You had to see it to believe it--and if you were watching KTVU this (Saturday) morning during the 8 AM hour it was the official desecration of the once-honored Channel 2 brand. Gone. See yah later.
Claudine Wong and a host of other anchors, some on the set, others via video began mugging the camera voicing and mimicking pirate voices. I'm not kidding.
It was gruesome. It looked foolish and stupid. Part of some on-air gimmick because it's, get this, "Talk like a pirate" Day. Happy Talk run amok. Happy Talk/FOX killers destroy the venerable KTVU News brand.
Whomever is responsible for this travesty and gimmick should be fired --immediately. It is an absolute disgrace and sickening that it took place on the Channel 2 airwaves. Once again, Bay Area TV News viewers were slaughtered with a visual abortion. This is truly disgusting and an utter disgrace.
