GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The winter that won't end has taken its toll on a TV meteorologist in western Michigan.

Garry Frank of WXMI-TV in Grand Rapids, Mich., went on a rant to colleagues because they weren't excited about his forecast.

Video of the rant has gone viral with more than 1.3 million views since it originally aired Tuesday.

Frank told them they were dragging him down. He said he'd like to hear some praise because it was going to be 60.

His co-workers pointed out that snow was in the forecast.

Frank asked his colleagues if they wanted him to lie to them about the weather.

A reporter who came on after his forecast is seen slowly peeking on camera and asking if Frank was done and calling the report "terrifying."

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
