Barring any unforeseen setbacks, it's official. R.I.P. WGN as we know it. Their new ultra-right wing overlords have already made a mutally beneficial deal with the Trumpsters before the ink on this merger has even dried.

Finally, conservatives will have another set of alternatives to that liberal biased Fox News.

That sucks. But honestly, broadcast TV and radio of this ilk seems like a shitty investment right now, unless you have live sports content, and even then, it feels like the `best by' date is approaching. To be fair, they got a great price, but in terms of news and influence, your viewership is already conservative and will die off in the next 10 years, and from a typical advertiser perspective, that demo spends little money. I hate this for sentimental reasons, but I don't think it should worry anyone.

Then again, I never thought Trump could win, so what do I know...
