Seven News presenter Rod Young tonight reading his autocue on a story about the Australian Government's new fuel regulation scheme referred to the price watchdog as the "Ay-see-see-see that's the A-triple-C".

Me thinks someone in the newsroom forgot to write their script EXACTLY as they wanted it to be read.

While it's easy to knock some television news presenters for getting paid a lot for simply reading other people's words, it's not as easy as it looks.
