If you haven't heard about this slip of the touge that Wolf Blitzer made on CNN right after the hurricane hit New Orleans consider yourself informed. This is in the joke forum because obviously he really didn't mean it this way.

He was right about his report raising questions, but I don't think they're the questions he was thinking.

The more I think about this, the more I think it belongs in Education & Media, if for no other reason to showcase hypocrisy. Obviously this happened a long time ago, and this is the first time I've ever heard of it. Believe me if someone from FOX like Bill O'Reilly or Sean Hannity had said this, it would have been on the front page of the NY Times for like a week and the lefties would be howling about it from now to kingdom come.

No Kidding!

Right wing heads would roll for that slip..
You think it's still too late to get it noticed?

I don't know if I would call it a conspiracy. He was just blabbing nonsense and his mouth was about 2 sec. ahead of his mind. Maybe that's exactly what he was thinking and it just came out since he was just making unscripted comments on live video coverage.

You're right though. There would be more crying about this if a more conservative anchor had said this. Liberals can make racially insensitive jokes and no one complains. Blitzer still doesn't top Shepard Smith's slip of the tounge, but it comes close.


"So many, so poor, and so black"
It still cracks me up to hear him say that.

It's true. If this had happened on conservative TV, there would be a lot of outrage. Interesting observation.

Funny as hell, though!

Love your avatar, dbates!

Maybe Wolf is a huge fan of Sir Mix-A-Lot and just got a bit confused:


Sir Mix-A-Lot -- Baby Got Back
Oh my god, Becky, look at her butt
It is so big
She looks like one of those rap guys girlfriends
Who understands those rap guys
They only talk to her because she looks like a total prostitute, ok?
I mean her butt
It's just so big
I can't believe it's so round
It's just out there
I mean, it's gross
Look, she's just so black

I knew I heard the term "so black" somewhere, I finally remembered it was from that song!

To be fair, dj, who actually watches CNN?

I don't really know...I imagine all the people who think FOX is spelled faux.
