“are you calling me a dumbass…?”

This isn’t Atlanta-media related.  But the fact that a New York TV station would do a live shot on a broken elevator in Chelsea goes to show that there are slow news days everywhere.  And that an on-air pissing match would emerge between anchor and reporter over the latter’s coverage shows that “veteran” journalists can be as petty and silly as gum-snapping schoolgirls.  At my old station, management would have severely overreacted to this.  The proper approach would have been to tell these guys to chill out and behave like adults next time, and let the viewers enjoy the raw flavor of New York news.
