Kiran, “what is that white flying saucer?” As American Morning guest host Jim Acosta read a story about the Idaho wildfire, courtesy KPVI-DT footage ran (7:06 a.m. ET) of flames and billows of smoke with a small white flying saucer-like object crossing the sky. When the author saw it the first time, he hit “replay” to make certain that he was not seeing things. When he did, there the same small ivory plate was traversing the heavens. Of course, the author immediately thought that CNN may be getting “punked” by a puckish iReporter.
When the author Tweeted co-anchor Kiran Chetry for an explanation to the phenomenon, she provided none to him nor the rest of her AM audience. However, the story and the video strangely did not run again.
AM‘s “UFO”? Had only eagle-eyed John Roberts been at the helm today. Surely, the viewers would not have been so left in the dark.
