What Mullins, SC thinks of Channel One News.

 From Jim Metrock: Channel One should at least be happy that Mullins High shows their TV show “between the bells.” There is no before-school or after-school showing at this school.  What Mullins does do is cut 1/3 off the daily program. Only 8 minutes of Channel One News is shown and that means one...

What Dudley, MA thinks of Channel One News.

   From Jim Metrock: In past years, Shepherd Hill Regional High School has limited the showing of 12-minute Channel One News to no more than 2 minutes per day. As you may or not remember this was last year’s bell schedule: http://www.obligation.org/2012-11-12-2-minutes-is-still-too-much-time-to-waste-with-channel-one-news. The 2013-14 bell schedule again shows little love for the youth marketers of...

What Mission, TX thinks about Channel One News.

  From Jim Metrock:  We can assume few Sharyland Rattlers are watching Channel One or its commercials.  It has to be irritate the marketing executives at Channel One to know schools are showing their TV show before school and then on top of that to be allotting 10 minutes for the 12-minute program. What’s...

What Hudson, NC thinks about Channel One News.
