Choke-O taco?

While grieving over the news of the discontinuation of my beloved Choco Taco I had to hear your announcer refer to it as the Choke-O Taco. It’s almost like she’s never even heard of the Choco Taco, your vetting process is clearly lacking.

Did anyone take News Reporting in college?

I get the feeling from these updates that someone said, “Hey, interns…here’s something you can do!” How does the reporter not know the difference between “further” and “farther”? (“Further south…?) Uncomplicated names are butchered, and voice inflection borders on Valley Girl. If it’s meant to give interns a confidence boost, then keep up the work you’re doing. If not, try harder.
