Michelle McClintick, Victoria Hong and Lindsay Schwarzwalder stutter and stammer terribly. Not to make fun of them, but you'd think the people in charge of that particular media outlet would do something about that...have them work with a diction coach or something. Victoria has been around forever and I do not remember her being this bad. Michelle is a nightmare..."um, er, ugh"...give me a break, she is not anchor material...and Lindsay, same thing..."er, ummm, er, umm"...and she laughs inappropriately, she is a NERD. Go ahead slam away.

I still can't figure why Don Postman is "allowed" to begin every newscast with the word "and." This is just a bad habit that the producers either don't care or are too stupid to notice. Watch...if he doesn't do it, it's because of my postings, haha.

You must be quite the perfect person and an English teacher as well my son!! I'm sure we could find fault with anyone if we are that bored with our own lives! Turn the channel to one of the other small town newscasts..that will keep you busy! Have a nice day!

Tricia Cruz has way too many teeth and her voice sounds like she is whispering. I can't stand her reporting.

who cares if she's deaf. she sounds like crap.

in this bidness, why would you want anyone who sounds so crappy.

the only reason she doesn't know it herself is because she's deaf.

give me a normal hottie and keep the handicapped losers off my TV screen.

Well, you're from Niagara Falls. So anything over 8 teeth is "too many".

michelle mcclintick is the absolute worst! some saturday morning just count the mistakes this woman makes. it's annoying and very distracting, so much so that I watch channel 2 now. her reporting from an outside area is fine but put her in front of a teleprompter and she's like a deer in headlights. I'm so glad I found this blog because for the longest time I thought it was just me!

Victoria Hong seems to be picking up her bad elocution and diction from her co-workers. We must all realize that Channel 4's objective is to remove all of their good people and replace them with whatever they can find that will work for peanuts.

Making fun of deaf people... Both of you are really low-rent. There must be an episode of Beavis-n-Butthead you can watch...

What you mean “LOW RENT”! I probably pay twice what you pay, being you are in NT!

But you being from NT, we understand you have too much “sawdust” between your ears!

As for BnB, sorry I’ve never watched more than 1.5 minutes in my life of that show!

NOW: As for making fun of DEAF people , I’m partially deaf myself, and I tell my wife all the time to look at me when she talks to me!

I also ask her, to call my name out first – this way I know to ignore her! LOL

Peace Out !
uh oh

I wonder if NT girls take care of their teeth? or are they like Niagara Falls ladies?
