At noon Thursday during the CNC 3 newscast, we again saw that report on the arrival of the Grenadian Prime Minister, the one Sampson Nanton did for the 7pm news on Wednesday.
Two things. First, that event occurred more than 24 hours before. Why did the news producer find it necessary to run the exact same packaged report one day later? If you so desperately needed content, why not use it as a voice over or a voice over with one soundbite from Mr Thomas?
And second, the report contained the same sentence from Sampson telling us that the Grenadian PM was invited to inspect the guard of honour, "...and he did, before sitting down for talks..." while we saw this on screen.
Steups! Thursday was clearly a slow news day.
