Serene Branson, a CBS reporter whom was covering the Grammy’s late Monday evening when she began to slur her words on air, and clearly stumbled over the topic she was covering. Shortly afterwards, Youtube was flooded with harsh statements about CBS hiring such an irresponsible employee to be drinking on the job. Then there were the few comments about how her slurred report could have been a neurological issue. Branson seemed to catch the mistake as she was delivering, however she continued with the rest of the report in the slurred manner, which left the viewers confused. What happened to Branson?

Nobody really knows because CBS is not speaking up. She didn’t go to the hospital afterwards, and was driven home by a friend just to play it safe if she began to experience anything more than fumbled words in her vehicle. Medical experts seem to think she has suffered a mini stroke, or a partial seizure in the language portion of her brain. This is raising questions about neurological issues in young women that has been on the rise since 1994. News reports of this incident are giving warning signs for women to learn so they may act accordingly when they begin to take notice in themselves, or someone else. If you would like more information on the warning signs then check out the American Stroke Association.

    That is so crazy! I heard about this, but did not see it. It’s kind of odd to me that she was not taken to the hospital if she started to slur her words. That is not normal. I would personally be pretty worried. It’s interesting to see how companies take care of certain matters, and what information they will let out, or keep quiet.
