News 6 is our choice!

News 6 is our choice for local news and weather. Weather on the 6’s in the morning, reliable and accurate reporting, and community support are just a few reasons we love NEWS 6!

Opinionated channel

I loved watching TV 6 growing up but as time goes on it seems the station is perpetuating a liberal bias. I want the news as in facts and truths and more often than not we are getting the station’s opinions on many articles. I don’t appreciate this. I want to decide on my own based of the facts and truth. Brainwashing is a big issue which I believe affecting all aspects of our lives. I’d appreciate the news if they stopped trying to influence us with their beliefs.

Yesterdays News

Nice app, but they don't keep it up to date. For example, they were talking about school closings for an ice storm that happened last Thursday. It was Sunday and we were in the middle of a snow storm, which was not not mentioned

Update- don't bother, great app but they have an ad flashing in your face every 10 seconds. Cannot read even one article completely without an interruption.
