First - Fast - Accurate; Breaking News!

Our local station's moniker is First - Fast - Accurate

Today's CNN broadcast was the ultimate faux pas.



A broadcasting FIRST: CNN was showing footage of President Bush addressing the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina when audio was mixed in from anchor Kyra Phillips. She was talking to another CNN staff member in the CNN ladies restroom, and somebody was "zipping up".

Maybe ACCURATE: On the audio Kyra Phillips lays into her sister-in-law...

Could have been FASTER: Anchor Daryn Kagan jumps in to transistion the lowlight of Kyra Phillips career.



Kyra: That's how you figure it all out. Mom's got a good vibe?

ZIP! ZIP!

Kyra: He's married, three kids, but his wife is just a control freak..

Kyra: Yeah baby...

Woman: Your mic is on...

Kagan: All right, we've been listening in to President Bush as he speaks...

Wireless mics are dangerous for this reason!!! A church that I went to before I moved to nashville was just getting into the wireless thing when our pastor did the "Frank Drebben: episode of Naked Gun and was in the faciltie with the mic hot as a pistol. Needless to say, the congregation of the church had a great laugh and our pastor wanted to crawl under a rock!
