Next on KDKA, a baby parts Lake Michigan. Stay tuned!

1. When did KDKA start getting news tips from the Weekly World News tabloid?
2. Jennifer? To answer your question, I have no idea and I sure as hell don’t want to know.

    That sounds more like a Jerry Springer episode than a KDKA fine ass piece of journalism…

    It’s not that unusual.

    Without seeing the episode, I’d guess that the woman had her daughter’s egg implanted. Since she carried the child to term, the child is her daughter, but genetically, the baby is her daughter’s daughter.

    Pretty common nowadays, actually.

    Rob, I totally get that a surrogate is common and all, even if it is a mom doing it for a daughter. What I think Julie and I are snarking on is that KDKA makes it sound like she gave birth to two babies, one of which was her own daughter and the other of which was her daughter’s daughter. The headline totally distorts the story.
