I'd answer: "I'm not sure. When did your mom catch it?"
 
2013-01-30 11:22:15 PM  
I love all of the outrage in the user comments of the article.  "They're on Bourbon Street!  Of course there are drunks!  It comes with the territory and you should just learn to deal."

Umm, I think she dealt with the situation very well.

That was some awesome quick thinking.

Best reporter ever.

Slander per se?
 
2013-01-31 01:00:55 AM  
Funny but I doubt any news director looking to hire her in the future would look favorably on her actions.

Just try bringing this one in court.
 
2013-01-31 01:07:02 AM  
Fantastic!  Too bad she couldn't get the woman's info.... by the time she was sober and back in Cali, it could be all over her friends Facebook pages.

EngineerAU: Funny but I doubt any news director looking to hire her in the future would look favorably on her actions.


She could be hired by one of those half hour entertainment shows that comes on between 7-8pm. I was surprised one day to see even TMZ has a show on tv.

One day I was watching a reporter doing a pre taped segment for the news. Some passerby ruined the shot, and the reporter went off on the person, yelling that the person was an asshole.

I was expecting something more; the drunk person on the street wasn't really out of line for Bourbon St at 5am.

Reporters are working folk just like the rest of us.  Who wants some arshole farking their shiat up?
 
2013-01-31 01:10:22 AM  
I'm  glad she got the drunk chick out of her really important and hard-hitting news story about how clean and shiny the street was after the streetsweeper went by.
 
2013-01-31 01:10:40 AM  
As the resident NOLA dude, I'm going to take offense at this reporter....It's farking Bourbon Street....there is a reason I avoid that street like the plague most nights, but on top of her being all biatchy about her live shot when I would think that was the exact reason you decided to do a live shot there "look at all these crazy party animals at 6:15am well before the superbowl has started" so for her to be all pissy is wrong of her....now I am even more pissed about her being all like "yeah, it smells like someone vomited pine-sol" yeah, I can tell you one of those uppity Miami biatches that I would have nothing to do with. Want the city to smell nicer, with less trash? Well, I think it would be as simple enough as informing the tourist not to use the city streets as a toilet....but if NOPD brought down the hammer and arrested a bunch of people there would be much whining. So, how bout we all shut the fark up, buy multiple drinks and tip our bartender, and call it a day?

I saw this on Gawker like 6 hours ago. Why is Fark always behind the other sites? I bet this was on Reddit, like, 3 days ago.

EdNortonsTwin: 49ers California 49ers.....gheezez who gves a fark

"That's disrespectfull......49ers"


The reason why the reporter was doing the shot from Bourbon Street is because of the Super Bowl is in New Orleans and the 49ers are one of the teams playing in it. So both the station she works for and the viewers do care.  What's next, reporting from the Daytona 500 and getting mad that the parking lot is full of fans?
 
2013-01-31 01:11:54 AM  
Her comeback was awesome, but she seemed to suck as a reporter in general (at least in this shoot). I think she was imbibing a bit herself.

She was  letting her producer or similar know she was not happy about her assignment that's for damn sure.

How about just getting a hold of yourself.

"Well isn't that why you came over, to talk about your STD?"

Bwahaaaaa, awesome.  The 'wait, what?' look on the drunk chick's face was just classic.

/had to go to YT to find it as the link in TFA is dead

Apparently she's the traffic reporter for the station so this would have been a chance for her to show she is ready to move up the ladder to lifestyle stories. Too bad she blew her chance. Now instead of doing traffic in Miami, she's likely to end up doing the farm report... which if she gets sacked and ends up in Idaho, could be a prestigious position.

the biatch should be fired anyway for dressing like bozo the clowns gotbdamn assistant.

Great wat to get sued, too.

That reads like a list of one-liners on The Colbert Report.
 
2013-01-31 01:20:24 AM  
It sounds like she's setting herself up for a slander suit.
 
2013-01-31 01:20:30 AM  
I think the station should find the woman it accused of having an STD and apologize to her.  Trying to shame people with lies because they annoyed you is not journalism.

If you're reporting on the Superbowl, live, on the street, by a bar, you shouldn't get upset if someone gets on camera to cheer their team.  Just deal with it.

The reporter could have laughed at the silly lady and wish her team luck and moved on, but I guess that's not vindictive enough for the tastes of some.
 
2013-01-31 01:21:14 AM  
Ah, the beauty of the internet.  Taking something that locals who are actually up and watching TV at 5 AM would find amusing, and putting it on display for people with deficient humor glands to shiat all over.

Some of us found it quite amusing.  I'd happily take her out for drinks and see if she remembers the words to "The Beaver Song".

2013-01-31 01:25:48 AM  
Awesome. Did it "shut her down"? No, not even slightly. It did, however, make her look like a total idiot, and that was more than enough.
 
2013-01-31 01:27:14 AM  
She didn't really shut the asshat down, subby. If anything, the asshat got more screentime.
 
2013-01-31 01:29:44 AM  
Quickest way to shut someone down?  Didn't look to me like she shut anyone down to me.  That drunk girl continued to go on after the reporter finally turned away from her.  I bet if the reporter had simply ignored the drunk chick from the very beginning she would have moved on once she got her little 'shout out' on camera.
 
2013-01-31 01:30:40 AM  
How long have you had an STD?
"Well.... i caught HIV a few months ago and the doctors told me I only have a few more days to live. That's why i'm here trying to make the best of it.  But I'm sure your listeners don't care about my problems.  Besides I  wouldn't want to interrupt you're important street sweeping story."

I found it amusing too but that doesn't stop it from being unprofessional. Heck, most of the things I find funny are unprofessional. Luckily it's not my reputation on the line so I'm free to laugh.

Oh, I'm sorry, she wasn't talking shiat about my city? Being a general biatchass? Oh, ok, I take back any offense I might have felt. She was using "pine-sol vomit" in an endearing way.

she wasn't shut down, she was just offended then kept doing the same shiat she was doing. HOLY shiat I'M ON TV HOLY shiat HOLY shiat
hey guess what you can film yourself and put your video on youtube and possibly get 10 million views! go do that instead!
