sat down this afternoon to have a sandwich and my wife had the local news on the television.

they did a story that involved them showing a web page in a browser on the screen.

if you work in television news: for the love of all that is holy turn off the freaking bookmark toolbar on whatever browser you'll be using for on-air display.

does your IT staff really want you showing everyone what internally-facing web applications y'all are depending on to get work done? hmmmm?

@djsundog @carcinopithecus I'd say its embarrassing to have a bookmarks bar visible on the news, and to just leave it because the news should be considered a joke. But if they're leaving it on as a subtle paid endorsement that's worse.
