CBS Interactive Complaints & Reviews

CBS Interactivedisability back payment due to father committing suicide waiting on payment

My father was found dead in his apartment on March 21, 2016. He committed suicide approximately on March 11th and was found later in his apartment. He had been working on getting Disability for almost two years until he finally gave up. His health would not allow him to work anymore due to his uncontrollable diabetes. He had lost half of his foot and was starting to go blind. Previous to filing for this claim he gave 19 years of his life to the Army Corp of Engineers as a Environmental Engineer helping construct many lakes in this area such as Lake Ray Roberts. He then was a environmental engineer in the planning of the Dart Rail System in the DFW area. After being laid off, he then went to work for Denton County Corrections Officer for the last 10 years of his life. He put into the system more than his share and was a good decent honest man. He worked on disability for over two years as his health deteriated over time. He started to go blind and was feeling hopeless and ended his life. As a nurse I know how to file for disability for my patients. His lawyer and the Social Security office gave him the run around and just took his money. His check was finally deposited after he took his life. The check was returned to the payment center and has been sitting there for over a year. My sister and myself submitted the proper forms along with a death certificate in August of 2016. We sat and waited for several months and followed up via phone. Not once did they state that they did not have the day of death. I then went to the social security office in Denton TX to see what was going on. Whom ever processed are claim in August did not enter his day of death. So here we are a year after his passing with still no resolve. I have contact the SS department on a biweekly basis to follow up and each time I am asked did your father pass. I am beside myself and can only imagine how my father was feeling prior to taking his life. The systems is backwards! I have contact Mike Burgess's office to assist in resolving this matter and we seem at a stand still. My goal in this is to make the government aware of all the flaws in this system as well as get the money that my father fought for and ultimately added in him ending his life. Please help in this matter.

      Anita That's why it is called abc interactive as people ask for help and the newsstaff should respond with feed back if they would or would not be willing to do a story on that topic. This board is set up for many reasons. Not just the fact that they are a one sided in there news reporting. Not one time e he I heard them ask the Democraticsame why Obama allowed the recording transcript with names be sent around to the intelligence community. Not one time has CBS addressed or ask why did the Clinton close there foundating after she lose the election and what happened to all the money that country's donated. If it was a foundation to help people then why did they open there records to show where the money want to as stated by the government. Why when asking for the information u derived the freedom of information act the Clintonnext will not release the information. Look it is like this even if you don't like Trump those quistions should be asked to the Clintons. Why is CBS covering for the clintons

    CBS Interactivesteven colbert

    I can't change the channel fast enough when this Anti Trump, Anti American # comes on. No matter who his guests are, even if I would like to see the guests, I will not watch. I do not condone his conduct every night attacking Donald Trump. Colbert and is disgusting. This show is not entertainment, it is a soapbox that disgraces CBS. I love most of the tv shows on CBS but I will not support this bozo attacking the President of the United States night after night. Johnny Carson was funny and worth watching... he would be embarrassed now.

        Stephen Colbert is convincing me to stop watching any CBS programming until he is taken off the network. His program is offensive and hateful and doesn't belong on television or anywhere else.

      CBS Interactiveprime time shows

      Why is CBS screwing around with prime time scheduling? Madame Secretary starting on the half hour instead of the hour? Last nite, Thursday, Pure Genious - same thing? You come up with some great shows, but you are screwing up the showing time. Blue bloods - # 1 best show ever, # 2- Madame Secretary - tied with # 1, Pure Genious #- 3, tied with # 2.
      I'm just going to watch other channels instead of CBS.

          I completely agree with this post about your programming getting screwed up on times, CBS needs to get it together with showing programs when they are scheduled and not running other show into them, I hate having to find other ways to watch my incomplete shows or I will become an ex-viewer, there are plenty of other channels on cable.

        CBSaudio noise and interference

        I am experiencing a loud humming vibration background noise when tuned to our local CBS HD channel. Local cable provider has indicated that CBS is having an unspecified "outage" of some sort, yet there is no issuance of a notification from CBS, nor does CBS make it easy to contact them regarding technical issues. This issue has presented itself for nearly 3 weeks and is only a problem on the CBS channel. All in home equipment has been checked, rechecked and rebooted with no resolution. Can't seem to get a knowledgeable authority to provide an accurate answer or solution. I am seeking a resolution and acknowledgment from CBS technical support.

          CBS (or it's local channel)loud background noise

          I, too, am fed up with the sound on many (Not all) cbs tv shows. When an actor is speaking, the sound is muted so we can hear the dialogue, but when the actor stops speaking, the background noise rises in volume and is very annoying. This doesn't happen all the time so feel it isn't our tv sound. Other tv networks do not have this!

            CBS Sports (Football)shannon sharpe can't announce a sentence

            I must say, after watching football this sunday, listening to him (Shannon sharpe), speak and not being such an educated person, since he can't subject himself putting a sentence together. It bothers me, that cbs with jim brown, would put such an uneducated, nitwit on the air brodcasting his analysis. It's quit obvious, he got out of the ghetto, but the ghetto sounds incoherent and uneducated. Give him some speech classes to train his mediocre brain to give detailed and experience thoughts on game day, november 11, 2011. Seriously, after watching him give his smart of the game, it's really bad. "

              CBSaudience tickets

              This is a repeat of a 2008 complaint. People come in good faith with their tickets to be part of an audience that CBS has no intention of honorinbg. I booked my "ticket" well in advance, drove to LA, left the campground at 5:40 in order to arrive at 7:10 AM for the 8:30 stated arrival time. I was told they were full and people needed to sleep/ camp (not sure whether in the nearby street or on the grounds) to have tickets honored. Yes, I am doing other things in LA, but getting up at 5AM to be scammed was not on the list of fun things to do. Thanks CBS for the memories. You send a reminder email several days before. Maybe you should think about a cancellation email, as proof of your respectful attitude toward your public. Of course you may not have any respect, as this is not a one off occurrence. I will keep looking ofr other forums, so other people will not get scammed.

                Cbs news comments public forum has a controller sitting on their website 24/7 with several nic names supporting himself while posting pro-obama propaganda. He uses the several nic names to support his comments.

                He also has control of the board and he will ban anybody that posts facts that don't glorify obama.

                This is an abomination for a once respected media entity. I can't imagine what walter kronkite would think of such a scam on a media that he built up for fair and unbiased reporting.

Half the time they are louder than the conversation we are trying to listen to. We realize background music has been around for a long time... But this new background "noise" behind the background music is very distracting from the programs and frustrating to the listener. If it continues we will choose to watch another broadcaster...

                      We agree - background "music" is very often loud and irritating to the point that it not only distracts from the program but makes hearing the dialogue nearly impossible.

                      My girlfriend has been complaining about the background noises on CBS which makes the conversation indistinguishable (which is the reason we watch and listen). Fix it ###s or you're not going to have any listeners to gouge the commercial buyers with. I already watch old shows on Hulu, which might be a good cure for this problem. Hook up your TV to a computer and have your pick of shows without the noise. There are hundreds of them.

                      It is not just the distraction but the type of 'music' (often it does not pretend to be music) which is often fairly jarring and irritating. I have just had to walk out of my room as my wife watched what could have been a good program. However, the unnecessary sound effects made listening to the program almost painful - it certainly rose my blood pressure. Ironically, it was about Tibetan nomads so why the screechy noises? Obviously, some people are not disturbed by it but many are. However, nobody I have asked has said that these noises add to the program - so if a proportion of the people are diturbed by them and the other section are not fussed, why are they there? Often it seems to be there because there are excessive sound engineers - when I watch some DVDs, the only image I get is a failed pop star beside an electronic synthesiser trying to make a name for him/herself. If it does not add to the show then why is it there? This is especially true of so called doumentaries when the 'evil' person or idea is preceded by dark music whilst the 'goodies' have much less aggressive sounds associated with them - in other words it is propaganda not a real attempt at portraying and objective picture.
