Citing what he called more than a decade of declining commitment to New Jersey, a congressman who is running for U.S. Senate called Monday for the states only commercial television station to have its license revoked because it abruptly canceled its nightly newscast last week. Now WWOR has pulled the plug on the only newscast the station had left, Rep. Frank Pallone said in a letter Monday to Mignon Clyburn, the acting chairwoman of the Federal Communications Commission. This action deserves immediate enforcement by your agency.
Pallone, a Monmouth County Democrat, is vying in a special primary for the nomination to succeed Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who died in office last month. He said he believed the current license should be revoked until you can place additional conditions on the station to ensure that WWOR is both based in New Jersey and provides local news coverage to the state.

So instead of 69 jobs in New Jersey, this stupid rat may take that number to zero, but it's a Fox station so that must make it OK.
Ya got that right!!
Palone - one of the architects of Obamacare
We Freepers need to stand behind and support our fellow Freepers.
As I recall WWOR took big tax subsidies to move their station from the World Trade Center to New Jersey back in the mid-80’s. And once you do a deal with The Sopranos you had better never go back on it.
