New York WNBC anchor Sue Simmons shocked many when she screamed the “F” word during a live teaser in the video below. While radio uses a delay, television remains truly live — preventing quick action to block such transmissions. This is not unique as these other videos indicate.
What is a bit weird is the calm Simmons who immediately returns and apologizes for the slip.
She tells the viewers:
“We need to acknowledge an unfortunate mistake that i made in one of the teases we bring to you before this program. While we were live, just after 10 o’clock, I said a word that many people find offensive. I’m truly sorry it was a mistake on my part and I sincerely apologize.”
A few years ago, CBS Arthur Chi’en was fired for using the word to deal with morons from the Opie & Anthony show, in this video. I thought the termination was a bit severe under the circumstances.
The Internet is also showing an outburst from Bill O’Reilly, though to be fair, this was an outburst off the air. After Drudge posted it,it has become a sensation even though it is quite dated. Click here.
