Why is it that 2 lawsuits against FWCS/BOARD has already been settled,but the Elmhurst lawsuit with the SAVE EHS group who is fighting for their rights according to the "PUBLIC LAW ACT 221 & FEDERAL LAW hasn't been heard in a court of law???

As far as your news,its getting really bad. With Melisa Long, you might as well be watching Fox News. I think the staff is terrified of her and her husband. Her husband uses 21 news and Melisa to push his sad republican agenda.

To Obama's Yes Man,
America's teachers are doing an outstanding job. However, when we are dealing with children who aren't taught the basics at home and who are lucky to even be fed, we can only do so much. PARENTS need to be held accountable!
Keith says ... on Thursday, Nov 1 at 5:20 PM
How can you let Melissa Long do reports on anything that has to do with any election? She is so biased to the Republican party because of her husband. Am I the only one watching her reports that sees this? Get her off till after the election please.

Why do they introduce laws such as lower BAC and tell the public it's to "protect" us and yet fail to mention they haven't thought of a way to fund the long term costs? Instead they would rather further burden us after we support their "good idea."

Why do you need to interrupt a show for a thunderstorm? Tornadoes OK. But a freakin' RSI storm that usually doesn't even amount to anything if it happens at all. You always manage to show all the advertisements though.

Why isn't Corrine Rose on Insight?? She was very good and had on more people than she was related to or friends with. Emilie and her every other word being "Uh" and the who cares opinions from Charity are annoying!!! Put Corrine back on!!!!!!!
21 alive fan says ... on Friday, Aug 9 at 5:23 AM
The morning news is rediculous with Linda. All she does is laugh and act fake. You would think management would ask her to tame it down a bit.
Beth says ... on Monday, Aug 19 at 4:05 PM
I agree with the comments regarding the morning show;Linda Jackson and Eric Olson act childish. It's really sad if this is the best you got.

Linda Jackson needs a makeup make over, everytime i see her all i can think of is the old cartoon character Gumby, watching his fake lips move, with Linda's dark lipstick she looks just like him. Can't stand to watch her with out laughing

On your 21.3 weather channel, the AD banner at top left (Parview Health/VIPIR HD RADAR) is ALWAYS blocking Northern Indiana so we cannot see what's heading our way....This is even more frustrating when there are weather warnings.
Greta says ... on Wednesday, Sep 4 at 8:38 PM
I've tried to watch your morning show and it's a joke. Eric Olsen is about as entertaining as watching pain dry.....Linda Jackson is so fake and tries way to hard to be funny. Then you have Melissa Long who is the old flirt that needs to retire!
Don says ... on Wednesday, Sep 4 at 8:48 PM
I'd rather watch the 2 goof balls in the morning, than have to watch Melissa Long drool all over Curtis Smith with her fake laugh. Get a room Melissa!
Tony says ... on Thursday, Sep 12 at 12:04 AM
Leave Linda Jackson alone, my wife and I have met her and she is a genuinely nice and caring person. Does she have flaws; name someone who doesn't. the only idiots here are those who hide behind a blog in order to bad mouth someone else.
Mike says ... on Thursday, Sep 12 at 11:29 PM
More laughing by Melissa Long..Like the other guy said, maybe she needs to just get a room with Curtis, but her constant laughing when she is trying to report the news...just has gotten old..Bring on the new girl, hopefully she will act more pro..
John says ... on Friday, Sep 13 at 9:01 PM
"Indian Summer" is like "Indian Giver": A racist term from another age. Melissa Long.It's rude and unprofessional to use in public setting. Please let's not use such terms gin on-air,shall we?

The event TWO MILLION BIKERS TO DC has taught us the truth of this.

What is the deal with all the negative comments on here? Keep your juvenile thoughts to your self! No one wants to hear them! Watch another station if you do not like the people on this one...or better yet, grow some balls and try to do it yourself!

Teresa Smith says ... on Thursday, Oct 31 at 10:23 AM
Over the past 2 days cities across the Midwest have cancelled. Trick or treat and have rescheduled for Friday. Here in Fort Wayne we are showing that our elected officials have a lack of leadership. Change the day to Friday!
Linda Davis says ... on Friday, Nov 1 at 9:47 AM
Back in the day, trick/treating was for 2-3 days. Some years it rained or even snowed and sleeted. Did it stop us? No. Did our parents try to get the days switched? No. Did we let bad weather come between us and our candy? No. Quit pampering kids.

tom says ... on Sunday, Nov 17 at 5:16 PM
Everytime we have bad weather, someone starts "playing" with the picture on 21.3 making it impossible to track weather; very annoying. You have better radar, but I am forced to watch 15.3.
Kim says ... on Sunday, Nov 24 at 7:21 PM
You reported that Derek Franz died on Hoagland AVENUE, if you would come out into the county a little more you would know that there is a Hoagland town as well as a Hoagland ROAD, which is where Derek had his accident and unfortunately died.

You people are so unprofessional. Rookies. And your news humor stinks too. And I totally agree with Keith, in the other comment earlier, about Melissa Long and being so biased because of her politician husband she has. It is so obvious.
colt says ... on Wednesday, Nov 27 at 7:43 AM
I'm glad that the kitten and Scott are the only ones that like watching this channel for news. Even though it is a local news station, they seem to report more about national stories then the local ones. And I agree, Linda Jackson is fake.

The weather is dangerous. I think TV reporters need to make this clear. It seems to be sort of downplayed. Nobody has any business being outside today. WANE TV talked about taking care of animals. What about the little children? Nobody should be out.

But rather a comment at a professional level; Linda and Eric have to go. I literally change the channel to national news several days a week to avoid them. We are a conservative thinking community and deserve like minded newscaster
Jason says ... on Wednesday, Apr 16 at 6:07 AM
Just listening to Eric and Linda with Charlie Butcher. I wonder if they realize the investments they speak of, have already been taxed once? Surely they can't be that ignorant at a professional level? Think I'll start changing the station...
