Anyone in the Atlanta viewing are catch:

1) 6:00 news cast, 1st report by anchors, Center camera wanders up. Set seems to have fallen out of camera's view, and the set ceiling appears. Someone didn't call for a change to another camera, and someone else snapped up the camera. The anchors were a little shocked, and all they could muster was "hello there."

2) WSB Ch 2 had a live truck contact a live wire. The reporter and camera man were reportedly driving the truck with the mast extended and struck an overhead line. Both released from hospital today.

1) Robot cameras, automated master control... so what do you expect?

2) Notice to all ENG crews: If the trucks were intended to operate with the mast extended they would be supplied with sails.

Erected mast...

Yeah, but you know there were a lot of folks that were trying really hard not to laugh at those things!
