This just in...: L.A. newswoman Serene Branson suffered a migraine, not a stroke
A Los Angeles TV reporter who started speaking gibberish during a live newscast Sunday was suffering from a "complex migraine," her doctor told the L.A. Times Thursday. Serene Branson's mysterious episode went viral on the Web, triggering waves of mockery and concern from people who'd never heard of the local newswoman before, and widespread speculation she'd had a stroke. Not the case, said her doc, though migraines like that can mimic the effects of a stroke temporarily. She's fine now, so everyone get over your Internet voyeurism and move on.
