Blunders to the Power of a Hard Three Inches

An alert reader notes the ongoing technical glitches at WOWT:

I am watching the replay of 6 at Six, and in the middle of Gary Johnson's report on airport security, he stops mid- sentence, the camera pans out, then zooms back in, then he starts over again.

This is the second time in as many weeks that I have seen this. Last Tuesday after the "Great Snow Storm of 2005", we saw the second take of Sheila Brummer's interview with a traffic safety official as he was displaying the survival items that should be kept in the trunk. I believe you mentioned that.

So with that said, did they trade in the editing equipment in exchange for Jim Flower's new radar?

Since the hurricanes, recording tape has become a valuable commodity. That, along with budgets cuts and the 6 radars (isn't that similar to buying a big truck or a fast sports car to make up for inadequacies in other areas) means that editing takes a hit.
