Great Odin's raven, the guy behind the teleprompter needs to be careful. Things move quickly on a news broadcast and often, like Ron Burgundy, a news anchor will read is on the teleprompter verbatim. That means even a single misplaced letter can produce undesirable results.
That was the situation Wednesday night during the NBC12 news broadcast in Richmond, Virginia. It was a terrible time to be in spitting distance of someone having soup for dinner. Anchor Eric Phillips lost an "r" from his teleprompter script, leading him to tell viewers they should "check their panties." (Spit take.)
