Palestinians Take Over WOWT Control Room?

Scrolling headline during WOWT's Sunday morning newscast: "DOCTORS: ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER ARIEL SHARON IS 'NO IMMEDIATE DANGER' FOLLOWING EMERGENCY SURGERY."

Speaking of the Big Six's weekend morning...

• Anchor Andrea McMaster, whose symptoms of idiocy seemed to be in remission during her first two weeks back from maternity leave, appears to be backsliding. For one thing, she's returned to over-enunciating (and emphasizing) the Ts and Ds in most words. Then there are the stupid remarks: on Sunday morning, for example, she urged those going to the station's website to "click on the word 'Reminders Board.'" Counting must not be her strong suit.

• Did we mention that she pronounces the word recognize "RECK-uh-nize"?

• Sunday morning also brought us another item to add to the list of stories soporific reporter Gary Smollen should not be allowed to cover, lest he be mistaken for the thing he's covering: sludge scraped out of a Henry Doorly Zoo pond.
