Channel Sux's farm-report-caliber morning anchorette Malorie Maddox, filling in on the midday news for Jimmy Thiedlecki on Tuesday, referred to Michigan Senator Carl Levin (sounds like "eleven" without the first e) as Carl "luh-VEEN."
Anyone following national news for more than a few months would recognize the man's name; he's been in the Senate for 32 years. That, of course, explains why Maltard had no clue.
Remember, they're the news you trust.
