Channel 42 News is the highest rated news station in Circuit Falls and the surrounding areas. It has received several awards for it's content, including "Least Biased Station" "Most Accurate Coverage" and "Best Looking Anchor Team." These honors were awarded by the Media Fairness Association, a subsidiary of Channel 42 News.

The station has been criticized by flabby, unattractive people the world over for running constant fluff pieces of Gary Gears and his friends. Most of them reported by the channel's second-best anchorman, News-Bot.
