‘GMA’ ticker claims something is ‘too beltway speak or legalese for me’

An odd bit of text showed up in the “Good Morning America” ticker.

During the Dec. 24, 2018, edition of “GMA,” at 8:03 a.m. eastern, the odd phrase “(“Pauses” too beltway speak or legalese for me),” in parentheses appeared on the screen. 

The extraneous text came right after an item about Robert Muller, though it’s not clear what, if any news item, it related to.

The text appeared on the ticker provided on the feed provided by ABC News but is covered by some affiliates with a local version with news or weather information.
