CLEVELAND - You can't believe anything you read on the Internet on April Fools' Day. For NewsChannel5's Chris Flanagan, you can't believe anything that's on the teleprompter either.
Chris remained a true professional as the newsroom tried to pull a prank during Monday night's "Dancing with the Stars".
We told our 11 p.m. anchor we were doing a live tease. With both anchors on set, we hoped that Chris would be our own Ron Burgundy and read whatever was in the prompter.
Even with co-anchor Danita Harris in on the joke and rushing through the script, Chris passed over the sentence "I am a moron" with a brief phase. Minutes later, Danita cracked up laughing.
Maybe Danita would have been a better target.
