Re: WPVI messed up!!!

Make it two, lmao.

For those that don't know. Back in the early 80's a Philadelphia news anchor was caught in a Baltimore hospital with a dead gerbil in his rectum. In Wikipedia they claim it is an urban legend, however, I remember quite clearly when Philadelphia news legend Jack Jones, the first black news anchor in Philadelphia reported on KYW-3 news that Jerry Penacoli was in a Baltimore hospital after a gerbil died in his rectum from a cocaine over dose. The story is a fact.

After the incident Jerry was demoted at channel 3 and when his contract was up, it was not renewed. Soon after this incident was when all the fake Richard Gere stories started.

It's not true. Penacolli's career was almost ruined by that lie.

It did happen. I saw the newscast. You got to love all this revisionist history. The reason I know the story happened was KYW-3 Eyewitness News, the people Jerry worked for broke the story. Jerry's boyfriend drove him all the way to Baltimore hopping he wouldn't be recognized. No one wants to talk about it now, that was involved, but it did happen.
