People are still getting adjusted to High Definition widescreen, including those who actually work on TV. It seems that 16:9 is much harder to deal with than 4:3.
Nobody knows this better than Houston news anchor Owen Conflenti. It seems that Mr. Conflenti flipped off his coworkers during a live broadcast, but did not consider it was a widescreen broadcast. Consequently, if you were watching in HD, you could see his middle finger aimed at his coworkers. If you were watching in SD, there wouldn’t be a problem.
Although many would consider this a huge travesty, his station KPRC have allowed him to keep his job. In fact, he has been dispatched to report on the Super Bowl in Dallas.
