  1. What did Dominique Sachse do as an anchor to deserve credit in the winning Jennifer's Story nomination? Just introduce Joel before he presented the story?

  2. Great question...all I ever see her do is say "uh huh, sure, right, yes" when annoyingly interrupting the weather guy. She sucks.

  3. I guess we'll never know....but based on track record, it's safe to say she did nothing but worm her way into another attention-reveiving opportunity with no work, effort or skill on her part.
