I knew Cantore had been caught in the middle of a TWC dispute recently, and I knew the weather had been bad for many, but I didn't realize he had made enemies that would try to attack him.  :rolleyes:  At least Cantore won.

No, that college student, which seems right as that shot was taken at the College of Charleston in South Carolina, just wanted to be on TV and get attention.  Who knows if he was even fulfilling a bet to do this stunt?  Some people just never learn when it comes to impulsive thoughts. :rolleyes:

I know, I was just kidding.  :)

TWC really needs to learn its geography.  A "professional" channel (as they claim) should not be making these kinds of mistakes. :rolleyes:

After an 'Autozone' commercial, the feed went black and was replace by the test pattern.. Odd.

During WCL, around 2:12PM ET, the HD LDL/Sidebar wasn't present with transparent TWC logo present as if it were Long-Form. This means all the forecast segments were zoomed in in the HD Feed.

When going to break at 1:46 they accidently rolled into the audio of a taped piece from Dr Postel. Very awkward sounding

Earlier this afternoon on the national LDL on the HD feed, the obs for Atlanta showed a Lightning icon (Thunderstorm), but the text said Partly Cloudy.

My IS2 was a little glitchy today. In the rundown bar at the bottom of the screen, the product icon would consistently show up lower than it's supposed to be. The bottom of the icon would even wrap around above the top part. So then, it would have to jerkily move up in increments, as if it were scrolling text.

watching the "Raging Nature" Tornadoes special, and i noticed, when they show a shot of skyscrapers in background, claiming to be in Oklahoma City while talking about how important the OKC media were during major outbreaks of Tornadoes, except, those Skyscrapers aren't in OKC, in fact, they aren't in the state of Oklahoma.

that's right, they used a clip of a helicopter shot of Downtown Dallas.  i should know, i live in North Texas and see those familiar skyscrapers on Fox (KDFW) 4, NBC (KXAS) 5, WFAA (ABC) 8, AND CBS (KTVT) 11 ALL THE TIME.
