I just sent the following rant off to WGBH/WCRB:

I'm writing because the first item on the WCRB 8am newsbreak got me so angry with you that I turned off my radio.

Go back and re-read it. Three sentences about the election, and not a single word that couldn't have been written and put in the can a month ago. With all the resources of the WGBH newsroom, you couldn't have come up with a single victor in all of New England?

I'm not expecting "Morning Edition" on WCRB, but I do expect the newsbreaks to actually contain news. You're better than that. You're the flagship of Public Radio. Please live up to the expectations of your listeners, members, and supporters.

Best,
