I wouldn't mind taking a cruise in her

I was really hoping a rogue wave would take her out when she was reporting from the beach.

They also got some deep insight in to the devastation from the cast of Jersey Shore.

Ashley Banfield's mom? Ewwww

Fark CNN. In fact, fark just about all of corporate news in the United States. And the horses they rode in on.
 
2012-11-01 01:10:22 PM
Her mom is constantly heard saying "I'm going to ride it out".

It's been entertaining watching CNN fall from being a real news station to USA Today TV.

Like I said in another thread, Sandy is going to be the storm the world will have to farking hear about till the farking end of time.

It's Ashleigh Banfield, not Ashley Banfield. You're never going to hit the big time with a name like Ashley.

That's because Ashleigh Banfield is the whitebread equivalent of Shaneequa Jackson.

It's a farking tragedy when Al-Jazeera has more journalistic integrity than any of the major US cable news networks.

I can't think of anything more horrible than being stuck on a cruise ship. It's very sad. /s

I haven't watched CNN in forever. Does Ashleigh Banfield still have that schoolteacher-in-a-porno look?

And it wasn't even a bad storm.

What a bad storm might be like.
Or perhaps this?

I don't even think either really made national news. Certainly not like Sandy did. Probably because they lacked easy to say names. "Super cell storm system" doesn't roll off the tongue like "Sandy".

This from the *first* person I saw on-air @ Ground Zero ask a dust-covered person running from the site "How do you *feel*?"

\downhill from there for her

Any excuse to look at Ashleigh Banfield is a good excuse. Well played Subby!!

That was the first time I'd seen Ashleigh on TV since she was demoted for bad-mouthing Fox News in 2003. She used to be the #1 foreign correspondent for MSNBC, now she's standing in 2 feet of dirty water in a gutter.

I was office-less for ten months ... No phone, no computer. For ten months I had to report to work every day and ask where I could sit. If somebody was away I could use their desk. Eventually, after ten months of this, I was given an office that was a tape closet. They cleared the tapes out and put a desk and a TV in there, and a computer and phone. It was pretty blatant. The message was crystal clear. Yet they wouldn't let me leave. I begged for seventeen months to be let out of my contract. If they had no use for me, let's just part ways amicably-no need for payouts, just a clean break. And [NBC News President Neal Shapiro] wouldn't allow it. I don't know what his rationale was-perhaps he thought I would take what I felt was a very strong brand, and others felt was a very strong brand, to another network and make a success of it. Maybe that's why he chose to keep me in a warehouse. I will never forgive him for his cruelty and the manner in which he decided to dispose of me.

Ashleigh used to be on the Fox station here in Dallas. The great thing was when she would do the occasional morning call in to the local drive-time show after clearly having been out all night. You could tell she was (and maybe still is?) a party girl. That being said, she was always professional on air and was too good for the local news (even though Dallas is a pretty big market). If I had to pic someone else who will "move up" next from Dallas, I would say Adrienne Bankert on the local CBS affiliate. Really good news anchor and has the looks to make it.

Those poor people. Stuck on a cruise ship with nothing to eat besides three-star restaurant food. Nothing to drink besides tea, coffee, soft drinks, beer, wine, and the drink-of-the-day. Nothing to do for entertainment except for the library, casino, organized sports and four broadway-style shows.

Meanwhile, the Disney 'Fantasy' sailed right in to the freaking storm in order to get back to port on time. (As if anyone needed any more proof that Disney is run by half-wits.)

I ran into her at Nothpark in 98 or 99. I remember it was early afternoon on a Saturday and she seemed like she was already 2 1/2 sheets to the wind. I can only imagine what she is like around last call,.

What's weird is that Katrina gets all the press, but remember Rita? It was even more powerful than Katrina, the most intense tropical cyclone ever observed in the Gulf of Mexico, and wiped a handful small towns off the map, but you never here about Rita anymore. It's the cost that counts, not the power of the storm.
