One of my former interns wrote this headline on a graphic about Virgin America adding new flights to Mexico:
"Virgin Expands Down South"
Our astute producer caught the headline and toned it down. Not worth the angry emails from viewers. I can see them now, fraught with exclamation points and capital letters, "HOW INAPPROPRIATE!' 'This is the news, not Playboy Channel! I will never watch NBC again!' Beware the power of the Offended People.
I asked him if my intern wrote it that way on purpose and he was all, "Oh no, it was just an accident, Vicky."
Apparently I didn't teach her well enough.
