In an incident described as “absolutely horrifying,” a meteorologist for a Los Angeles TV station collapsed suddenly on the air Saturday morning as she was about to begin her 7 a.m. weather forecast.
Alissa Carlson Schwartz of CBS affiliate KCAL was being introduced by her co-anchors Nichelle Medina and Rachel Kim when she lost consciousness.
“The video is absolutely horrifying,” said a TMZ report.
“You see Carlson’s eyes roll to the back of her head, and she begins to lean forward on the desk she was at. Eventually, she completely collapses.”

Carlson is seen on camera slowly slumping forward as her head nearly hits the table.
“As the two anchors noted at the beginning of the segment, Carlson was on set with them – but it appears she might’ve been at a different location … because they didn’t seem to notice she’d passed out until a few moments later. They panicked and cut to commercial,” TMZ noted.
“KCAL never came back to a live news report after this – the station opted to air pre-recorded/promotional programming for several hours.”

The meteorologist was recuperating from her fainting, and by 2:30 p.m. Saturday was posting on Facebook, saying: “Thanks for all the texts, calls, and well wishes. I am going to be ok!”
The TV station issued a statement about the incident, indicating: “KCAL News Meteorologist Alissa Carlson was about to start her weather forecast this morning when she fainted. Our team jumped in to help and comfort her while waiting for medical help to arrive.
“Alissa is now recovering and posting on social media.
“We’ve heard from many people as well worried about Alissa’s wellbeing. We also want to thank those of you who reached out for your thoughts and prayers.
“Alissa will be back with our Next Weather team on KCAL News as soon as she’s well enough to return.”
This is not the first time she has suffered an on-air medical emergency.
“I was getting ready for the morning show and I was filling in,” she told KGET-TV in Bakersfield, California, the station at which she was working in 2014.
“All of a sudden, during the newscast, I threw up in the weather center,” she said.
While Carlson initially thought it was the flu, she was eventually diagnosed with a leaky heart valve.
It’s unclear if her previous medical issue was a factor in Saturday’s on-air collapse.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Long the world’s most Christian nation, America today is being taken over by a new “official” national religion, one being imposed on the entire populace by every major societal institution, from government, media and big tech, to academia, entertainment and business.
This new state religion is Wokeism. “Going woke” conjures up visions of someone claiming to be acutely sensitive (“awake”) to “systemic social and political injustice.” And not just alleged bigotry against blacks, but toward every other “minority” as well, from LGBT folk – especially everything transgender and “nonbinary” – to “undocumented immigrants.” All of them, being VICTIMS, intrinsically more virtuous than the shameful oppressor class: primarily heterosexual white males.
This new “woke” consciousness has turned America upside-down – from the nationwide Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in 2020, to tearing down of historic monuments, to demanding multi-million-dollar reparation payments for blacks, to appointing transgenders as top government officials, to rampant reverse discrimination in every area of life, to the U.S. military imposing mandatory “diversity training” and transgender pronoun use on all personnel, causing recruitment to disastrously plummet.
Yet there is hope. Being “saved” – which in Wokeism is called being “woke” – is largely a matter of worshipping victimhood by becoming an “ally” and “defender” of all the many victim classes, and a determined enemy of the straight white male oppressor class. Thus, “joining the righteous” as an ally – even if one is cursed to be a straight white male – opens the door mercifully for salvation, even to the most wretched.
That is the power of the religion of Wokeism. And it’s explored as never before in the February 2023 issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine. If you’ve ever wondered, for example, exactly how the most radical elements in American society are successfully pressuring the biggest corporations into adopting the most outrageous and immoral policies imaginable, even when doing so permanently damages and devalues the company, the stunning answers are in this issue of Whistleblower, titled “WOKEISM: AMERICA’S OFFICIAL STATE RELIGION.”
