Outstanding, Submitter. Hope this gets greenlit.

Oh, Jesus.
 
2005-11-02 05:29:57 PM  
Yay!

Now I can show my wife that even CNN admits that he's a raging pooftah.

Well done.

But Aaron brown was that kind of crazy that I could really get behind.

wait.

/how Wolf Blitzer continues to exist as a news entertainer is completely beyond me

My girlfriend agrees with you. She's all bummed out because she never gets to see CNN over in Ireland.
 
2005-11-02 05:33:46 PM  
HEY! Hang on a second.

Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. WAIT!

Does the headline sound dirty to anyone else?
 
2005-11-02 05:35:05 PM  
NO. Not to me. Why do you ask??
 
2005-11-02 05:35:48 PM  
No_47

You're right. Thanks for pointing that out. I completely glossed over that.

Can someone explain this to me? I'm completely missing the joke.

Andersoon Cooper is just barely in the closet. We're talking millimeters. Saying he fills the brown slot...

xcbAaron brown was that kind of crazy that I could really get behind.

Well... Anderson Cooper will have to be the kind of guy you'll get behind now...

/not that there's anything wrong with that.
 
2005-11-02 05:45:33 PM  
Is anyone going to tune in to see men in the Brown slot?

He's in the closet? I think that might be news to him....

I thought, like, everyone knew that Anderson Cooper was a total Mary.
 
2005-11-02 05:47:24 PM  
When Cooper sits down, without Aaron around, who's going to push his stool in?
 
2005-11-02 05:50:55 PM  
"Brown slot"?

Oh man, that ain't right...

He's coy about it. New York magazine asked him about his sexuality, and he responded, The whole thing about being a reporter is that youre supposed to be an observer and to be able to adapt with any group youre in, and I dont want to do anything that threatens that.

So... yeah. Public knowledge, but not yet publicly acknowledged.

This coupon good for one (1) beer paid for by yours truly. Outstanding.
 
2005-11-02 05:53:28 PM  
Woah, my quote mars disappeared. That was weird.
 
2005-11-02 05:54:51 PM  
So Brown got dumped? I'll bet Coopper feels like a huge weight has been lifted.

#got nuttin
##glad to see Aaron gone. Despised his reporting on 9/11/2001.
 
2005-11-02 05:57:19 PM  
and my "K"

/I'm going home
 
2005-11-02 06:21:35 PM  
I would feel sorry for Brown but i can't stop giggling at the headline.
 
2005-11-02 06:28:55 PM  
Submitter wins the thread.

I am blissfully ignorant of most of CNN but dang that sounds harsh. Vacations are dangerous for your job. What sort of newcaster was Brown?

Anderson Cooper is my hero though. I have only seen him twice but got to hear him give that senator what-for.

Saw the situation room once. It sucked. It looked more like MTV than news.
 
2005-11-02 06:34:57 PM  
'OooRAY! Cooper rocks.

Aaron Brown, quickdraw, is a reporter who's outstanding at using emotion but average everywhere else.

quickdraw: Submitter wins the thread.


Submitter wins everything!

What's a Shepard Smith? One who keeps sheep and does a little horseshoe making on the side?

Unless I've gone idiot I think I saw him on the cover of Out magazine like six months ago.

But you may be right; even if that's true he may have not publicly acknowledged it.
 
2005-11-02 08:22:41 PM  
heheheheh
 
2005-11-02 08:23:54 PM  
Anderson Cooper? from "Channel One" back in the middle/high school days?
 
2005-11-02 08:24:40 PM  
Certainly Not News is almost as full of shiat at Faux News. Why can't the American press do anything like BBC?
 
2005-11-02 08:28:10 PM  
i still think anderson coopers best work was done on world news now. that's an abc show that's on between like 3am and 7am.

i used to watch it all the time when i was an insomniac back when him and thalia asuras were on it. he was always crackin jokes, good stuff.
 
2005-11-02 08:28:23 PM  
Anderson Cooper?

Isn't he the new face of journalism? Didn't he get a tear while reporting that black people were raping, killing, and stealing from each other without actually witnessing these events?

According to NPR, Anderson Cooper was the second coming of Jesus Christ. I honestly expected the NPR reporter to go down on him. I'm sure it probably happened after the interview.

Once again, CNN is replacing news with personalities. This is a bad day for America. Why does every shot on cable news have to be filled by 25% of some obnoxious idiots head?
 
2005-11-02 08:28:53 PM  
Aaron Brown kicked ass! Does anybody remember him when he used to do that really relaxed news show on ABC late at night at 0dark30 or so in the late 90's? The guy has a great sense of humor, I'm going to miss him.

I don't think this has made it to TV news yet and I don't think FARK will ever post a link. We have to be sensitive to Muslims I guess.

WoodyHayes:

Yes, I remember the late night ABC stint that Aaron Brown did. He was great. Way better than the two doofuses that do it now.

He said CNN.
 
2005-11-02 08:31:59 PM  
Not to threadjack, but there was a lot of news in Seattle when Brown was at KING that he was (allegedly, of course) caught in bed with another Seattle news anchor (it was a she, and she's with CBS News right now).
