Help Wanted: Idiot

Are Jana Murrell and Veronica Todd having a stupidity contest?

That's the only conclusion we can draw after watching several days of KETV's "FirstNews" morning program.

What was the meeting like when it was decided to put these two dim bulbs on the same program? Is 77 KETV management's favorite I.Q., in the same way that 77 is supposedly meteorologist Bill Randby's favorite temperature?

It's been pretty well established that former beauty pageant winner Murrell hasn't a clue what she's doing. But we challenge anyone to either post or create a job description to convey what it is that Todd does at the top and bottom of the hour. It makes Channel 6's "Live at Four" features look like PBS's "Newshour."

You just can't make shit like this up.

hmmm..I hate to keep going back to this, but what's wrong with just a wonderful slice of beauty at the top and bottom of the hour. Personally, I don't even pay attention during the middle 28 minutes, I am just interested in staring like a freak everytime Veronica's person comes on screen! Darn, I must be in LOVE!!!

Veronica and Jana aren't that bad, although Jana does need a new hairdo. The biggest problems are John Oakey has them all saying their names first before thanking them. I don't know anybody in real life who says....Veronica Thanks, or Jana Thanks, its always the other way. And Andrea has a nasty habit of telling us what we are suppose to wear in the morning too, and it always involves mittens. And she likes to use the word "decent" all the time too.

Hairdo? Hairdo? You know who needs a new hairdo? Tracey Madden. Eeeh, it's like Mrs Brady bunch. Do SOMETHING with it.

I had the rare opportunity to flip back and forth between KETV and WOWT this morning. That "Hot Clicks" girl on KETV is a hoot. She was talking up the "Hot Clicks" and John Oakey said something as a follow-up and they cut back to her and she just had this deer-in-the-headlights look in her eyes and she said, "Yeah, just go to to Hot Clicks!"

But KETV did have their on-the-scene reporter in North Omaha where a teenager was shot. While WOWT had their on-the-scene reporter inside a health clinic in West Omaha and she was talking about Flu shots and reminding us to cover our mouths when we sneeze. If I were the Surgeon General, I'd be awfully worried about my job with this genius lurking in the shadows.

All in all, it made me realize how lucky I am that I usually get to sleep late.
