WCCO airs bizarre Ted Stevens obituary

RIP Ted Stevens, from WCCO

RIP Ted Stevens, from WCCO

We've all seen times local television channels experiences technical difficulties during a live broadcast, but last night's 10 o'clock news on WCCO featured an especially cringeworthy gaffe.

During a somber story about the death of Former Sen. Ted Stevens in a plane crash, the station abruptly cut in with what at first looked like a breaking election bulletin.

Instead, it was a high-energy promo featuring swimsuit-clad anchors and explosions.


We're guessing the James Bond spoof would have been a lot cuter if it wasn't juxtaposed with the fiery plane crash that claimed five lives.
