The most widely-publicized side effect of HD on newscasters is the ability to pick up the manner of subtle facial blemishes that would have otherwise been lost in lower definition broadcasts. Another concern, the wider aspect ratio that comes with HD broadcasts and new TV sets, however, apparently caught KPRC anchor Owen Conflenti by surprise.All the poor reporter wanted to do was flip someone the bird off camera, and sadly the who thing was caught for the greater Houston audience–and YouTube–to see. The gesture occurred around 9:20 AM, as the station was coming back from a commercial break. The station is officially issuing a “no comment” on the footage. Conflenti issued a similar, “As you probably assumed, I can’t comment.” The reporter does appear to still be with the station, however. KPRC sent him to Dallas to cover the Super Bowl.For those who can’t stomach a quick middle finer will want to skip the video after the jump.
