Most are aware of candidate Hillary Clinton’s health issues that have been building with increased intensity and seemed to climax in her stumbling and being whisked away by the Secret Service.
Most thought that would be the end of it and Hillary would start taking care of herself better.
Few, then, expected to hear what this prominent anchor from WABC New York said during a routine broadcast.
McClatchy DC reports this anchor’s stunning announcement:
A TV anchor started his broadcast Sunday with a startling statement.
“Good evening,” said WABC weekend anchor Joe Torres. “We begin with Hillary Clinton’s death.”
The article goes on to explain:
Torres didn’t correct himself, but the broadcast continued on to report Clinton’s health troubles at Sunday’s 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York. The Democratic presidential candidate was dehydrated standing outside on the hot day, her campaign said, and video taken of her leaving the site early showed her needing assistance to get into a van.
The station told TVSpy that the mistake was accidental.
“During a live introduction to a story about the health of Hillary Clinton, Joe Torres inadvertently said ‘death’ when he meant to say ‘health.’” a station spokesperson said. “It was clear from the context of the story, the reporters’ information and graphics on the screen that Secretary Clinton was alive and recovering.”
Occasionally, we get to see a TV news reporter suffering from what might be characterized as “foot-in-mouth” disease. This was a gaffe that left more than just a few people stunned.
May people were probably startled by this “new revelation” and wondered what such a thing might portend for the elections in the foreseeable future. The questions are already swirling about who might replace her if her health fails her. From all the available evidence, that is a distinct possibility!
