan

My name is Russ Anderson and we have been a Kens 5 fan while we have lived in San Antonio for almost thirty years. We have two daughters and family also your fans and we are all direct T V customer, and of course as you all very well aware, are not showing channel 5. I have been a business man approximately fifty years and realize our difficulty is caused by a financial decision on your part. We found another CBS channel to watch to tonight but we will certainly miss your ten o’clock news. I am sure if we start watching a different San Antonio station we may become fans and forget Kens 5. Please make the smart business decision and keep all your direct T V viewers from becoming as unhappy as we are. Yes it is $$$$$$.

Thank you

Thank you for your efforts to bring credible news stories to the public. Also for going against the grain in investigating situations that do not add up. I just want to say thank you for your endless and tireless efforts.

The only other thing would be that it seems like you have an unusual amount of new reporters. I didn’t realize the turnover rate was so high or maybe competitive.
