KSTP's Bill Lunn went national Wednesday--but not in a way newscasters like to be recognized.
During Tuesday night's evening news, Lunn teased to a story about a school debating whether or not to continue to do the Pledge of Allegiance."
His line was supposed to be: "I pledge allegiance to the flag."
Instead he said: "I pledge allegiance to the fag."
He quickly corrected himself.
The error might have gone largely unnoticed except for the topic of the next piece: The Gay Pride Parade.
Lunn appeared to have a good sense of humor about the mistake. He later tweeted that it was an "unfortunate slip" that will guarantee he makes the KSTP year-end blooper reel.
Check it out for yourself. Harmless or hurtful?
