By now, perhaps you've seen Al Roker's pathetic attempt to cover Hurricane Wilma. According to Roker, the real news was that he has been unfairly targeted by print journalists for "trivializing hurricane coverage" and for "grandstanding."
This was Roker's reaction: "I’ve got your grandstand right here. Stop whining. Just because your medium is irrelevant when it comes to a breaking story like a hurricane doesn’t mean you have to trash others who are out there covering it."
Roker also lashed out at Florida Lt. Gov. Toni Jennings (R), who had said she saw Roker on TV on a beach with two people holding him down. "That would be like me saying, I saw the lieutenant governor drinking heavily the morning off the hurricane," Roker wrote on his Web page. "Maybe she was. I don’t know that."
The lesson from this flap? Evidently Al Roker has a Web page. Who knew?
