Monday morning local news has a trashed weather person

Post by grtvjunkie » Mon May 04, 2015 5:52 am

I just woke up a few minutes ago, and was flipping through the local news.
One of the morning weather people is so trashed.
Rambling, slurring words, etc...

For some of them, that's just their normal delivery : )

You're either full of shit or have no sack. Why would you even post this without mentioning the station? You think every ND in town hasn't already checked Monday's tape? #DumbThread

Not going to name names. I have been accused of libel and slander in past posts (Read: Lester).

It was an embarrassment for the station in question though. Even the news anchors were visibly bothered by this person's delivery on that morning.

It isn't libel if you clearly state it as an opinion. Also slander is spoken.

It also isn't libel if it is in fact true. However, if you are going to state it as fact, you'd better be damn sure it is true. Big difference between appears trashed and is trashed, name or not.

Did you actually run a breathalyzer on this person?

If I'm the "Lester" in question, I'd appreciate it if you would repost it for confirmation. Not sayin' I never said it and while I'll be the first to admit I can be blustery, a libel/slander accusation seems over the top even for me...

Love,
Lester

I live by a simple rule of thumb. If I think something could be slanderous or libelous, I don't put it up there in the first place.

Call me wacky (and many have), but I don't say I'm cool 'cause I didn't name a name. That would be like playing in a minefield because I think I know where the mines are planted.

It's late Sunday night.

I do hope the aforementioned nameless meteorologist is getting tanked in preparation for the big workday ahead. (clink) Cheers!
