Hey, WTRF: When Congressman McKinley comes around for his free campaign promo segment, why don’t you surprise him and ask some real questions?

I’ve thought of a few gun-related questions if you can’t think of any

Whenever David McKinley (WV-1) is back in town, we can usually assume that local Wheeling TV station WTRF will give him a couple of challenge-free minutes to spout whatever he wants promoted. (See here and here for recent examples.) Today starts the second week of the House’s six-week recess and my hunch is that we are just days away from the . . .

How can you tell that Congress is in recess?

Answer: Congressman David McKinley shows up for his 90 seconds of free airtime on local station WTRF knowing that no one will ask him a tough question

Yes, McKinley’s back, this time telling WTRF and its viewers on Thursday what a great idea the Use It Act (of which he is a co-sponsor) is:

7News sat down with West Virginia Congressman David McKinley to learn more about new legislation that’s in the making in Washington.

It’s called the Use It Act, which deals with keeping . . .

This is why incumbents seldom lose

WV Senator Shelley Moore Capito demonstrates that small market media will accept anything for filler

Free television exposure

Politicians know that if you give small-market TV stations (the only kind found in West Virginia) any material (as Representative McKinley has frequently demonstrated, the news requirement of timeliness is frequently waved), the station will run it. This time it’s Senator Shelley Moore Capito talking about . . .

The good news: Finally, a West Virginia newspaper covers Representative McKinley’s vote against the Violence Against Women Act

The bad news: The newspaper is 240 miles away and no where near the 1st congressional district

McKinley sort-of explains his vote against VAWA

On Saturday, a West Virginia newspaper covered how West Virginia’s representatives voted on the renewal of the Violence Against Women Act. (All three voted against the Act.) Unfortunately for local readers, the coverage was in the Beckley Register-Herald. Reporter Erin Beck examined . . .

Why do incumbents served by small-market media seldom lose elections?

Here's why: “WEB EXCLUSIVE: Rep. McKinley sits down with 7News”

Silvrback blog image

The "WEB EXCLUSIVE" is on Wheeling's WTRF-TV website. (For some unknown reason, I have difficulty posting their videos. You can, however, watch all eleven minutes of the "exclusive" interview on their website.) A warning: there are no pointed questions just softballs that allow McKinley to deliver 11 minutes . . .

How does this meet any definition of "news"?

WTRF (Wheeling) recycles an old McKinley news story and then interviews the congressman about the two-week-old event

Some background: Congressman David McKinley questioned the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, on April 11. At that time it was news and McKinley received a great deal of local and nationwide coverage for his questions to the CEO on how Facebook was not dealing with opioid advertising.

Almost two weeks later, here is a screenshot of . . .

Is this the end of locally-produced, small-market television news?

The FCC eliminates the Main Studio Rule

What happened

TV Technology explains:

The new FCC rule eliminating a nearly 80-year old requirement that each AM, FM and TV station maintain a main studio in its community of license will take effect Jan. 8, 2018.

The effective date—30 days after publication of the rule in the Federal Register, which occurred Dec. . . .
