So she put up a camera, knowing the monkey would dance, and when the monkey danced, she hit it with a cattle prod.

Screw you miss reporter.

How DARE that woman get into the shot of this reporter?  I mean, it's 5am, on Bourbon Street with the superbowl coming up... doesn't she know proper decorum for such a sacred area?

What a whiny biatch of a reporter.  What kind of reporter gets upset at the exact type of behavior that you are trying to encourage by filming in such an area?  Again, it's in front of a bar, on Bourbon Street...

It's behind because You have been slacking off too much.

How about just getting a hold of yourself.

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.


If that's all it takes for you to get offended, you must be a blast when the guys get together on game day.

You're all missing the point.

Shadow Blasko has hit on the GENIUS idea for the show "Monkey Cattle Prod", and you're acting as if some reporter and a drunk woman are the story.   OPEN YOUR EYES!

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


Right on. She's definitely smart, funny and quick, and it was a big FU to her boss, which sadly I doubt will help her career.

I didn't see any whining. What video did you watch?


The one where she was complaining about what she had to put up with when doing the assignment.  It seems to me, that having a few drunk people wander into the shot and interrupt is kind of the point.

I'd be in the reporter's camp if she were outside a courthouse reporting on a trial or somewhere similar, but when you setup a camera, at night, in front of a bar, on Bourbon street, before the Superbowl, you might as well have a giant neon sign put up that reads, "Hi, we are doing a fluff piece on the craziness going on here, would you mind yelling 'Woooo' or giving a thumbs up with one hand while holding a beer in the other while do this lighthearted piece?"

A smart reporter knows how to guide the crowd, get the shot, and get done.   Toss the people mugging for the camera a bone by acknowledging them, they yell 'Woooo!!', and you turn back to the camera and say "Well, Bob, as you can see the people here are already getting into the spirit of things.  Live from Bourbon Street, I'm professional reporter."  That last statement is the cue for the gawkers to cheer, wave, and add to the closing shot.  Video returns to the senior reporter at the desk, they chuckle a bit at the amusing situation, and say, "In more serious news, government officials confirm that..."

Why am I hard on this reporter?   The woman wasn't going to be a problem.  She wandered into the shot, yelled out for her team, and probably would have wandered in less than 5 seconds.  Instead, the reporter went straight to 11 and lashed out on someone who was just being a jovial drunk (and not even that drunk).  It's unprofessional, and more importantly, she utterly failed at 'dealing' with the situation because it completely derailed the story, and kept the distracting woman on camera even longer than necessary.

Yeah, she handled it all right.  She kept the woman on camera longer than necessary, derailed the focus of her report, and lashed out against someone who wasn't hostile to you.  Yes, she handled it.  Poorly.

Dinjiin: 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.


The problem is that the situation she dealt with was the situation that was supposed to happen.  I'm not even coming at it from a 'learn to deal' perspective.  It would be like going to a rock concert and complaining to the venue that the music is too loud.

rashisti: 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?


So as a NOLA resident you should know that one of the first things tourists notice about the area is the stench, right? She's not saying something shockingly surprising, so stfu

Do you smack a Luxan into hyper rage and get angry because it hurt you?

She went to a place known for drunken debauchery and camwhores, at a time when only the brightest stars of that world would be shining, set up a stage, and then publicly biatchslapped a star for stepping on the stage.

Screw her. She wanted sensationalism and she got it. Then she hurt another to get it, thats when I lost any and all sympathy for her. She could have been cool about it, but she had to humiliate someone. Screw that.

She handled it beautifully. Obviously the interrupting woman wanted some airtime between bouts of holding her drink above her head while swaying and yelling "WOOOOOO!" so the reporter gave it to her. They enjoyed a little joke back and forth, then the drunk wandered off.

As usual, the Fark Pantywad Brigade is flipping the f*ck out about nothing. WOOOOO!

Fark links to stories on other sites. They have to post the stories before they can be linked too. So unless you have a time machine and can link to things that will be posted in the future, you can find ever story posted somewhere else before it's here.
