VIDEO: Tasteless Punking of Brainless TV News Anchors Stunt of the Week

By Debbie Schlussel
I debated whether I should post this video of the brainless local TV anchors in Detroit getting punked and p3wned in the most low-class and tasteless of ways (thanks to Jason Brown of Public City PR for the tip). But I’ve decided to post it to point out, yet again, how easy the mainstream media are fooled into repeating anything they’re fed without using the tiniest of fact-checking, or in this case, common sense and brains. You didn’t have to be Einstein to catch this filthy prank.
And what’s worse is that I’ve pointed out how this same exact “news” operation, NBC’s Detroit affiliate, WDIV, has done this before, merely repeating false press releases (from groups on the left) as fact, as they did when WDIV repeated as fact the false press release from the Muslim-dominated, pro-HAMAS/Hezbolah American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee claiming that an Islamic charity, LIFE for Relief and Development, had been cleared by the FBI of all ties to terrorism (the local FOX-owned affiliate did the same thing). The group was never cleared. But WDIV never checked with the FBI, just like they didn’t think twice that there just might not be a guy with this name who just turned a certain age . . .

Yes, the prank is juvenile, low-class, and tasteless. But it worked because these people are totally brainless.
For the record, the brainless anchorwoman is Rhonda Walker. She works out at the same gym as I do and is a complete airhead. Shocker. (Her husband is former NFL player Derek Walker.)
Also for the record, these birthday segments are stupid. Unless the person turned 90 or 100, who cares?

Is Rhonda as stupid as Peter Jennings? Toss up.

Realize who owns WDIV–Post Newsweek Stations, that means The Graham family, as in Katherine Graham, the late (thank God) diva of the Washington Compost Heap.
By the way, one of her sons was at the Bilderberg convention in Greece. And yes there is such a thing.
Take it from someone whose state had a P-N TV station in WFSB Channel 3, now another major media outlet, Meredith, owns that station.

Come on Deb. You are being a little too hard. That is small time punk. How many times in high school did we punk our substitute teachers? She is going through the motions and her job is to read. The producers are the idiots to allow it to put in her script. She might also be an airhead as well. I don’t know her.

Sorry, this is still not as good as Bill Bonds’s challenge to Coleman Young. Probably the best moment in news broadcasting ever.

Well, I guess watchers of Oprah and The View would find such television edifying.

I was just talking to my friends, Buster Hymen and Connie Lingus, and they asked me to pass birthday greetings on to Eaton.

LOL…If you were catholic, posting that video would cost you 6 hail Marys and $50 in the poor box! If you were an executive at Government Motors, it would cost you your corner office. But, since you are Jewish, you got treasure laid up for you in Heaven!
Oh, on a sanitary note, make sure you wipe down the equipment in the gym before you workout…
Shabbat Shalom!
