Chicago Meteorologist Twitter Bullies Rival over Forecast

Apparently Jerry Taft, meteorologist for Chicago ABC owned station WLS, was on vacation when the region was hit by a snowstorm.

Taft noticed Brant Miller, meteorologist for cross town rival NBC owned station WMAQ, predicted a lot more snow than the three to six inches delivered. So he tweeted out a screen shot of Miller telling Chicago viewers about the snow dump that never came.

Like any good bullyfest going down behind the 7-Eleven after school, WCNC chief meteorologist Brad Panovich got in a long distance shot from the Charlotte, NC NBC affiliate. So much for the brotherhood of the peacock.

Taft finished off his verbal left jab with a soft kiss and a quick right cross,

Miller has not responded in kind.
