I am ashamed to even be on

I am ashamed to even be on here right now. I am done with WWAY from now on. Since the new owners have taken over this site has gone down hill. The whole station has gone down hill. I have looked at all stories on here and seen many people who dislike this station now. WWAY used to be my favorite news site and now it is the worse. I have lived here my whole life and I can't believe that ya'll report the worst stuff ever. Why mess with a movie star who is bringing extra money and a movie here to our town? The more you talk crap about him and his lifts Really? What is that? It has nothing to do with you or your station. I blame the station manager for allowing this report to even be posted or aired on the T.V. If you mess with the wrong people they can pick up and leave and find another town who is willing and able to let them film. Speaking from a person who is looking for a job right now You suck!! Leave this town alone with all of your negativity. We don't need it or want it anymore. I have time on my hands now to boycott your station and run the new owners out. We liked the station the way it was years ago and don't like it now at all. I am not just speaking for myself look at the stories on here and you do the math!!! Such a shame. should be ashamed.

When was WWAY sold? How long ago? How is reporting that Robert Downey Jr. wanting 3" lifts in his shoes during filming "messing" with him? How is that "talking crap" about him?

So you have time on your hands to boycott the station and "run the new owners out". Let us know how well that works for you. I'm sure that WWAY-TV3 LLC and the Morris Network, Inc., owners of WWAY, are losing sleep over the fact that you are going to "boycott them and run them out of town."

Best of luck finding a job. I hope your interviewing skills are better than your skill at putting together a cohesive argument over a story reported here.

To Taxpayer

Me ashamed NEVER. I grew here you must have flown here now you can fly the hell right back outta here. I have watched this television news reporting station go to hell in a hen basket for the past few years. They half way report stories on here and never give you the full facts. They get off on people ranting on here about stupid stuff. Posting a stupid comment over what he wants for the movie is pointless. If you go and look at the other stories about Iron Man you will see where they have talked crap about him. You don't think that what they say will get back to the movie people in general? It does and it makes us all look like hicks in this town. Wilmington should have never had grown this fast. The problems our town is having could have been avoided. But, no WWAY still continues to make people want to act negative. They report on things and leave out important information and never go back and give all the story or they also never let you know the outcome. It is sad what this town has to endure as it is. Everytime I get on here and read a story it is negative always. I am sad at how my home town has gone downhill. Schools here are rotten, people are rotten to the core. You never see anyone saying Hi how are you anymore. People here are too scared to even make eye contact anymore. It just does not help for them to keep the negativity going. Their rant section on the tv is just as bad. Have you seen it? When i was growing up we didnt have that. It was news and not ranting. Get back to the positive side with the negative that was what I was trying to say. It is bad enough that the young ones growing up today have to see such negative mess. No wonder they are all messed up. I feel sorry for society now. You obviously know someone who works or runs the station. I won't be wasting my time on here anymore. Wilmington Good Luck with the haters and the negative people. God Bless.

My life is complete...

Thank you for this information I was literally sitting here waiting to know how RD jr's height would be corrected for the upcoming film... My life is complete knowing he can wear lifts... geez guys you really must be bored over there...
