This afternoon they had a report on Adam Levine's new Tattoo, (to be fair it was a pretty big tattoo, almost Henry Rollins sized.)

Somebody got their circle 7's confused... 7's Jimmy Kimmel preview tonight was meant for KABC in LA. I saw a World News preview meant for the ABC affiliate in Dallas once too...

Here is a WDIV TWO-FER!!

This morning, Evrod reported about mental health being taken out of the state budget. He talked about the "Profitization" of mental health care.... The graphic also read "Profitization". Who wants to guess that this should have been "Privatization"?

Also, they reported that Gordon Ramsey would be paid $427,000.00 (or close to it) for a 24 hour appearance at his Las Vegas restaurant. Now, the graphic said "$427,00. No decimal point and a missing zero.

What's going on? Anyone care to comment?

That reminds me of a post I saw somewhere in another part of this forum that mentioned how a Marquette station on one occasion aired local ads that were meant for a station in Montana.

Kim Russell's report as passenger in vehicle driving through snow took her through "BRIGH-innn"....she surely doesn't sound too professional as she ad-libs...

Also, someone from England who is staying somewhere in the far northwest corner of the DMA was being recorded by WDIV along US 23 near Fenton as the snowstorm was starting to hit up there and he referred to the region as "the Metroplex."

Someone must've gotten their "The D"'s confused, especially considering that he isn't even from the Americas...

Kacie Hollins delivery is better but she doesn't know how to say scores...

Pistons lose 89-102 doesn't work... Neither does "wolverines fall 61-71". Inexplicably the game in between she got correct. Maybe she thinks our team goes first no matter what because it's ours? What the hell was Dave Manney thinking in hiring her? It's like buying a 20 year old car with a blown engine and transmission and trying to fix it to run a race...

Poor grammar on the Chyron. Naturally, it was WDIV.

"Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will be debated last night...."

They never caught it as it just kept running and running.

An acquaintance in the Grosse Pointes notes that Loco4 reported on a man found stabbed and bleeding near Moross and Kercheval in GP Farms. The liveshot report though had the reporter standing on Mack Ave. near Vernier in GP Woods, dramatically touching the supposed actual sidewalk where a woman discovered the injured man. Except he was nowhere near the actual crime site, nor even in the right city.
