You stay classy, Fox News.


Another Derpy-derpy "repugnican-hater" confuses a local fox affiliate with "Faux news". Even Derpy derpy "librul-haters" don't connect a CBS affiliates with the CBS network's MSM "lefty bent" - it takes a special kind of person to keep making that connection, just to inject their politics into a thread.

Blindly following the dogma of extremism in either direction is what is killing this country.

I'm sorry - I tried, but Breaking Bad was a stupid series.  That we live in a society that thinks the passing of that show was something worthy of note is much more upsetting than anything that news bimbo could say.

Also, is anyone else sick of the "Jerry Springer method" of local journalism? I mean, the song, "Dirty Laundry", was meant to be a satirical commentary, not a goddamned educational fable.

Jorn the Younger: ReapTheChaos: No matter what a person does or says these days, someone somewhere is bound to get offended by it. And since when is it wrong to offend someone anyway? Big deal, you took offense. When you boil it down, being offended means nothing more than you didn't like something, it's the equivalent of saying "Stop liking what I don't like". Since when is it the worlds responsibility to only say and do things that you would like?

Nice strawman. Pointless, and not really relevant to the issue at hand, but nice.

Oddly, though, you bring up an unintentional but salient point - people who can't see the difference between an inadvertent, but possibly offensive remark, and a deliberate, anempathic attempt to exploit the misfortune of others for gain. Stephen Fry spoke to the former. The fool being excoriated in this thread is an example of the latter.

W. T. Fark: F*ck it, we gettin' outta this joint. (NSFW language)


I trained in air traffic control for a while. My use of profanity got clipped to the point where people think I'm actually polite. I just don't say those words anymore.

I also learned the power of "Say again?" in conversation.  It turns out that many people are more stream-of-consciousness once the beer is on the table and they really don't know what they were talking about.

CheekyMonkey: While I'm not offended by this, it's certainly a poor decision, as there are plenty of pants-wetting retards who will be.


Anyone who has heard the Howard stern show knows this sorta thing happens ALL THE TIME.

He's got bits of Casey Casem cursing while trying to read commercials or lead ins for the next song ("what the fark you guys! You come out of an upbeat song and ask me to give a shout out to someones dead dog!? Ponderous, farking ponderous! you idiots!).  Bill (fark it we'll do it live) O Relly.  Alex Trebek fumbling jeopardy online bits. (Who the fark plays our game 24 hours a day?! this is stupid).

Not to mention lots of other newscasters accidently saying fark, shiat, blowjob, coontlips, and all sorts of other various slip ups.

Mexican Jew Lizard: Well that's not a bad lead at all.

I'm reminded of a clip "The Soup" had recently where this newscaster was seguing from an NSYNC reunion story to a story about someone dying, and transitions with something like "We're saying Bye Bye Bye this week..." and she kept going. It was a bit of wreck, but I can't for the life of me remember where the clip was or who had died. It was withing the past couple of months.


Yeah, but that's The Soup.
