It looks like "entertainment" to me. It looked like an attempt at humor. Seems to be the way a lot of news happens now. I'm OK with it.

One of the worst Meteorologist i have ever seen hired in the G.R. market period. A real joke.

Garry is the worst meteorologist I have ever seen. He has zero personality and is not funny. He seems annoyed alot. I think this rant was just an attempt to be funny or keep viewers entertained. It was just a stupid stunt. I guess it got him some national attentions, so definitely not a bad thing for his career. He is all around just a horrible meteorologist, though.

I guess on the positive side, no one has insulted his mother (yet).

So staged and forced to me. It was obvious that everyone else was either in on it or realized it was a poorly executed joke quickly. I can't believe that some many outlets have picked it up as something legitimate in the past week.

I must be the only one that doesn't care much about the weather. I wish it was like the old days when the weather guy got 3 mins and that was it. Just tell me the forecast and go away
When it comes to this guy, I liked it. Cant say I ever watch any of the talking heads in the morning, but I thought it was entertaining. Its just acting, anyone can see that. I'm sure there is some true feelings in what he is saying, but come on, its just a stunt..

Agree 100%, usually when I'm jealous or envious of someone, I keep it to myself or at-least don't advertise it so obviously.
