Yeah. I read that on my phone and was really glad the video wasn't working. Would prefer not to rewatch woman-obviously-having-a-involving-the-brain-medical-emergency-being-m ocked-as-drunk again.

Didn't realize it wasn't a stroke, though. Guess I learned something. Like how putting her in a list of "5 newscasters who humiliated themselves on-air" is still really f--king cruel.

Proteios1: Probably just giddy. She's a democrat pretending to be an unbiased journalist. Stephanopolis was Clinton's spokesperson. Now pretending to be unbiased. It's silly to think the left hasn't infiltrated the media. Except they are more insidious than Fox News. Fox News says, hey were politically right and biased. Hey-o!


Oh, I didn't know she was a Democrat! What with her career inside the Nixon White House and then later outside the White House as one of his literary aides....

LDM90: Did Fark suddenly grow a conscience? I though laughing at others' misfortune is what this site was all about.


The site oscillates between epic lulz and righteous indignation. It's always good to wait to see which way particular threads turn before jumping in.

KaiC: Ok Wiki'd Jessica Savitch and it's correct that she was not drunk or on drugs (or even caused the crash). Still find watching her last broadcast a little creepy and even sadder that THAT would be the last thing her viewers would see of her.



This. Back when it was thought to have been a stroke, and even now, when they're saying that it wasn't, that clip is seriously disturbing. The panic in her eyes is not funny.

That's right, you can't be the first.

I feel soiled for having read that.

"Hey, after we're done slandering Diane Sawyer, let's see if we can sound even worse by slandering others."

What about the woman who killed herself on-air? I mean, that's a career ending move.

Guess I'm just old, I find these too sad to watch. The one with the woman who had a stroke (or migraine, whatever the doc wanted to call it) was obviously in the wrong list, and the last broadcast of the woman who crashed and drowned? I guess there's too much creep-factor there for me.
