Weatherman Flips Out On Air, Yells at Anchor
Political Teen ^

Posted on 08/29/2005 4:06:44 PM PDT by ianschwartz

Ouch. On CNN this morning a weatherman flipped out when the news anchor interrupted him while he was giving the forecast. He threw the papers in his hand on the floor and told Carol to let him talk.

The chatter back and forth is cute - except when there's a serious weather event. She should have shut up..

Then again, I've never been a real fan of the chatter.

I think she was embarrassingly rude. What a self-immersed wench. She should be the one to leave; but...after all...she's pretty.

Particulary rude was her laughing at him after he calls her on her forceful, insistant interruption.

Very Odd. On one hand it's obvious it's more than just the usual chatter but on the other hand it feels very staged.

OMG!

Is Flip still in the biz? I hate CNN, but I remember trying to start pools in college: "'Flip Spiceland:' Real name or fake?"


He was a consummate professional, but the name was absurd.

Come on. I'm thrilled he went off on her. She' one stupid, self-impressed witch. I hope she's fired and not him. As a woman, I find her so revolting. And she was at her very worst when this moment was most definitely not about HER, HER, HER. What a witch.

Absolutely. This was just as the storm was coming on shore. I thought he was a great weatherman today. I hardly ever watch CNN, but he really was good and informative.

Wow, right on air. LOL. They're like 2 little kids having meltdowns. Date didn't go too well last night? LOL. I think both were unprofessional. How did they explain that away, or did they just pretend it didn't happen?

See #12. Not only were they both a bit unprofessional, but I have to agree with Kingu, the cute chatter works, except in a serious weather emergency. She needed to drop it the first time he ignored her and wait for him to finish.

Not sure where The Flipster is these days ... seem to recall that he might have been put out to pasture at a local news station, or retired completely.

CNN is probably putting together an investigative report on this as we speak. . .

"Hurricane Katrina: What did George W. Bush know, and when did he know it?"

I now have the urge to break out my DVD of Ground Hog Day. Ahhh, one of my all time favorite movies. According to the producers the annoying weatherman/star of he film had to relive the same day for a couple hundred years before his life really changed, and he became a better person. Not necessarily the best film made but there's something about it that I have to suggest it as one of my must see films.

I remember Barry Burbank who has been a weather guy in Boston for years was on channel 13 in Maine. One night he brought a 5 gallon bucket of snowballs into the studio and started lobbing them at the anchors. It was pretty damned hysterical.
