Stormy Weather(man) Update

The story of KTNV-TV (Las Vegas) weatherman Rob Blair’s Martian Luther “Coon” day remark isn’t as cut-and-dried as originally thought.

Video of the newscast is now available here (Quicktime), which upon careful listening seems to indicate that Blair never actually enunciates the “n,” Listing to the clip seems to indicate that Blair ran ‘King’ and ‘Junior’ together (“Koo”) before catching his miscue.

Also we learned that the segment was pre-taped, so their was ample opportunity to edit out the gaffe, which was not done. It appears that the weatherman was thrown under the bus by station management to defuse the controversy.
