When reporters don’t know they’re on the air…
Never change, MSNBC.
After Sunday night’s CNN Democratic debate, MSNBC reporter Kristen Welker either could not or did not hear studio anchor Ari Melber telling her she was live and on the air. Unbeknownst to Welker, her mic was on, which allowed the entire broadcast audience to hear Welker feeding questions to Jen Palmieri, Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Director of Communication.
Palmieri called the Clinton and Sanders exchange “fiery” and then kept mispronouncing “substantive.”
Welker stopped after Palmieri’s first response to confirm Melber was able to hear their interview and then started from the beginning. More fiery. More bastardization of “substantive,” more MSNBC.
