    Global is not much different than CTV or CBC, all television new has become laughable. At best it is a stab/death report and at worst it is flat out propaganda.

      I think a few people know my opinion of Global on here.

      What I'd like to see is a return to boring old unbiased news. I know they have to fight for ratings like any other tv shows but really oversensationalization (long word) runs rampant lately just so they can draw viewers.

        Hear Hear! I thought it was just me that couldn't stand her. And I agree - lately their news has been very lame; I wonder if they have staffing problems. CTV has improved a lot over the years - it's fast paced, tight, and relevant. At least for the first 10 minutes. After that, it's the CBC or a sit-com for me. CBC's weather lady has my vote for the most accurate forecast and she is not annoying like that Global lady.

          I miss having Claire Martin who used to be Globa's weather lady... now she forcasts for the CBC on the National.

            Claire has moved to CBC Vancouver. I have to disagree with comments about Nicola Crosbie @ Global. At least she has some personality and adds some levity into her weather presentations. On the other hand I can't stand Josh Klassen on CTV.

              Yes, I know... She gives the forecast for the National newscast on the CBC.

                  Good thread. I am also finding Global News more of a "magazine" style of broadcast. I watch the news to get news, important information not trivia. I take my news very seriously and will take up some suggestions here. Tonight I will watch CBC News at 6pm and tomorrow I'll watch CTV.

                  PS Actually I think Nicola on Global is doing a good job with the weather. She was very nervous at first when Clare left but she is much more comfortable now.
                  We are all the same, just different...

                    I am not really fond of any of them instead of just reporting the news, they want to be the news! When something happens, they bring out every professor/or authority on the subject. I like to have news breaks.

                      I wish Global would go back to half hour news! I hate how they drag it out for two full hours now.

                      ahh the gold old days news then a half hour of MASH!

                        She is also noted for her brief appearance in Pink Floyd's movie, The Wall. She can be seen (ever so briefly) as part of the children's choir singing back-up on the song, Another Brick in the Wall - Part 2.

                            Watched CBC tonight and the news was better than Global. There was one anchor and therefore no personal interaction between anchors, which I liked. Tomorrow CTV....

                                Just about every full length story on Global Morning News is a Calgary story. I'm close to shutting off this stupid show for good and stick to reading the paper.
