CNN Goes Oops

Oooh, don't we all love fuck ups! It is the nip slips, Freudian slips, silly trips, awkward bumbles and sound board goof ups that make live TV so worthwhile. The most recent whopper was when CNN accidentally aired its anchor's naughty girl talk as she peed and washed up in the bathroom OVER the image of Bush blabbing about how we are going "to damage, oops, I mean, repair the damage" in New Orleans (article here).

It is so perfect that you almost wonder if they were doing it on purpose. I mean, does anyone really care to hear Bush pretending to give a shit about the victims of Hurricane Katrina? I think not.

I might be interested in watching Bush choke on a pretzel, now THAT I would like to see, but fake empathy, yawn, some other time. I would much rather hear two ladies in a bathroom washing their hands, zipping up their pants and bitching about their sister-in-laws:

Phillips: "Brother–of course, brothers have to be, you know, protective. Except for mine. I’ve got to be protective of him."

[unidentified woman–unintelligible]

Phillips: "Yeah. He’s married, three kids, but his wife is just a control freak."

Well done Kyra Phillips and friend! Kyra, you get to read the Top 10 on the Late Show tonight so it seems your career has not suffered greatly and in the meantime, you have given us all a much needed guffaw. And hell, men are all assholes! You tell em! Good on ya girl!
