The WXYZ lower screen ticker this AM (5/2), describes the Detroit Police officer who was shot and hospitalized as "a 14-year-old" department veteran.

All of the good stuff on WDIV, happens during the 6 AM hour.
Rhonda announces.... something like this: 3 have been arrested (or arraigned) on the female genital mutilation situation and now, a 3rd person has been arrested..... She must have felt like an absolute dope. It's almost as if they're being shanghai'd by whoever writes their prompter.

Shortly after 6AM, the Wig on WDIV called Tigers player Andrew Romine "Andrew Rummis."

Good grief.
Donald Trump is a scum bag.

Not trying to be picky, here..... During todays 6A. Evrod reads the story about Trumps proposed budget. Although he reads that the budget will return 100 billion over 10 years, the graphic shows that the number is 1 billion. What's 99 bil in 45 trillion over 10 years, right?

Well, hacksaws or sawzalls are the best way of doing this. Every now and then, we'd use a torch. I used to own a full service auto shop....

Oh, holy cow. Rexroth is doing the weather, at the end of todays 5PM cast. He talks about the heat and tomorrows UV index. The freaking graphic says Thursdays UV.... The top of screen graphic before that said Wednesday. I thought that he was talking about next week. Nope. He said Tomorrow, with the word Thursday on the screen. Yikes!

On channel 4's Eleven PM News they didn't mention the passing of Adam West. I not sure if that's an lapse on their part or not, (maybe it just me.)

Another round of black this morning for nine seconds at 8:11 as Anu was just starting an in-studio interview.

Am I the only person who thinks this 6pm gen from 7 tonight needs work?

Father's Day story graphic read:
"Love For On Fathers Day"...
