  1. Owen Conflenti is an a-hole. Worst male anchor in the local market. Figures Crap 2 didn't punish him....a good station would have use the oppty to fire the worthless hack.

  2. Why wasn't uni-brow Conflenti penalized by KPRC? I know the station is pathetic, but even they must have some standards, beyond the "have fake boobs will hire" mentality.

  3. Owen is hot! It was a joke. A very poor one at that, but he apologized and that's that. He's adorable even though I think channel 2 has the worst set of anchors in front of channel 26.
