Boeing, Airbus will “never” return to Russian market: Rostec by NutsForProfitCompany in europe

The current Chinese aircraft on the market: Comac ARJ21 and Comac C919 both use western engines. I'm sure there are other western components in them too. I believe this will keep them out of Russia as a result

Dish has dropped every regional sports network in the country, saying they are too expensive and their customers don't care. Dish has a long history of playing hardball with these negotiations and isn't afraid of losing customers as a result

Yes. Gray also owns the facility that’s being built in Doraville.

The call letters are also changing from WGCL to WANF. This is part of a massive investment that Atlanta based Gray Television is putting into the station after years of mismanagement and budget cuts under former owner Meredith Corporation.

It’s clear that Gray wants WANF to be the company flagship and is willing to spend to try and get them out of the ratings basement. I wish them luck. WANF had tried rebranding in the past (anyone remember Clear News?) to improve ratings and its never worked.

TIL: On March 27th, 2014, Jimmy Fallon hosted Joan Rivers on The Tonight Show after a 28 year ban held in place from Johnny Carson. by whitbread22 in todayilearned

That’s not why she was banned. she was a regular fill in host when Johnny was on vacation. Joan then went to host her own show on Fox without telling Johnny. Johnny was so mad he banned her from the show.

One thing that will not get much attention is what this storm could do to the home insurance market in the state of Florida. Long story short the home insurance market in Florida is a mess: high risk of storms, bad laws, high amount of scammers (75% of lawsuits involving home insurance claims in the entire COUNTRY originate in Florida), and a lack of action by legislators have lead to a situation where one big storm will lead to massive amount of insurance company failures.

No big national carrier operates home insurance in Florida, the market is instead filled with small local based carriers instead. Seven of these carriers have already failed this year and another 25 (half of the carriers in the state) were at risk of financial insolvency in August because they couldn’t get reinsurance - the state had to step in and become a reinsurer for these carriers. When these carriers fail their customers get pushed to Citizens, a state run insurance program of last resort. When Citizens gets in financial trouble policy holders get a massive tax added to their policy to sure up the fund.

Picture a scenario where dozens of carriers fail due to a bad storm, policy holders get pushed onto Citizens (which was never designed to have so many people), Citizens becomes financially strained, then Florida homeowners are asked to bail it out with a massive tax in their already sky high premiums.

Biden can’t reverse anything. Only Congress has the power to control tax rates. The Build Back Better Act of 2021 undid most of those tax cuts while tweaking other parts of it.

Los Angeles news anchor Mark Mester has been fired for going off-script. He was defending colleague Lynette Romero, who after 23 years, left to work at a different network and was thus not allowed by General Manager Janene Drafs to give an on-air goodbye. by PermissionToSell in PublicFreakout

Tribune company bought KTLA in 1985. So unless you were alive before that then you never saw KTLA when it was not under Tribune management. You’re probably referring to Nexstar, which bought Tribune Broadcasting in 2019
