KTVZ Gaffe Cont.

For those who missed the 10pm news on KTVZ last night, you weren't alone. News Manager and Anchor Lee Anderson was conspicuously absent from last night's broadcast along with his co-anchor Molly Hendrickson.

Station Manager Chris Gallu wouldn't comment if the two were being disciplined for off color remarks that aired during a technical snafu that interrupted Wednesday night's American Idol broadcast on the local Fox network.

Gallu said the subject of discipline was a private personnel matter. When asked when viewers would again see Anderson, who inadvertently expounded on his practice of hiring attractive young female reporters, other things, during the accidental broadcast, Gallu said, "I don't know."

"We're aware of what happened following Idol," said Gallu "It's an incident we wish didn't happen and appropriate measures have been taken to make sure it doesn't happen again."

Gallu said the comments that aired don't reflect the general tenor of the newsroom.

    For the past week or so, “Zeo” of the NW Republican blog has had his jock strap in a knot over the prospect of Congress repealing the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” rule. To hear Zeo tell it, if DADT is repealed and gays are allowed to serve openly in the US military it will mean the end not only of our armed forces but of America, its economic system and civilization in general.
