One of the things that's taught to students trying to break into television news is that you should never be the story. But if ever was there a time for WKTB-TV's Jennifer Livingston to break that rule, this was it.Having spent many years in a newsroom myself, I can tell you that letters, emails, and phone calls bashing reporters and anchors for their clothing, speech patterns, perceived sexuality, appearance, and everything else are simply commonplace. It's unfortunate, but true.

However, I applaud the way Jennifer decided to handle one recent attack in particular.
