Saw that a bunch of your news personalities were hosting a huge party over the weekend. I guess social distancing is only for the optics of a broadcast. Kind of stupid for your team to be broadcasting from their homes and pretend to be sheltering in place only then to head out to loft parties downtown. While the rest of us are making sacrifices, your news and traffic girls are partying like they’re in Vegas.
