Here is a classic example of an Anchor just reading what is in the prompter.
Yesterday morning, FTVLive was in the Orlando area and we happen to have WESH's morning news turned on in our hotel room.
The station came out of a commercial break, showing a shot of Air Force One landing in Israel. WESH Anchor Jason Guy was ad-libbing over the live video saying that, President Trump was just now landing in Israel after spending the weekend in Saudi Arabia.
He then went back on prompter saying that Trump would be, "spending the weekend in Saudi Arabia before moving on to Israel."
Ummmm....hello? You just told us he was now in Israel after spending the weekend in Saudi Arabia.
Guy was reading the teleprompter, but was paying no attention to what he was saying.
