Friday morning the Bay Area Fox channel’s (KTVU) morning news program re-demonstrated the stunning incompetence of local news services with the following (paraphrased) exchanged:
Anchor: “And now over to Bob with traffic.”
Camera switches to the traffic desk. No one is there.
Bob slides into view looking confused and apologetic.
Anchor: “Don’t worry about it Bob, it’s just live television.”
Bob: “Sorry, I wasn’t aware we were coming back to me…”
Then, from offscreen, not through an active microphone but loud enough to be heard, someone on the set yells, “Bullshit!”
