Whenever I mention the word “ombudsman” to anyone in terms of what it means for social media, there are always some who don’t know what it is, so I should get that out of the way: From Wikipedia: An ombudsman (conventional English plural: ombudsmen) is a person who acts as a trusted intermediary between an organization and some internal or external constituency…...
Although this anchorman should have been able to space the intro and the headlines better, it’s important for the teleprompter to have proper punctuation. This is Ken Bastida of KPIX, a CBS affiliate in the San Francisco Bay Area market, but maybe after this flub he should move down to the San Diego area because...
I feel like watching my local news programs is like hanging out with my grandparents. You would think these people grew up in the 1940’s and never got with the times. The easily noticed errors and blunders just slip right by them. They seem so clueless at times. I wonder how they get by in...
Somehow yet another huge blunder has gotten by the producers of a local news program. The people over at Greenbay’s NBC 26 need to do a little better with their image gathering. My guess is that some intern went quickly to Google Images, nabbed the first photo that looked right for the piece (without giving...
This reporter for FOX News might want to reconsider his wording for this particular story. Seems almost like he snuck that one in on purpose. What do you think? It still blows me away, all the errors and blunders that are made by professional news journalists. You’d imagine that with being on live TV every...
With FOX News constantly getting lambasted for allegedly being biased and not necessarily telling the truth, they’ve started a new policy to be more honest. In one of their first forays down this road, they’ve added captions of exactly what the guest and host are saying…and here is a screencap of that. Looks just about...
Sometimes I wonder about the people who produce these television shows. Maybe it’s because a lot of them are in the morning and they haven’t quite woken up yet. It seems like there are a lot of errors of this type.
Well I had a meeting to attend in Newark but I think I’ll be skipping that. Looks like Accuweather isn’t so accurate after all.
Some times being a news interviewer can be tough. You’ve got the normal challenges of being live on camera, reading from teleprompters and listening to the producer direct you through the earpiece. These things can be practised and learned to do with ease. But even the best can get thrown off by a tough guest....
When I grab a biscotti for my morning meal I like to enjoy it with a hot cup of coffee. There really is nothing else like it. I couldn’t imagine having anything else with it. Nancy from Sparkle Markets seems to differ on this. I’ve heard some bad Freudian Slips before, but this may be...
