    I don't even know what to say, except more of the same stupid sh*t coming out of KGTV...

    Not sure why a reporter would need a bullet proof vest to do a live shot, but I digress...

    I would honestly say something...but I don't need the FBI at my door later today.

    Previewing a stand-up...waste of electrons....and count Mendes as one of the crappy 10 latest hires.

    I'll admit I'm sort-of-curious. Is he doing a live shot from a turf war in Mt. Hope or something?

    Don't you love the managers who declare "Active! Props! Live shots need more energy!" That worked so well for that station in Greensboro in which the reporter decided to use the handcuffs. The viewers aren't leaving television news because we don't use enough props.

    It's a story about the Sheriffs dept wanting new vest, pretty straight forward story that just had to be "jazzed up" by a shaky shot sans tripod.

    I call it...
    "Mexican EarthQuake Cam".....the shot just wanders...and wanders....

    Oh, and Matt looked just adorable in his friends vest.

    Jeez. And the prop was needed, why?... I shudder to think what they will do if they have a story to cover involving sex or guns. Are they going to use props for those as well?

    And yet they wonder why they're in the toilet.

    If it's about guns....I hope it's not a prop. (emoji banned)

    This reminds me of that one time many years ago when Cynthia Newsome of KSHB got tazed for a story. That will seem tame compared to if this dude gets shot for a story. It's gonna leave one hell of a bruise.

    Did WRTV just get new graphics for the open? I saw the 6PM open and it looked blue instead of the generic white/blue/goldish color. Forgot to grab a pic though.

    Or maybe it's just a election day thing.

    In San Diego it's called The Now...
    Just ad a few red noses that honk...and some scary digital clown drawings that scare the mommies....just like The Now.

    How many The Now/ Cracked spin-off's can YOU create?

    Prays that this means the end of The Now
    Realizes that it's a false hope
    Learn the new guy loves digital crap so he'll probably try to turn the stations into broadcasted websites
    Cries

    I mentioned in the shoutbox that WMAR has a new vehicle creatively dubbed the "ABC2News Jeep Wrangler". Anyway it doesn't look like it's any specially customized truck from Frontline or Accelerated rather it looks like it came off the lot. The only customizations were some decals on the hood and doors saying it's a "live news vehicle" and they had someone insert a customer grille showing the Maryland flag (we love our flags here).

    At first glance, I thought that satellite dish was attached to the Jeep. :p

    Also, "Weather Wrangler" is much easier to say than "ABC2News Jeep Wrangler." Just saying.
