It’s being called “Sweater-gate,” and a Los Angeles TV station is paying the price.
A Los Angeles TV station is getting its share of flak after its meteorologist was told to cover up while reporting the weather live on the air Saturday.
While KTLA-TV’s Liberte Chan was delivering her 8:00 a.m. weather report, an arm suddenly came into view with it’s hand clutching a grey cardigan sweater.
“What’s going on? You want me to put this on? Why? Because it’s cold?” she asked as she donned the sweater.
Chan wore a black, sequined dress while delivering her report.
“We’re getting a lot of emails,” news anchor Chris Burrows replied. “There you go.”
“I look like a librarian now” she said.

There was but one naysayer — but he was quickly shot down.

There’s no question but that the dress looked good on Chan, but was it appropriate? What did you think?
