Robin Meade is IRRITATING tv person-- FIRE HER

Just hearing her smoker voice ruins my morning. She does not even have a pleasant voice-- it grates my ears. My friends who are together with us in the morning all cannot stand her voice. We wonder why she ever was able to get this job. We wonder if it was...

NO CLOSED CAPTIONS/RITTENHOUSE TRIAL

There are very few CC's on ANY of their programs. They will start after the programs start and leave you hanging in the interim. I want to watch the programs, but I can't keep up with the shows. I HAVE HATED DURING RITTENHOUSE TRAIL, I could not hear prosecutor was saying!!! PLEASE turn on CC and make them stay on!! Just think, All the advertisements I am missing!! The regular at 6 P.M. are the worst. I have to not watch the programs. IN this day and age why can you get CC's that work! TY

User's recommendation: Do not watch if you are hearing impaired!! NO CC.s.

Complaint

On HLN forensic files the background music is so loud you can't hear what anyone is saying. It's impossible to hear what going on. Doesn't anyone on the production crew have any any idea how really bad the annoying music is or do they care at all?????????? Would like the show no doubt if it were watchable.

User's recommendation: Don't waste your time trying to understand what's going on.

Sound mix is bad. Dialogue difficult to hear.

Please fired your sound engineer(s) immediately. The mix is terrible, and dialogue gets lost. Even the commercials sound wrong.

User's recommendation: Must use captioning to see dialogue.

I enjoy How it really Happened, but why is the BACKGROUND music so loud? You can hardly hear what the people are saying.

I was hoping with the new season that the music would have been turned down, but that seems not to be the case.

No closed captioning

Original review updated by user Apr 12, 2021
Today, I was watching HLN's Derek Chauvin's trial from 6:00 pm till 7:00 pm on Monday, April 12. There was no closed captioning so I had to turn my remote control off and on again but there was still no closed captioning on HLN.. Lately, HLN is missing lot of closed captioning during the trial coverage. Please fix it right away.

User's recommendation: Keep closed captioning on all the time.

Important info on George Floyd Trial

It seems no one noticed the ER Room doctor was told Mr. Floyd was in cardiac arrest for 30 minutes when he arrived at the hospital. Why did it take the ambulance 30 minutes to get there???????

Chavin trial

The black news correspondent was overly bias. What a witch hunt, it's offensive that you call yourself news.

Disruptive Commentators

I find it very disrespectful the network continuously interrupts the testimonies of witnesses related to the Death of George Floyd: Trial of Derek Chauvin. Since this is the first week of the trial I have been watching it live on ABC News however my husband also recorded it on our DVR so that he may watch it also once he returns from work. Thankfully for the recording, we are able to fast-forward past the 3rd party commentators who voice their thoughts &;;;;;;;;;;; opinions every 10 minutes in the middle of the witnesses speaking. I find these consistent disruptions unnecessary & quite rude. I love how other stations are showing the exact LIVE view of the entire trial. When the judge needs to speak with the State or Defense, THAT's the moment when commentators choose to speak. Or they wait until the jury is on break to give their two sense & keep the flow of everything smooth. I am completely disgusted with watching the trial being interrupted and paused unnecessarily in the middle of witness testimony! Please do better HLN Network!

Coverage of Chauvin trial.

Every other network can seem to show coverage of the trial without running a bunch of commercials, every five minutes. Why the *** can't you?

User's recommendation: Find another network.

Disgusted that HLN keeps showing commercials during the George Floyd trial. If this needs to happen it shouldn't be as often as it is or for as long and the breaks are at the worst times. Tired of it!

I've explained myself. Stop interrupting the trial with all the damn commercials!!!! This is so very wrong!

User's recommendation: Commercials during trial.

  • I like the station except for the commercials during the trial

Constant interruptions

I was happy to hear that HLN was showing the entire George Floyd trial, but today on the 2nd day, they interrupt the live broadcast for 4 minutes of commercials!! It's ridiculous! 3 minutes of testimony and more commercials!! Really frustrating. Will not watch anymore...

I so agree. It is the worst coverage of a trial.

Every time you get into listening to someone testifying and you take a break with a dozen commercials! It's disgusting for heaven sake. I don't remember being this disgusted during the Casey Anthony trial or OJ's because of so so many commercials. ENOUGH ALREADY!!!

We are seniors and shut ins and wanted to watch this but are at the point after only 2 days to not bother any more that's how bad these commercials are.

I can't believe you can't stop them and especially at the worst times. Thank you Debbie Lehman dtlehman4@***.com

Coverage of trial for George Floyd.

Commercials. Really? I understand the need for advertising, but this is ridiculous. HLN made it clear about gavel to gavel coverage. How does pausing the trial for commercials make sense?!!
