Was CBS Reporter Serene Branson Secretly Microwaved?

Good Morning America reporter John Berman had a lot of fun today with crazy speculation being floated around the Internet by conspiracy theorists. Namely, that local CBS 2 reporter Serene Branson‘s infamous live Grammy report flub was the result of a top secret U.S. government microwave brain ray experiment.

These conspiracy theorists think the same subterfuge may have encompassed the “migraine” and “chronic fatigue” problems of others as well. Or, as Berman put it: “It does beg the question, why would the government want to attack a Grammy reporter, a Canadian [Mark McAllister], and Judge Judy? But hey, no one said government conspiracies have to make sense; plus, it might help explain my live flub last week.”

If all this microwave ray-weapon business is true, maybe it finally explains the 1986 New York City assault on Dan Rather, during which one of assailants kept asking, “Kenneth, what is the frequency?”
