When I saw this video, I was shocked because I watch this lady on the news almost every night. She does the 11 o'clock news for NBC in NYC. I guess since NBC is so effed up in the ratings, she figured what the hell, no one is probably watching anyway:
Is it really a big deal to curse on TV nowadays? Should she have apologized right away?
haha I remember seeing this a while ago! I think it was on best week ever. Hah. At least she apologized I suppose. And as for your question, it isnt a big deal to curse on tv shows but when you're a news anchor is has more to do with being professional. It's like when you want to work at an office or something you don't come in sounding ghetto and speaking the same way you would with your friends. You want to sound intelligent and professional! :P
At any rate, i do agree that shes supposed to be more professional than that (She is a news anchor after all...) but... I mean...i guess she apollogized. We americans can be so fucking uptight though. I dont get why it HAS to be censored.
Go turn on the TV in the UK. I remember this one screwed up game show or something and one of the contestants just blatantly screamed at the TV host. I don't remember what it was but it just randomly caught my attention when he started yelling:
"FUCK THAT! FUCK. THAT!!!!" to which he laughed and yelled back: "No. FUCK YOU"
This gave me a pretty good laugh. Glad it slipped through the censors.
THAT WAS AMAZING. She said it with such CONVICTION. I love it. I'd watch the news more often if the anchors were more passionate about the stories they were reporting on instead of robots wearing suits.
come-on! we've all had those moments where we were live on local television and someone was walking around the set while we were doing and off-screen voice over, and we just politely asked them in our sassiest voice, "What the fuck are you doing?"
