They should be feeling good about American capitalism... they just "shook down" Directv for a huge sum of money to use many of their local channels... but, I'm glad they are playing the National Anthem to start the day - they ought to follow it with the Pledge of Allegiance.

When I was a kid,local stations would go off the air overnight. I liked to stay up late to watch the Anthem played, to be followed briefly by a test pattern. When the TV screen went to static and white noise, it was time to go to bed. With stations broadcasting 24/7, it will be interesting to see how the Anthem fits into the schedule.

A wonderful idea. It's a 'catchy' tune. I hope it catches on in other markets. It should be played more than it is. It is sure to drive the leftists nuts.

Bravo #2. Same, #3. Johnny Carson, some other stuff, the National Anthem and Poltergeist buzz until the farm report. At that point I'd move over to KCOP channel 13 Los Angeles and watch Humphrey Bogart movies.

I'm not certain as I never stay up that late anymore, but I'm pretty sure at least one of our local stations, WHIO, still plays the National Anthem and "High Flight" at some point in the middle of the night. Trivia: The Mike Curb Congregation, who this College of Entertainment is named after, did the song over the closing credits for "Kelly's Heroes."

When I was a kid, this was a common practice. High Flight at sign off not so much. Since many station now operate 24/7, I wonder what time will be chosen as the beginning of their daily broadcasts.

About 70 years ago, all, meaning every TV station closed the day with the Star Spangled Banner. You hoped the sound was turned down low enough so your dad didn't bring a little wrath your way. That tune would wake him, or bring him to attention.

For those of us old enough to remember - when I was growing up in the 1950s and 60s, the TV stations always signed off in the late evening and signed on again in the early mornings. On both ends of their programming day, they all played the Star Spangled Banner. Remember the test patterns the stations broadcasted just before they signed on in the morning and just before the national anthem was played?

I remember decades ago when I was in Sidney, Australia they premiered the movie “Zulu” there and we got to attend that performance in a large movie theater. The first thing that happened when the screen opened was Queen Elizabeth was shown in a red dress military uniform on a horse, as everyone stood up as they played “God Save the Queen”. After that everyone sat down and the movie started. I never saw anything like that show of patriotism in any US movie theater.

Back in the olden times of television, when a high percentage of TV and radio stations signed off, you heard The Star Spangled Banner. Seems like most stations broadcast 24 hours a day. I don't know if any station plays the anthem. I'd like to see a major broadcast group play the anthem at midnight. Once upon a time a certain percentage of broadcast time had to be devoted to Public Service Announcements. I would think the anthem would count as a PSA.

Exactly the way it was #3 and others. It was a more quiet, more respectful, more love-of-family-and-country time. Hopefully, some of today's children will get to know the peace and security that those little patriotic TV presentations provided.

Gaffney, South Carolina — In the past month alone, Joe Biden has confused New Hampshire for Vermont, compared poor kids to white kids, and said he met with students from the 2018 Parkland shooting while he was vice president. He told an audience he wasn't "going nuts," after he failed to remember the exact location of a speech he had just given. And a story he told about awarding a war hero turned out not to be entirely true. The string of summer slip-ups would seem to reinforce Biden's gaffe-prone reputation and raise questions about his central pitch of electability. But for many voters who came to see him

Recent polls have shown that most Americans believe that homosexuals are “born that way” rather than become gay as the result of environmental factors. In fact, perpetuating the belief that sexual orientation is innate has been crucial to the gay rights movement. According to the most recent Gallup Poll on the subject, 88 percent of people who believe homosexuals are “born that way” support the legality of same-sex marriage, while only 39 percent of those who believe homosexuality is the result of environmental factors support the legality of same-sex marriage. So, what happens when science proves that homosexuals aren’t “born that way”?

Hurricane Dorian, a Category 4 with 140 mph winds as of early Saturday, is not expected to make landfall in Florida and instead will track up the coastline, possibly slamming into the Carolinas late Wednesday. Earlier projections had it hitting Florida head on as early as Monday. Areas all along the coast still are bracing for storm surge, heavy rain and dangerous, gusty winds. Other forecasts have the storm not making landfall at all in the U.S. A high-pressure system in the Atlantic is helping push the storm north. If Dorian remains farther off shore, parts of Florida may see only up to 10 inches of rain, significantly lower than earlier forecasts.

We all know that the FBI used an unverifiable document, the Steele dossier, to get a warrant to spy on Trump using the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).
