No Respect for the home team -
After watching the Cardinal game Sunday I stayed with channel 12 for the post game coverage. I could not believe that a home town station would have the nerve to disrespect the home town fans by showing the visiting team celebrating their win, rubbing it in the face of cardinal fans. I have never seen a home town station do something like that in my life. Not only did you show them celebrating you had to interview them as well, this is something you would never see in cities like NY, Chi, Boston, LA, not even in Seattle. I don't know who signed off on that piece but they owe the people of Phoenix a real apology. The Cardinal fans probably wont get because they won't demand it like they would in other cities, and we wonder why there's no pride in Phoenix like other cities. Unbelievable!!!
Idiots !!! STOP INTERRUPTING MY TV PROGRAMS by
I like to watch "Dateline" and it only comes on about twice a week. So, the show had just come back from a ton of commercials when BRILLIANTLY channel 12 breaks in and interrupts for about 5 minutes to announce that a jet fighter had to land at an airport ! big deal ?!......and the report droned ON and ON with the same image, it could have been over with in 10 seconds but no. The interruption actually DIDN'T HAVE TO HAPPEN AT ALL. It was not that earth-shaking of a news story. Why break into a TV program for something that is NOT life or death, NOT major news at all ? In fact of scared me, I thought oh no, what news will this be ? Then I got mad - they couldn't wait for their stupid news show to come on to tell people about that ? WHAT A LOAD OF B.S.

Traffic report -
A number of us that live in SE Gilbert use the morning traffic reports by Emma as our guide to the surrounding area. PLEASE stop referring to the 202 as such, and specify it is either the San Tan Freeway or the Red Mountain portion! Other than that it has great coverage.
PORN in the middle of the NEWS?! by
DO NOT WATCH Channel 12 News! I am still in shock, but last night, on August 30, 2011, they aired PORN right in the middle of their newscast. Start saying a NM officer had sex on-duty- then all the sudden, there's a PICTURE of it, right on the screen! & they keep it there for a long time! And they're supposed to be a family news station? I don't think so! What were they thinking? So be warned, if you have good values, I'd stick to a different news station- you never know what this one's gonna throw in in the middle of the news while you sit there watching... I still can't believe they did that! They lost us as viewers
I was extremely disappointed in your newscast last night. Mark Curtis was standing up there saying that it has been years since Wall Street dropped so much. In actuality, it has been three years. I appreciated how channel 5 reported it way more than your newscast. I think you are losing listeners and your EVB stuff is dumb. Let's just be normal and not exaggerate the story.

Sally Hoffmeyers Tragic passing by
Where is your journalism people? I never heard who or what caused her death? Was she hit by a car? Did she fall off her bike accidently? You failed to "report" the full story? You resorted to sensational journalistic practices of exploiting the emotions of the family, shame on you! We deserve better reporting, otherwise TMZ should serve as your new journalistic bar.

Lin Sue Cooney Coverage of Pit Bulls/fighting by
I could have missed it, but I don't think so......Why did the producers of the evening news elect to "dump" the distasteful, discusting and visually horrific vision of Pit Bulls tearing at one another _(right into the viewers faces) without a pre-visual warning, which is customary with responsible news organizations? As a pet owner, and regular viewer of your station, I was more than disappointed with your insensitivity to the viewing public. Yes, there is a sad story associated with "some" of the warped owners of this dog breed. But, forcing the visuals, without the pre-cursor warning, to your viewers smacks of sick, sensationalism by your news organization.
Sunday Night Football by
I was shocked but not surprised seeing the scoreboard of the NY Jets/Miami game in Spanish tonight. Enough is enough. How are the Latinos going to learn English when more and more media sites are in partial Spanish. I've traveled in every Central American country and the media isn't in English but only Spanish.. Futbol Americano? I don't think so. Give us a break. I know the programing decision is not made in Phoenix but pass this along to corporate. Enough is enough!!!
