For sheer professionalism in TV news broadcasting Jacksonville’s First Coast News – WJXX and WTLV– leaves a lot to be desired.
Tonight, TV anchor Donna Deegan in introducing the Republican response to President Barack Obama’s address on health care reform referred to Charles Boustany as the U.S. Rep for Maryland.
As the film clip played, a caption came up showing Charles Boustany, MD — he is a cardiologist – and underneath his name – R-Louisiana.
Obviously, Deegan has limited knowledge of national politics, saw MD by his name and thought Boustany represented Maryland.
Good job, Deegan.
I am tempted to say don’t give up your day job, but she works evenings.
