CBS has put in a copyright claim to get YouTube to take down all the videos it can find of Channel 2 reporter Serene Branson's on-air medical event last night. Curiously, even the video embedded on CBS's own HealthWatch page has gone dark. Looks like what the network really wants is for no one to see its staffer embarrassed, and there's something to be said for that. In the clip, Branson tries to give a live report from the Grammys on last night's 11 o'clock news, but her words come out as gibberish. Some have observed a flash of fear flash across her face before the signal was cut off.
Noted: On that CBS Health Watch page, the associate professor of neurology and neuroscience at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine tells CBS News: "Frankly, I would have admitted her" to a hospital, fearing a transient ischemic attack. Instead, according to CBS 2, Branson was seen by paramedics after going off the air then went home, where she is reportedly fine.
