CNN Anchor Flubs Audio During Bush Katrina Speech
Most of you know that I’m a serious CNN addict. I’m not a huge fan of Kyra Philips, but wow, this is pretty bad. The above clip is from Tuesday’s Live Today morning coverage at 1pm — about 4 hours after she went on the air. Apparently (listen to the clip) her mic was left on during her visit to the bathroom. Kyra’s catching a lot of flak for this (most probably from her sister-in-law… again, listen to the clip) but jeez — aren’t there techs or people at CNN to make sure stuff like this doesn’t happen? Who was watching to the Feed-to-Air monitor when all this was going out to satellite? More importantly, it’s interesting how we hear Ms. Philips talking in the bathroom, and then moments later (like 8 seconds later) we hear her addressing viewers — now that’s all news all the time.
Cut Kyra a break, folks. Everyone deserves a bathroom break.
