    "We've been trying to reach you and you have not been returning our phone calls," Trent told Jennings after catching up with her in a parking lot.
    "Oh, I'm sorry," she said.
    "It looks like you've made a complete recovery," Trent told her.
    "Well, I wouldn't say a complete recovery. I still have a lot of cognitive issues," she said.

    And she now has a foreign accent-
    --------
    And something else that surprised INSIDE EDITION producers? Jennings is now speaking with a foreign accent she never had before.

    "I'm from Ohio. I should not be talking like this," she told Trent.
    "It sounds like you have an Australian accent," Trent observed.
    "Yeah, I've heard Australian, British, but it essentially comes down to the inability to pronounce words," she explained.

    "There's no way a flu shot can cause someone's accent to change. Absolutely not," Dr. Novella says.

    I'm going to start speaking in a Cockney accent and blame it on a flu shot. That sounds fun.

    This was always such a load of nonsense. The damage is done however. There will be far less publicity of her "recovery" and hence some will retain the pervasive idea that vaccination is a risk.

    If you master Cockney Rhyming Slang, then I'll be duly impressed. :)

    They'd probably think you went to a image coach to upgrade your image and speaking pattern. :p

    Or smother you with a pillow if you kept it up for a week.

    Haha :D!

    I like how she claimed that British and Australian accents come down to not being able to pronounce words properly :).

    Absolutely irrational fear of something that is actually good for you, with "proof" being an isolated event or kook's experience.

    Sounds like a lot of the things that have been debated on the PRSI threads.

    I didn't get a flu shot, I am also still waiting for the havoc to start that I was warned about.

    What does that have to do with anything? You sound like you're just trying to pick a fight.

    Wow, I knew this was fake when I first saw the video. Inside Edition has a responsibility to publicize this.

    And poor Deborah Norville, I remember when she was a real newsperson.

    Loves the attention as much as Jennings is another way to put it.
