KTVU/Fox 2: The Gift That Keeps on Giving


"Figi" ?

Maybe Fiji wasn't in the KTVU style book, at least on Sunday's Afternoon News.

How phooey.

  2. I must agree but if you want the biggest laugh set the text to on with the KRON4 morning news and you will laugh your ass off with the text goof ups. No one does it better than KRON4 on this account. None of my screens record any show's text feature but it would make a great laugh Video for a party.

  3. You get what you pay for. Minimum wage, minimum effort. Go hire a barista from Starbucks. They know how to write. They do it everyday on cups.

  6. This isn't just an issue at KTVU. It's everywhere. We're living in the age of texts, tweets and emojis. Most people under the age of 40 simply do not know how to spell and don't care either and I guarantee that all the on-screen news ticker info is typed-out by 20-something interns. Not to mention shitty pay and a constant 24 hour news cycle that demands "instant info" with no need for accuracy. Besides....nobody's paying much attention anyway. Who has time for accuracy.
