Cappalotti: NobleHam: He claims he was trying to pronounce "Tsegaye."

It does sound like even after Van Tieu starts talking, Clemente is still trying to sound out Tsegaye Kebede's name. He got frustrated at not being able to pronounce it and in a case of horrendous timing, swore out of frustration and nerves.


So why was there no phonetic pronunciation on the copy?

I wonder if ghey farking shiat pr0n would be an appropriate new career choice.

Leaving satisfied.

I recall a local newsie mispronouncing micro-organisim during a farm news cast.  Fell off my stool, laughing at her.  The crew heard it, but I asked some farmer friends who had seen it, if anything seemed off.  They didn't notice a thing.

/Poor woman had to read another 2.5 minutes of stories, before the break.  She wasn't sure she flubbed it, but she saw the camera guy on the floor, trying to laugh quielty.

I assume because it's a half-ass news station. When I first saw the video, I thought it was a college station or something.  People are saying that he was probably receiving all kinds of hell in his earpiece (which it doesn't even look like he has one) for his gaffe, but no one could tell him that they were now LIVE?
But seriously, you can see and hear him trying to say "Tsegaye Kebede" even as the co-anchor was speaking.

Matthew Keene: The FCC is usually very forgiving if steps are taken that it not happen again. Like firing the offending employee. That being said, CSB. In the late 70s, I was on the air at a major station in Cincinnati doing an early Saturday shift. The station, trying to be like CKLW, did news at 5 before the hour. ABC Network had a tendency to do feeds off the line of Paul Harvey for playback later. One feed was at 6:50am if I recall, and was the responsibility of the news guy to record for playback. In getting ready to hit the air, he forgot to roll tape. He discovered this fact at shortly after 7am. In frustration, he storms out of the news booth, and into the main studio just as the red light above the door came on for my 7:03 between the records segway. Before I'd gotten a word out, clear as a bell from the newsguy's mouth came 'This motherfarking taping shiat has got to stop.' I didn't say a word. Closed the mic as the record came up. He wanted to apologize on the air, but I talked him out of it, because the listeners at that hour on a Saturday are usually in bed, hungover, or still drunk, and can't be sure of what they heard. Never got a call, and nothing ever came of it.


I was at WEBN for a while in the late '90's early 2000's.  There were a few words that flew out over the years...that tends to happen when you give drunk strippers an open mic!  Thank god there was no DVR for radio!  We never got a call either...even with the CCV listening.

He got fired because he said gay in that context, not the other word.

Because that's who runs the media now. That's the whiners that bring the pressure on. No one besides a few prudes cares if the f word gets out.

The local NPR station has interns that must rotate through here every 6 to 18 months or something.  Its funny trying to hear them pronounce the names and locations of South Louisiana.

i haven't heard the thread yet, but it sounded like he was cut into during the middle of a sentence.  So he didn't say, "gay farking shiat", I think he said, (that's) gay.  Farking shiat....."

maybe.

There ARE some.  I saw a lot of really good journalism during last year's flooding in that part of the state, and I know a couple of good anchors in Fargo.  This guy just wasn't one of them.

ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: reported: Probably fake. Why would someone decide to record the start of the local evening newscast on their camera phone? Also the expletives are recorded before the reporters appear on the screen (and presumably before the mics go live) so it's likely the voice of the person recording the vid. Surely even a rookie TV reporter from WV wouldn't be that dumb? (But if it is real, he's gonna have to go back home to work in the coal mines... no company (even fast-food or WalMart) would want to risk employing him in a client-facing position.)

Look, if he was reading the lineup in advance and he is from the east coast, that lineup would really be some gay farking shiat compared to what he's used to hearing/reading of the news on the east coast. It opens with the weather, a couple of YMCA community help stories, the ag markets, the weather, sports, and a cheesy end story.

I've never worked on-air in TV...only mailroom, studio camera/teleprompter, and field work camera but I'm fairly sure that unlike in radio (at least small and medium markets) you NEVER know when the mic is on coming out of a break. Or, in this case, leading off the 'cast. The guy was a dumbass, and so were his professors at West Virginia U. for not pounding this into his head.

No, it's Charles Rocket who got booted off SNL for dropping an F bomb on live TV (in the early 80's). He did commit suicide but it was in a field

notsosilentbob: My first night on the air (radio) in a small town in central PA, I dropped an F-bomb. The only call I got was from a friend of mine that wanted to know when they added that word to the lyrics of "Black Dog". The music director heard it but the program director never said a word.  I almost miss radio every now and then.


My 4th week or so as a DJ I dropped the "F if I know".  No one in management or the FCC noticed, but my fellow DJ gave me grief about it for weeks.

DID get in trouble for discussing alien rectal probing though.  LOL.
