So sad...

I’m very disappointed in this newscast...it’s so biased. Im sick of hearing the one sided opinion of your so called journalists...if you’re going to report on a story why not give all the facts, not just the democrat view. You say there is no voter fraud...there’s tons of evidence, you just won’t report it...I’m done with you leftist wannabe journalists...
