After reports the ABC would be benching casual weekend newsreader Natasha Exelby from its lineup, the national public broadcaster seems to have backflipped on its decision.
Response to the "daydreaming" video online - which went viral when the ABC's own Media Watch shared it on Facebook - was overwhelmingly positive, with a number of journalists tweeting their own on-air gaffes in support of Exelby.
Early reports and swirling rumours that the journalist might get the flick were met with fervent criticism.
