A significant number of the "local news" items for my area (Lansing, MI) are authored by the Lansing State Journal newspaper. You are alowed 3 free viewings of news articles and then are asked to subscribe. If you do not subscribe, you can not view the news article. To me, this is not "local news" this is advertising. I hope Comcast is receiving advertising revenue for this. I don't think the articles should appear under "local news" because they are not really "available".
