‘Burtation’ Or Drunk on Air? Minnesota News Anchor’s Slurred Newscast Goes Viral

(By Mike Opelka, The Blaze) - Annie Stensrud anchored the KEYC-TV newscast in Mankato Minnesota on Sunday night and her delivery has the Internet rumor mill working overtime.

Was this a case of on-air intoxication or did the news anchor experience a “burtation” like the one witnessed live on television last February?

“Today’s event featured Christmas fo… music food and a chance to meet the Santa dog… They felt three ways for Christmas…parents and grandparents.”

Watch the clip and decide for yourself: (The big-time slurring of speech hits after the weather at 1:25 and continues to the end of the break.)
