Heather…Ronan….Ronan…Heather…

The real question for me is did he catch that himself or did the producer put it in his ear?

I hesitated at first to post this one because it’s an easy gaffe to make and it feeds into an allegedly pre-existing narrative for some but I’ve never discriminated on posting Hazards before and I’m not about to now. Besides, she corrected herself…

Gremlins in the tape room?
Interns at the controls?
Master Control upgraded to Windows 8?
News Corp. free booze night?
Is it live or is it…uh…nevermind…

What a horrendous screw up. It’s not as bad as this…but it’s still pretty damn embarrassing…

It’s one thing to make a mistake on live TV. It’s another thing to make a mistake in tape. And it’s an entirely higher level of screw up when both happen at the same time as is the case here when CNN put out this prized piece of self-infliction by airing live a taped recording that has a huge screw up in it.

How bad is this? Well, it survived the edit bay so the editors should all be fired. And it survived to airtime which means the producers should all be fired.

Basically everyone except Brooke Baldwin and Jake Tapper should all be fired. What a disgrace. It was so bad I had to watch it again just to confirm that my eyes did indeed witness the train wreck my brain thought they witnessed. Total amateur hour time.

Uh…binder clips? I thought maybe they were holding some wiring in place except I didn’t see any wiring (though it’s hard to see anything in detail on this notepad). So, what’s their purpose? Too make the dress tighter?

Ouch…being corrected on live TV is never a good thing…

After O’Brien called the “lazy” comment “not nice,” conservative commentator Will Cain and CNN reporter John Berman jumped in to provide context for Ailes’ comment.

“Everyone’s latching on to the fact that he called the president lazy,” Cain said. “Roger Ailes did go on to say that ‘I’m only quoting from the president directly.’ He talked about an interview that President Obama gave to Barbara Walters where he said, ‘I grew up in Hawaii, which is pretty laid back’. Roger Ailes wasn’t coming up with that on his own. And he made a point of making that.”

“Okay, so the ‘pretty laid back’ to ‘lazy’ is a little bit of a leap to me,” O’Brien pushed back.

“Barack Obama used the word ‘lazy,’” Berman jumped in.

“Oh, interesting. I didn’t know that,” O’Brien said.

“He did. Barack Obama said he feels a laziness in himself that he attributes to his laid back upbringing in Hawaii,” Cain continued.

“Hmm. Interesting,” she replied.

I never get away clean on a trip without having to post about something after putting the blog in park and this trip is no exception. I’ll let NewsBusters’ Brent Baker tell the tail

CNN anchor Deb Feyerick asked Saturday afternoon if an approaching asteroid, which will pass by Earth on February 15, “is an example of, perhaps, global warming?”

Moments earlier, before an ad break, she segued from the Northeast blizzard to a segment with Bill Nye “the science guy,” by pointing to global warming: “Every time we see a storm like this lately, the first question to pop into a lot of people’s minds is whether or not global warming is to blame? I’ll talk to Bill Nye, ‘the science guy,’ about devastating storms and climate change.”

She never got to that question in the subsequent interview at about 3:25 PM EST during CNN Newsroom, instead transitioning from a snowfall update: “Talk about something else that’s falling from the sky and that is an asteroid. What’s coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, of global warming or is this just some meteoric occasion?”

Nye resisted confirming her hypothesis.

Ugh. Trip or no trip, I couldn’t let this one go by without piling on. What an embarrassment for CNN. Truly horrendous. Baker put this as his headline…

Parody or Does She Believe It? CNN Anchor Blames Asteroid on Global Warming

There is absolutely no way this was a parody. If I was in charge of CNN’s anchor rotation, Deb Feyerick would have just seen her last day anchoring a CNN program.

NewsBusters’ Ken Shepherd reports that Martin Bashir fell for a hoax…

While the mainstream media has been transfixed with the Manti Te’o fake girlfriend story, it seems many outlets in the gullible liberal media were biting on another hoax, this one involving Florida Gov. Rick Scott and a band of Satanists supposedly set to stage a rally expressing their support for the Florida Republican.

Among the journalists taken in by the fake story was MSNBC’s Martin Bashir, who could not wipe the devilish grin off his face as he reported what he thought to be a legitimate news story on his January 14 program, in a segment entitled “Dread Scott.”

“Yes, the Satanic Temple in Florida is organizing a rally next week to support Mr. Scott for signing a 2012 law that essentially would allow student-led prayer in school,” Bashir explained, adding that “We spoke to one of the Satanists today about why they support the law” and that the spokesman, one Lucien Greaves, explained “that the law would prevent the marginalization of Satanism and other smaller religious groups and lead to, quote, a boom in religious diversity.’”

Just a few days earlier, Bashir compared Scott to the late Communist despot Nicolae Ceauşescu, so a story like this, although too good to be true, was just too good to not run, apparently.

But alas, the Satanic Temple is not a real, well, Satanic temple. Bashir’s first clue might have been that there’s no physical address or even mailing address listed on TheSatanicTemple.com’s website.
