With the stock free fall, you have to question why anyone is getting pay raises. Are all employees getting raises?

Look him up. He OWNS the company. He's paying himself the raises.

And NexStar is losing money. The stock is at $.89. It WAS at $5.42

Sook is just creating a little nest egg like the bankers did before their companies failed.

Nothing wrong with that. The Repubs, which Sook gives HEAVILY to, have changed the county's log from USA to ME$A
