You always have to watch your tongue when you're on the air; otherwise you could end up accusing your co-anchor of having incestuous relationships with her kids. That's what WSVN's Today in South Florida host Diana Diaz recently did when she flubbed an ad-libbed line about cohost Christine Cruz.
Oh, oh! She meant "texts from her kids." OK! I don't really need deeply disturbing revelations like that during my morning newscasts, even if it is "if it bleeds it leads" WSVN.
