Re: “This Just In: A look at local news online and on the tube

It's easy to criticize people when you are hiding behind your computer screen, huh. Wendy Bell is a good journalist and a good writer. And I applaud her for being unapologetically authentic.

Unbiased reporting if I've ever seen it. All I have taken away from this article is you personally attacking Ms. Bell. Get a grip. Become a better reporter yourself. Attacking those around make you look petty and cheap.

You people at the City Paper always seem to take the easy way out - Leave Wendy alone - she's doing a great job -

Re: “This Just In: A look at local news online and on the tube

Looks to me like your a Wendy Bell yourself. Her posts are spot on with how WE, society as a whole are ruining are kids...we definitely parent a lot different than our parents did. Anyway, i guess you got your 15 minutes & gave her so much more. Now more people will check out her page & im guessing most will agree more than disagree with her posts...ect. Everyone is gonna hate on you, they will find something, anything to talk about....instead of building people up we tear them down & get more attention for doing it! You say WTAE should be embarrassed of her one interview....maybe The Pittsburgh City Paper should be embarrassed for publishing this article...But i will say negative attention is still attention, so thanks for putting Wendy out there i hope more people like her page because of your terrible article.

I love Wendy Bell and love the way she is on the news. It is one of the many reasons I only watch channel 4 news

I don't know who the heck you think you are, but you're not a "reporter." Get over yourself, get a life, and nobody cares what you think of Wendy Bell or anybody else for that matter. This isn't reporting, it's a personal attack. You have absolutely no class.

Re: “This Just In: A look at local news online and on the tube

This Just In: Frances Sansig Rupp needs to look in the mirror when accusing others of "Nancy Grace type" reporting. Did you play through her interview to pick the most unflattering screen cap you could? It seems to me you may be jealous of her 21 Emmy wins and 2 Edward R. Murrow awards. What do you have sitting on your mantel?

Wendy Bell is a good journalist.. I enjoy reading her facebook page and watching her report the news. I think its pretty easy to sit behind the computer and criticize others. I think you owe Wendy Bell an apology

Re: “This Just In: A look at local news online and on the tube

I love Wendy Bell's Facebook page. Sounds like to me someone has been bitten by the green eyed monster of envy. As for her Old Testament ways, perhaps if more folks were involved in their children's lives the world and family life would be a lot better than it currently is. SMH, some people cannot stand for people to be happy or have an opinion or life. Perhaps they need to find a life for themselves.

Re: “This Just In: A look at local news online and on the tube

I think she did a great job on calling these people out on their screw up, no one else seemed to do it. People always want to push the blame on someone else. Great job Wendy and by the way I love reating yur Facebook post your always to the point and upfront. Again some people can not accept the truth.

Maybe they could start paying them with tokens that are only good at the company store too.

Re: “This Just In: A look at local news online and on the tube

The way I see it "city paper" is that you are no better. This article clearly describes your dislike for Wendy Bell. So how are you better than her? And, how do you feel that your reporting is better. It looks like you've rolled in the mud. Rise above it. If she rolls her eyes and allows opinions to spew during a broadcast then let her employer handle it. That is not your place. If you don't like what she says in FB, then stay the hell off. Don't look.

Re: “UPMC opens food bank for struggling employees, misses point completely (UPDATED)

After their "employee food banks" prove a big hit, they can expand the program to offer "employee on-site shelters" and a "merit-based employee no-beatings program." Then we'll really see the community benefits of UPMC's vast commercial success.

Re: “Pittsburgh-area martial artist creates new karate style

Mr. Morgarts training came from Grandmaster C.S. Kim, but Mr. Morgart has also ventured out and trained with other Masters, Instructors and students from different Martial Art styles in PA and in other states (Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, and Muay Thai). He has also researched Kickboxing, Krav Maga, Kung Fu and Ninjutsu. Over the past four years Mr. Morgart has been working very hard to create a martial art style and has not told anyone in Tang Soo Do about his plan until he felt he was ready to announce it. I have trained with Mr. Morgart in the past and just recently. He is a good teacher and Master in the martial Arts. He takes martial arts very seriously and wants to teach students how to defend themselves, learn respect and discipline. One day out of the week he and a group of people get together and have a wrestling/sparring night. Mr. Morgart told me some nights they do not wear any sparring gear and have sparring matches to see how it feels in a fight. I am very excited for Mr. Morgart and his future in martial arts. I even seen online about Mr. Morgart being inducted into the American Martial Arts Alliance (AMAA) 2018 Masters and Pioneers Whos Who in the Martial Arts Book and Legends of Hall of Fame award on August 3, 2018 and I would like to congratulate Mr. Morgart on this major achievement. Can not wait for the growth of Wei Son Do Martial Arts. OSS

Re: “This Just In: A look at local news online and on the tube

I thought she did a good job in her interview with Rick Flinn. He was giving a lot of bureaucratic non-answers and skirting the issue. It's appalling how the turnpike situation was handled. As for Wendy Bell's Facebook postings, she's writing as a parent who just happens to be a reporter...no harm in that. She's entitled to her musings, and many people enjoy reading them.

Very harsh. Change the channel if your not pleased with what you are watching. Thewe are many who disagree with you. Wendy Bell is an excellent journalist with the utmost integrity.
