Meg Alexander: Will The Real Glenn Coffee Please Stand Up?

4:39 PM EST on November 18, 2009


Tuesday night, on the 10:00PM newscast from KFOR News Channel 4 (AKA The Other Station With Ogles), News Channel 4's News Channel 4 News Team's Meg Alexander kept us 4warned about the un4seen threat to the fiscal future of the state of Oklahoma:

Free coffee 4 state legislators.

Yep, it seems that the House and Senate, together, spend about $40,000 a year 4 coffee 4 members, staff, and people passing through the capitol. It is almost surprising that anyone from 2300 Lincoln has to make their way down to Java Dave's.

That, evidently is 2 much 4 Channel 4, but their coverage (or at least the production values) were 2 good 2 B true.

But, there is some coffee confusion at Channel 4. Or, at least, some Coffee confusion, more specifically trying to identify who, exactly, is Glenn Coffee. 4 anyone who doesn't know, Senator Coffee (who is not related to Mr. Coffee, Joe DiMaggio) is the state senator from Bethany who is also presiding officer of the State Senate and a couple of heartbeats away from the governor's chair.

Well, seems like the production team had a little trouble honing in on Glenn Coffee in Meg's report. First, they said this guy was Glenn Coffee:


It is, in fact, Rep. Joe Dorman (D-Rush Springs, AKA Rep. Watermelon).

Then, they said that this tray was Glenn Coffee:


No, that's a pot of coffee, but it doesn't lead the state senate, at least as far as we know.

They never got around to telling us that this fellow, pictured below and who appeared in the telecast, is in fact Sen. Glenn Coffee:


Here's the entire telecast.  Go to time stamp 7:04.
