Watch: TV anchor drops F-bomb
in debut, fired shortly after

New York Post, by Dan Good

Original Article

The first rule in TV newscasts – don’t curse when you’re in front of the camera. You never know when your microphone might be open. You never know when you might become the next YouTube sensation, the way A.J. Clemente did Sunday. Clemente was leading off his first newscast as the weekend anchor at KFYR, an NBC station in Bismarck, North Dakota, when he let loose. “F-----g s--t,” he said into his microphone, fifteen seconds into his first anchoring gig. Fifteen seconds! The nerves got to him. After Clemente opened his mouth, co-anchor Van Tieu continued with the newscast

Not to worry.

He´s the next DimWit Party spokesturd.

He´s already got the DimWit Potty Line down pat (if you´ll excuse the pun)...

Or... he could manage the Red Sox.

I´m sorry but I found this hilarious! Poor guy realized what he did too, apparently. He and his co-anchor were quite flustered after that. He won´t do that again.

Larry Munson, Vanderbilt sportscaster during the 1960s, was fired after cursing into a "hot" mic. IIRC, he wound up at University of Georgia. Our loss was their gain. Munson was very good at what he did with that one exception.

This Post article reminds me of Major League fastballer-turned-knuckleballer Jim Bouton, #56, who wound up in Seattle after his fastball--and the New York Yankees--abandoned him. He wrote two entertaining books, Ball Four and I´m Glad You Didn´t Take It Personally, about inside baseball stuff. He wrote that his Seattle manager´s favorite two words were the S-bomb and the F-bomb, in all their possible permutations. A.J. Clemente didn´t last long enough on air to get those two words down in both permutations, but what he said did suffice, in the Mercutio sense of the word. ´Twill do.

The Seattle Manager was the late Joe Schultz. He enjoyed "pounding Budweiser." So do I.

When I was training to be a DJ on my college radio station, one of the first things they taught us was no swearing in the studio because you never know when the mic is going to be accidently left open. The guy was obviously scared senseless and wasn´t ready for an anchor position, but he still should have known better. Because of all the attention he´s received from this, some station will give him a second chance. For his sake he better have learned his lesson and prepares himself better for that chance.

It’s even worse than it appears - he’s mumbling, swears for some inexplicable reason (he´s rookie, but is still supposed to be a pro, right? He´s not off the street), sounds like he’s either bagged or has a speech impediment, and totally blows the invitation to intro himself.

Think about this: Who HIRED this guy? The rot is there too.

Thanks to Hazymac and Italiano for bringing up Jim Bouton´s Ball Four, which was a great read:

Do you remember the passage when he showed up at the ballpark early in his career with the Yanks and happened to witness Ted Williams taking batting practice?

This is my rendition of Jim Bouton´s memories of Ted Williams´ rant and hits:

"My name is Ted F-ng Williams and I am the greatest "fng"hitter in baseball!"

BOOM

"Here comes Jim Bunning and his sh===t slider"

BOOM

"My name is Ted F-ng Williams and I am the greatest "fng" hitter in baseball!"

And so on and so forth.

Thanks for the memories gents

I hate to see such a mistake and hope he can learn from it. Start him over as a field reporter in 2014.

Other than the cursing incident he was hardly impressive but not a disaster.

Punishment was definitely called for and firing seems right.

Michael Schumacher is said to be “showing small signs of progress” in his recovery from a serious brain trauma as the seven-time Formula 1 world champion continues to be treated for injuries sustained in a skiing accident last December. The 45-year-old’s manager Sabine Kehm confirmed earlier this month that Schumacher was showing signs of consciousness and being awake, and she has now elaborated on her latest revelation that gives hope of the F1 great making a recovery. “There are short moments of consciousness and he is showing small signs of progress,” Kehm told German broadcaster ARD.

The danger in the Ukraine crisis was always that the Ukrainians — or some faction therein — would fight the Russians, escalating the crisis. Resistance from Obama was not in the cards. CNN quoted David Frum as saying that Obama had in effect gave Putin the “green light” to carve up Ukraine. Obama’s admirers think so too, though they put it differently. Ronan Farrow has advised the president to do nothing as Russia advances. “So, President Obama waiting and exercising caution isn’t necessarily sitting on his hands.

Just as the legal profession has its Latinisms and the sports world its slang, the art world has its own language and jargon that can often leave outsiders scratching their heads. This insider vocabulary includes terms that may seem a bit comical ("houseable," meaning the artwork fits in a normal-size living room) or contradictory (objects in a museum may be on "permanent loan," which is a loan no one has any intention of paying back, or donated as a "fractional gift," meaning the owner may keep possession of the piece while donating it in installments over time).

Last week’s Supreme Court decision in McCutcheon v. FEC struck down federal limits on the total amount individuals can contribute to combinations of federal candidates and parties during a two-year election cycle. Predictably, it unleashed a wrath of criticism from labor unions. But a comparison of their rhetoric to reality shows a little introspection is warranted before they call the kettle black. In the hours after McCutcheon was announced, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka stated, “The Supreme Court made one of the most undemocratic and corrosive decisions in history with the Citizen’s United (sic) ruling.

The right to destroy innocent unborn children, a moral and cultural poison injected into the American body politic in 1973 by the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, has led to evils like Kermit Gosnell, the monstrous “doctor” who bizarrely displayed the arms and legs of aborted babies in jars in his office. Recent news out of Britain stated that in more than two dozen government-run hospitals, aborted babies and miscarried fetal remains were burned in furnaces as medical waste without the knowledge of parents. The Telegraph reports that mothers were instead told that the remains had been cremated. At

Malone, 34, was arrested at 3:23 a.m. at Platt Street and Rome Avenue in Tampa, the HCSO arrest report said. A Tampa police officer stopped Malone after seeing his 2014 Chevrolet Suburban make a left turn from a center lane of South Armenia Avenue onto Platt Street and then strike the curb at South Howard Avenue, police said. When Malone exited the vehicle, the officer smelled alcohol on his breath,

When the US spotted signs of a Russian buildup on the Ukraine border, the Obama administration decided not to share the information with Kiev. (Snip) If the coda of the Clinton years was there was “no controlling legal authority” the Obama administration equivalent might well be “those rules are not self-executing”. That means that just because the administration says something doesn’t mean they have to do anything about it. Making an effort is so much trouble. Why not just issue a press release and forget about it? Instead it is far easier to do nothing and to simply pretend things are

A Lake Wales hunter says he was attacked by a Florida panther while he was calling turkeys near Lake Kissimmee in Central Florida. If true, it would be the first recorded panther attack on a human since the 1800s. Unfortunately, say state biologists, the hunter waited three weeks to report it. That means they cannot verify that it occurred. His wounds are nearly healed, and rain that has fallen since the attack has obscured any paw prints the animal may have left behind. Still, Byron Maharrey is sure about what pounced on him from behind and left him scratched and

The son of longtime PGA Tour player Jay Haas broke 70 for the first time in five Augusta National appearances.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
