It's hard to remember better 6-7 a.m. SuxNews programming than what aired today.
We'll let an alert reader describe this unexpected treat:
This morning I woke up and instead of the Daybreak news they had the live feed of the Today Show with a message saying they were experiencing technical difficulty but not to worry, you could see the latest news on WOWT.com.
So I hit the rewind on the DVR to see what was going on and it was just plain bizarre. They were doing their "normal" morning news when suddenly Ms Maddox announced they were experiencing technical issues and to stick with them.
Then you had several minutes of a WOWT logo before weather guy Rusty Lord appeared on the screen, sitting down, talking to the camera for a couple minutes...But with no sound whatsoever. Very weird.
Several more minutes of the WOWT logo before Maddox and Siedlecki appeared on the screen, talking to the camera...Again with no sound.
That was when they finally switched over to the Today Show.
Needless to say, they really outdid themselves this morning. And the sad part is that every single one of them will still be on the job tomorrow morning.
As far as we're concerned, they can air the first hour of "Today" twice a day, every day. If we're to be subjected to the same program two hours in a row, we'd much rather watch a professional operation than the self-absorbed, lithping, diction-challenged nitwits from the local outfit.
