WMC's Joe Birch needs to have a serious heart to heart with his scriptwriter. Or maybe high camp is what Action News 5 is going for these days. 

Here's a Birch sample from Tuesday's newscast: "A fight. People run over. Crashes... a video so shocking WMC Action News 5's Jerry Askin searched for some answers."

By "searching for answers" the famously helmet-haired anchor meant that the reporter asked random people what they thought about a thinly-sourced YouTube video. The clip in question seemed to show a fight and people being intentionally hit by cars. You can watch the weird reaction vid here.
