Video: CNN Weather Man Loses It

Gosh darn pushy anchors. Let the poor guy talk and explain what he's showing before yapping your flapper.

I'm sure the extra long shift and crazy workload made for some tense moments.
 
I'd love to see it, but that link doesn't work. Even if I trim the extra tags off the end of it, I still get a "file not found" message on the page.

EDIT: Nevermind. It's just picky about which browser you use.
 
shepard smith interview

that link wouldnt work for me but i think i saw what you were talking about, the guy said to the woman "would you let me talk?!" or something?..i saw on fox yesterday shepard smith was talking to people in the quarter who were riding out the storm on the phone and he asked this guy "why are you staying ?!!" and the guy was like 'why dont you mind your own fucking business' lol gotta love it. anyone have a clip of that?
 
This is a flaky codec and didn't work on one of my computers, so here it is:

TRANSCRIPT:

(CNN, 4:32 am EDT, tossing between newsdesk anchor and weatherman, radar animation in background)
WEATHERMAN: ...couple of hours ago, so it has filled in a little bit, filled in with some air...
ANCHOR: Ok, so...
WEATHERMAN: ...by this lower pressure, but Camille...
WEATHERMAN: ...Chad, Chad, Chad, Chad...
WEATHERMAN: LET ME TALK HERE!
ANCHOR: (meekly, smoothly) Translate that for us! I don't know what it means! What does that mean?
WEATHERMAN: (Throwing papers down) Oh if only you would let me talk! (closes eyes, recomposes) Camille...

It would be worth determining if this is authentic -- I'd figure with all the night owls here on ST someone would have seen it. If so, man, that's good AMS Seal of Approval material!

You have to scroll down to the bottom and click the free button, then you can download it.

Man is that hilarious. That lady was being really annoying. I can certainly sympathize with the guy. He should have whipped out a squirt gun! :lol:

I don't think he said f--k you though, I think he said, "Well, if you would just let me talk!"

Yeah, I wasn't going to post it because of "adult content" but I can if you want.

Whoa! You have it?? I laughed myself sick when I heard it live! I'd love to DL it!

I don't think he said f--k, I watched it a few times I can't see it or hear it. Even goes to show the pros get tired.

It's MPEG1. Also, I was switching between a few channels overnight but did not see this. However, I don't really know how it could be fake.
 
Just downloaded it.. it's real all right.. (without the f-bomb). Very funny!

The female anchor is extremely rude and annoying... not surprised the guy snapped at all...
 
When Good Morning America came on at 7am EST Charlie Gibson got caught throwing down his papers as they rolled the big opening scene tape. Not sure exactly what happened, but he was pretty mad.
 
..

Anybody have that video of the citizen telling the news anchor to f-off live on the air? :twisted:
 
Nice! :) I saved both of those clips into my personal archives. I don't blame the weather guy at all as most news anchors in my opinion are air-headed Glamor-shots clones. This of course coming from a non-Glamor shots kind of guy who frightens small children and scares small, cute, furry animals. ;-)

Anybody who watched Harold Taft on Channel 5 in the DFW area years ago can testify about the way he'd react to dingy anchors. He would "admonish", in a wise but stern grandfatherly way, the on-air anchors when on occassion they'd quip something pretty lame or stupid as they "turned it over to the weather desk". I always cracked up because the anchors would be quite humbled and hushed as a result....completely decimating their mouthy on-air personality into one of a quiet, sullen school kid. LOL!! I'd give just about anything to see a few of those clips today. :)
 
We had CNN on at work and I was watching this particular segment. There needs to be more shown from this MPEG. IT was really light-hearted humor. After all it was 4am in the morning, and this was nothing more than a little bit of comic relief. Trust me.
 
That's what I was going to guess - I'd like to see more before and after to see what all happened...
 
It sounds like that woman is kind of foolish...I'm sure he would have explained it when he was finished....sometimes I get really sick of these anchors...
