'Geraldo' restarted when error realized

January 16, 1992|By David Zurawik

WMAR-TV said "operator error" was responsible for a sudden change in the "Geraldo" program Tuesday. A show on women members of the Ku Klux Klan was stopped about five minutes after it started; the rest of the hour was filled with a show about survivors who forgive murderers of their relatives.

Emily Barr, chief of programming at Channel 2, said that the Klan show had aired last week, but that the tape was played again Tuesday by mistake. When the error was discovered, the Klan show was pulled and replaced by the correct tape.
