Going into Saturday we finally have a breeze from the northwest that will drop humidity and give us highs in the mid 80s. More showers around for parts of Sunday.

I'm watching WILX and the News Outlets destroying Local Lansing Businesses over the Coronavirus. The Psychotic idiots with the Coronavirus Ap turned on in their phone is most likely the cause for this. Hey, WILX, I promise you the Coronavirus Cases connected to Harper's, Leroy's and the Riverfront Animal Hospital have another connection. They all went to Walmarts, Sam's Club, Menards, Lowes, Meijers, Whole Foods and back to work for General Motors and their suppliers. What the HELL is wrong with you and the rest of the News Outlets? Is this the Public Service you are offering the Greater Lansing Area? Better question, is it possible the owners of Harper's, Leroy's and the Riverfront Animal Hospital are President Trump Supporters? WOW 1240 AM and 1320 AM couldn't wait to post this crap either! https://www.wilx.com/2020/07/04/coronavirus-cases-linked-to-lansing-veterinary-clinic-many-likely-exposed/ https://www.freep.com/story/news/health/2020/07/02/coronavirus-outbreak-harpers-brew-pub-east-lansing-michigan-covid-19/5363712002/ https://www.wilx.com/content/news/LeRoys-Bar-closes-due-to-positive-COVID-case-571524581.html
I listened to the presidents speech from the 4th. And CNN sure did cherry pick what they wanted you to hear to make it look bad for the president. How dare you Your station is getting more and more anti American and biased.

I was just listening, and your anchor said 84,000 health care workers in Michigan had contracted covid-19. How can that be, when we only have 56,800 confirmed cases of covid-19 in Michigan? Get your facts straight.
