The Wrap reports, one San Diego ABC affiliate KGTV reporter said she may have a solution.
has enacted a policy that will, hopefully, put an end to the lame viral trend forever.
“When we get to a place, if we have to go live, we now have to kind of scan the area and see who’s around,” KGTV’s Emily Valdez told TheWrap. “If it looks like we’re going to get hecklers, we will tape it now to do what’s called a ‘look live,’” which, she explained, is a pre-taped segment that looks live but isn’t. “That’s something we didn’t have to do before.”
And what sort of person, you may ask, is most likely to raise the FHRITP red flag? “It’s usually white guys, late high school or college-type young people doing it,” said Valdez.
