    @No Doubt–Sinclair Broadcasting is very conservative. They don’t have the mental health disorder, liberalism. WEAR acts the way they do because of Uber liberal ABC.

    Better news, less political crap(like Marlette, thinks he’s funny) and it’s FREE! The pnj is the worst garbage news since CNN! WEAR is nearly as bad but what can you expect…….look at their parent company. Gannet and Sinclair, both belong in libbyland!

    North Escambia, Santa Rosa Press Gazette and Northwest Florida Daily News, are the only reported news you can count on. The Pensacola News Journal has gone down the tubes.

    I agree 100% with JLSeale. I might add I would not disgrace a mullet by wrapping the mullet with a PNJ. I get my news from NORTHESCAMBIA
