As Twitchy reported Tuesday, MSNBC’s Katy Tur took an unusual tack when reporting on $1,000 bonuses being paid out to workers in Ohio. She’d ask a worker what they planned to do with the money, and then attempt to paint their aspiration as way out of reach … like this:

After “fact-checking” a couple of workers’ goals into dust, Tur was inundated with tweets explaining what “saving” for something means. It seems the message might have gotten through a bit — on Wednesday, Tur suddenly decided $1,000 was a big deal. Mediaite has the video:

“Every dollar counts and $1,000 is a very big deal,” Tur claimed on air, adding, “shouldn’t we be pushing for long-term salary hikes, the kind of sustained help that would transform big-ticket dreams into everyday realities?”

“Or does that make me seem out of touch? I’m just not sure,” she concluded.
