Over the past 11 years of doing this commentary I've been called a lot of names, idiot, moron, a joke, a prude, a hater and those are the some of the ones I could put on the air.

It's kind of the nature of the beast with this kind of segment.

But other people here get the occasional ugly e-mail or voicemail, that's merely a cheap shot, a chance to cut down someone on TV.

Well it happened to a morning anchor in Wisconsin, a viewer wrote in that she's fat and a poor health example for the community's young people.

Jennifer Livingston responded with a five minute jag, that's gone viral.

Jennifer noted that it's anti-bullying month, and spoke directly to kids who are being bullied. Pretty brave of her to go on the air and do that.

And remember when you're writing stuff like that, the internet's not as anonymous as you think.
