McMaster Defends Her Turf

Signaling that it intends to defend anchor/reporter Andrea McMaster's title as Omaha's expert in stupid reporting, Channel 6 dispatched her to give us the lowdown on "Helping Kids Cope" with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Employing her best robot-like pronunciation, McMaster informed us that it is "im-por-Tunt" to discuss the events in New Orleans with our kids, but that we shouldn't show them pictures of dead bodies and such. (She invoked the i-word at least thrice.)

In her followup ("reporting live," John Knicely continues to parrot), she observed that some younger children may believe that an occurring anew each time it is shown on TV. What she failed to mention was that she very likely suffered from the same misperception until she had to do this story.
