In today’s episode of “we’re living in the worst timeline,” President Donald Trump took to Twitter this morning, I’d imagine before taking in a sermon on Corinthians part 2, to call for presidential nominee Joe Biden to commit to taking a drug test before or after the first presidential debate to be held on Tuesday because 2020.
Nurses and staff working at the Doctor’s Hospital at Renaissance COVID facility in Edinburg have come forward to shed a light on the abhorrent patient conditions in the make-shift facility that include PPE being hidden from staff, ants crawling all over incapacitated patients, corpses in non-air conditioned rooms next to medical equipment, and at least one incident where a patient died after he suffered from hypoxia when staff accidentally attempted to provide him with oxygen on an empty tank.
After Tesla and SpaceX CEO and founder Elon Musk’s recent announcement that he would be looking at either Nevada or Texas to move his Tesla manufacturing plant, Hidalgo County judge Richard Cortez, of Precious fame, seized at the opportunity to publicly proclaim that Hidalgo would be more than willing to welcome Tesla down to the Rio Grande Valley, which would be, undeniably, a great thing.
I woke up this morning, scrolled through Facebook and found that a swath of my own friends (God help them) had shared a story titled HARLINGEN, TX: FUNERAL HOME EMPLOYEE CREMATED BY MISTAKE WHILE TAKING A NAP to which I rolled over and thought:

Earlier this week, KGBT announced that beginning on Tuesday, January 28 at midnight, CBS programming would be moved over to 23.2 as news broke out that Sinclair Broadcasting Company, who owns KGBT, had agreed to fork over assets from KGBT to Nexstar Media Group, who owns KVEO.
Understandably, most of this seems like it’s coming out of nowhere and can be a bit confusing for some to follow, so let’s try to break down what exactly is happening with KGBT Channel 4.
Leadership Resource Group, a single person consulting company based in McAllen, compiled public data from the US Census Bureau that shows that the Rio Grande Valley’s population growth has slowed tremendously over the last eight years and we can probably blame it all on the millennials because of course it would be their fucking fault.
If you haven’t heard, Edinburg Mayor Richard Molina and his wife Dalia have been charged with several counts of illegal voting and, in Molina’s case, a first-degree felony count of organized election fraud during an arraignment last week when KRGV alum and, now, Edinburg Director of Communications Cary Zayas had, probably, the dumbest meltdown I had ever seen.
When we write stories shitting on our local media, we do everything we possibly can to rag on them evenly, but God help me if it just feels like KGBT goes that extra mile to dig themselves deeper and deeper into the journalistic abyss, further from reality, public trust, and any respect.
