Conan O’Brien Calls Out Local Anchors (Again) For Identical Election Scripts

In what has become a running segment on his late-night talk show, Conan O’Brien took local stations to task Monday night over identical scripts about election coverage (video above).

“Luckily for Americans across the country, local news stations are providing their own fresh take as the campaign winds down,” O’Brien said before introducing a clip of 12 local anchors saying “the final days of the campaign can get a little salty.”

O’Brien also poked fun at WOAW anchor Cami Mountain, who was featured in the clip. “Well, I’ve made it to the big times (said with all the sarcaism I can muster), Conan O’Brien talked about me on his show last night!,” Mountain wrote on Facebook. “I must admit, it’s quite funny.”
