Earlier this month, CNN’s Brian Stelter broke the news that Sinclair Broadcast Group, owner or operator of nearly 200 television stations in the U.S., would be forcing its news anchors to record a promo about “the troubling trend of irresponsible, one sided news stories plaguing our country.” The script, which parrots…
The engines are already pulling away by the time we get to a reported dryer fire. There won’t be any footage of flames lapping up from the basement or smoke inhalation victims being wheeled into ambulances through the drizzling gloom—not tonight anyway. The rain makes shootings unlikely too, in Adam’s opinion, but…
People in Philadelphia were pretty excited when the Eagles won the Super Bowl. They rushed into the streets by the thousands. Many of them also put on a show for the local news cameras that were rolling well into the night. Some stations stayed on air all night.
The Super Bowl is days away. Philadelphia is still in the thrall of an all-Eagles news cycle that will continue until the middle of next week, if the city is lucky. A lot has gone on in the week and a half since the Eagles won the NFC title game—according to the local news.
Stealing packages seems like a scummy, straightforward two-person operation: One briskly walks up to the house, while the other keeps the car running. This one on Friday quickly fell apart due to an unforeseen variable: wet grass.
It’s our favorite genre of local news screwups!
The man has a point. Follow Klay Thompson and check out your scaffolding before you stroll.
Philadelphia media is awash with remembrances this morning of Roy Halladay, and rightly so. The late pitcher spent four of his 16 big league seasons in Philadelphia, including two incredible ones in 2010 and 2011. He’s a beloved member of the Phillies.
Distraught Dodgers fans waiting for their late local news after five-plus hours of emotional whiplash got one, final head turn after L.A. Fox station KTTV ran this promo, which celebrates a Dodgers victory. Whoops! It’s not like y’all aired the game, or anything.
People on the internet have been eating some kind of spicy chip and recording their reactions, and I don’t really care to find out more about why this is happening, but no additional information is necessary to watch this unfortunate news anchor barf after trying the snack.
It hasn’t gone below 90 in months, after all.
Fans in Houston watching last night’s Texans-Bengals game on KPRC missed its wacky final play—one punctuated by local hero J.J. Watt demolishing a poor offensive lineman—because the NBC station cut off the end of the broadcast in a rush to report the game’s not-yet-final score.
The San Diego Chargers are no more. The team plays its first game since 1960 as the Los Angeles Chargers tonight, and they will be down at least one fan when they step onto the field in Denver: Chargers Twerk Girl.
A suspect who led cops on a chase from Louisville to the southeast Indiana backwoods treated a few dozen police cruisers like Barry Sanders treated NFL defenses as he juked, reversed, and eventually ran around in laps before being corralled and eventually–it appears—kicked and punched by the presumably embarrassed…
Las Vegas Fox station KVVU’s Ted Pretty found himself assigned to fireworks-biz coverage yesterday afternoon, and the meteorologist’s interaction with a back-talking young boy made the clip an internet sensation. It’s all a setup, of course; that’s Pretty’s son doing the ownage, as is made pretty obvious by the…
This amorous couple couldn’t contain themselves after Nashville’s 4-1 win over Pittsburgh tonight to even the Stanley Cup Final at two games a piece, showing their love for, uh, hockey behind WSMV’s Chris Harris.
“PREDS HEAD TO STANLEY CUP FINALS!”
