Al Roker Calls Out Critics: “Just Because Your Medium Is Irrelevant…Doesn’t Mean You Have To Trash Others”

By Brian 

On his personal Web site, NBC’s Al Roker responds to critics of his Wilma weather reports:

  I’ve been Googling news stories about my now infamous fall on live television during my coverage of Hurricane Wilma. I’ve read all these print journalists knocking their broadcast brethren about how we are trivializing hurricane coverage.

How we are setting bad examples. How this is just grandstanding.

I’ve got your grandstand right here.

Stop whining. Just because your medium is irrelevant when it comes to a breaking story like a hurricane doesn’t mean you have to trash others who are out there covering it.
