I tried calling Tegna today to complain but they no longer give an option to talk to an operator.

Maybe we should start writing to the station employees and suggesting that if they had any integrity they would find a job with someone who wasn't sociopathic scum...

That will make the employees happy to talk to you ....

I hadn't noticed that we now have 2 different threads discussing this issue.

He was making a sarcastic comment about my thread about being frustrated about times when I try to merge into a lane, then the car in that lane speeds up in the Chit Chat section. Like I stated, I haven't posted in that thread in several days since I moved on.

It is not going to do any good. Local stations do not have any control on what comes down from Corporate. They do not even have the power to choose the local diginets. What Corporate says in this day goes. Local Tegna stations are in the middle of this fight. I am sure they would love to have some agreement. That is what you have when generally all TV stations are owned by Billion dollar Corps. The only thing that will change the status quo is when losing the millions of subs "really" start hurting them in the pocketbook. Many people that want their Tegna station have either gone to OTA or switched carriers.
It will just clog up the newsroom lines.

What motivates you to treat people like that? Do you think the tv crew has some influence with corporate?
It will waste the news crew's time. Maybe this is the intent, like Tegna wasting viewers time. World does better when people do the right thing the first time. When they don't chaos ensues.

Unless you get a bunch of people calling at the same time, it won't. I guarantee they have multiple lines.

But how does that help? The news crews have NOTHING to do with the negotiation. I guess you call Dish and yell at the CSR when the price goes up?

How does it help? It's news that the viewers are dissatisfied and maybe the news should go do an honest analysis of the situation. Or not.

You can call DISH if you want, and people do. If DISH did something to screw its customers I'd call. I have, And I quit DISH because of it. DISH pulled the RSNs. That won't work for me. I told them that, and then followed through.

So you want the local news crews to do an "honest analysis" their parent company? lol Contrary to what some here apparently believe, what they're doing is not illegal. "It's not personal, it's business". And you miss my point. Complaining to the front level Dish CSR's will get you no where. Complaining to anyone at a local affiliate will get you no where. If you want to beat your head against a wall, feel free.

You can do what you want to do. Others can do what they want to do.

The guy that posted said the channels are not even answering now. if he wants to get through, here is a way to harass them back.

I've head your point. You like to sit back and take it and say nothing. That's your perspective,. This does not impact me because I quit DISH two years ago because they no longer carry RSNs. I called DISH a few times before pulling the plug. I gathered my evidence, and then quit.

We don't need to beat this up anymore. People make their own choices.

Actually, PP said Tegna isn't answering. Pretty sure local channels will answer the phones. I have no issues with complaining. But *I'm* going to complain where it's actually going to matter. If you want to yell at clouds, feel free.

Who said I was yelling at the clouds?

The guy posted and I told him here's an option.

Get over yourself.
