Owen Conflenti Middle Finger Video: KPRC Anchor Flips Bird, HDTV
Some TV anchors are still getting used to the dimensions of HDTV. There is no better example than Owen Conflenti of KPRC. Owen Conflenti flipped the bird at someone in the studio during the newscast and it was seen thanks to the wider frame of HDTV.
During a newscast Monday, Owen Conflenti of KPRC casually raised his middle finger at someone off-camera as he read the newscast. Odds are Conflenti flipped the bird thinking it wouldn't be seen, but he failed to consider the new 16:9 aspect ratio of HDTV.
Owen Confenti did not appear on Tuesday's KPRC broadcast leading some to speculate that he was suspended for flipping the bird. It turns out that Conflenti missed the Tuesday broadcast because he was traveling to Dallas to cover the 2011 Super Bowl.
