Say what now?

Here's a new phrase, courtesy of Paola Giangacomo on WNEP's Fox 56 newscast tonight: "Convicted child offender."

Oh crap, and I told my friend's six-year-old cousin that Pokemon was a dumb cartoon!

Okay, you DO realize Paola doesn't write this stuff. She only reads it.

I never said she wrote it, just said it.

For my money, the most attractive anchor around with a good delivery.

Does it really matter who writes the story, the anchors job is to deliver it and do it correctly. Don't they read the scripts before hand?

If it sounded silly, blame the anchor. They have the responsibility to read their copy before hand, and they have the last word on style, because they are lending their voice to the story. Content decisions are up to people called Producers. Style or exact wording... that is the anchor's call. "Child Offender"... HA HA I blame the dolt who wrote that, and the anchor for not catching it. It's sloppy.

Um, actually Paola does write this stuff - or at least she's supposed to. She produces the 10 but usually just copy/pastes from the 5, 5:30 and 6.
