A popular video circulating on YouTube today (until receiving the cease-and-desist order) showed Channel 13 newsman Mike Dello Stritto working hard to prep for his smokin' hot live shot.
Anchors Brandi Hitt and Pallas Hupe tossed it to Dello Strito, who is caught on camera smoking a cigarette. And he blows the smoke out of the side of his mouth, Bogie-style. The best part is how Hupe gamely tries to refrain from laughing.
Late this afternoon, CBS corporate brass requested that YouTube - and we at 21Q - take down the video because the material is copyrighted. Which we have done. We can certainly understand why the station doesn't want anyone to see the clip.
