    Female newscaster has to do a package on going on an amusement park ride with David Freese, so naturally she acts like a giddy schoolgirl.

    You gotta love the commenters, especially her co-worker defending this piece of shit package.

    Of course it's red meat for a St. Louis TV station to ride the coattails of the World Series hero. Whenever I'm back home and watch KSDK, they seem to do a decent amount of serious reporting, seemingly more so than the stations where I live now. But they always seem to throw a cheeseball or two out there.

    Always like to put the shoe on the other foot. If a male anchor had gushed over a female hottie in a similar manner, the various women's rights group would be playing the disrespect card so quickly ...

    I'm embarrassed for everyone involved in this, especially David Freese. He's a good sport through the entire thing, but appears very uncomfortable.

    Definitely not journalism. I'm fairly familiar with the market and that show is not a newscast -- it's filler. Local filler where they can sell "value-added" commercial spots. ("Hey, if you buy a slot in our five p.m., we'll throw in a package for Show Me St. Louis on the house").

    This is the first news report I've ever heard that utilized the word "bestie."

    EDIT: Did anyone else notice this was a Gannett news organization?

    This crosses every line ever, even for a morning news talk show. Also, no, I do not think you're pretty. Your friend, on the other hand ...

    Just another fine product of the University of Missouri Journalism program
