Even Warhol Wouldn't Give This Guy 15 Minutes

by Larry Mondello

I imagine if we took a poll here at the ol' CTTC of the most annoying professions on the planet, TV weatherman would be among the worst.

But this guy gives us all a chance to pause and reconsider. He's friggin' nuts, but at least he's interesting. He also had enough sense to quit that crazy TV biz and focus on what's really important...

From the Pocatello Idaho State Journal:

To the rest of the country, Scott Stevens is the Idaho weatherman who blames the Japanese Mafia for Hurricane Katrina. To folks in Pocatello, he's the face of the weather at KPVI News Channel 6. The Pocatello native made his final Channel 6 forecast Thursday night, leaving a job he's held for nine years in order to pursue his weather theories on a full-time basis.

Since Katrina, Stevens has been in newspapers across the country where he was quoted in an Associated Press story as saying the Yakuza Mafia used a Russian-made electromagnetic generator to cause Hurricane Katrina in a bid to avenge the atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima. He was a guest on Coast to Coast, a late night radio show that conducts call-in discussions on everything from bizarre weather patterns to alien abductions. On Wednesday, Stevens was interviewed by Fox News firebrand Bill O'Reilly.

And they say local TV news has no more credibility!
