After sitting down and watching the 9:00 PM early news (because, I'm an olster and fall asleep early), I just had to bring up a point of interest, to you, my adoring fans.
Do they go to some kind of clown college? Is there a code of weirdness that they have to follow? Maybe I just need to get a life, but honestly, most of the MEN weather people I watch, on any channel, are strange, wacky, and weird. Now, Steve Martin, I would love to have him as my weatherman to watch. Why, because he is natural, he doesn't have to "try" to be funny.
And while I'm on the "what bothers me about local news" rant, lets talk about the talk between the dude covering the "Breaking News" story, and the anchor back at the station.
Tonight's breaking news, a fire at the LDS Conference Center. Yeah, that could be bad. But the sprinkler system got the fire out pronto, before the fire department got there, but there was extensive water damage from said sprinkler system. Reporter interviews the Fire dude. Fire dude does a good job of telling us all that he knows right now. Even I, got it the first time. Reporter then asks the same question, 2 or 3 times, in a different way, but the same freaking question. I'm screaming at my TV, asked and answered, asked and answered!!!!!!
Meanwhile he FINALLY throws it back to the studio. Male anchor, "so, reporter dude, did the fire person just say that there is water damage". What the hell!!! I don't know, I didn't hear it the 3 TIMES ALREADY. Breathing, breathing.
Don't even get me going on the talk between the male anchor and the weatherman. I'm trying hard to get that vision out of my brain.
