When Spiders Attack Your News Report

Not your average TV news confrontation this morning on BBC Scotland.

While Graham Stewart was reporting for “Reporting Scotland,” a tiny insect crawled on the top right side of the screen. Seconds later, a rather large spider appeared, targeting its prey. BBC’s website is having fun with the insect-infused shot, calling it a “webcast.”

Hall of Fame Says Story Untrue About Shortening Waiting Period for Induction

Yesterday we reported that the Baseball Hall of Fame was considering shortening its waiting period for induction from five years to three years, and we cited a story by Kevin Kernan of the New York Post, who wrote that the Post had learned this info (though it didn’t say from where). Brad Horn, the Hall’s senior director of communications and education, said Kernan’s story is erroneous.

“I’m writing to point out an erroneous report in the New York Post today regarding the Hall of Fame’s voting procedures and the five-year waiting period. This account of a proposed reduction in the five-year waiting period is entirely untrue.”

Kernan had written, “One reason Hall officials would want to shorten the waiting period is to make it a more ‘immediate’ event. There is a lot to be said for that because, why should sure-fire, first-ballot Hall of Famers have to wait five years?

“We’re much more of a quick-response world, and a three-year waiting period would fit the bill. This five-year waiting period was first enacted in the 1950s. Times have changed.”

“It was not done maliciously or to take credit for something I didn’t do,” Paige told Michael Roberts of Denver Westword Blogs. However, he adds, “It was my mistake.”
