Dallas and Brad Woodhouse, who are political opposites, were having one their debates on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal call-in show yesterday, when a caller left them shaking their heads down in shame.
Dallas was all happy when someone from his home state called in, until he realized it was his mom, Joy. The two brothers have said that there are a lot of families like theirs, where one kid is a Democrat and the other one is Republican and she had something to say about that. She said, “I disagree that all families are like ours. I don’t know many families that are fighting at Thanksgiving.” She added, “I was very glad that this Thanksgiving was the year you two were supposed to go to your in-laws. And I’m hoping you’ll have something out of your system when you come here for Christmas. I would really like a peaceful Christmas.” She concluded her statement by saying, “I love you both.”
Steve Scully, the host of the show wanted to know what it was like raising those two boys. She told him, “Well, it hasn’t been easy.” And what also won’t be easy, is their family reunion this weekend with their mom. I am sure they are going to have a thing or two to say to her after this call.
If I were C-SPAN, I would give the Woodhouses their own show. Their mom can moderate as the brothers fight it out. I would watch and I hate politics. Would you tune in?
Nina Moini was reporting live from the WCCO newsroom on Sunday about Cyber Monday, when the deals got to be too much for the guy sitting next to her. Pete Bercich was looking at something on the computer when he decided to suddenly lean back. Well, I guess the former Minnesota Viking didn’t know his own strength because the chair feel over backwards as soon as he did it. Thus creating the perfect news photobomb. Something he was going for because he warned his followers on Twitter something was going to happen during the newscast. So was it a photobomb gone wrong or he is bringing slapstick comedy back? Either way, I am so happy someone posted it to Vine so we can watch it on endless loop over and over again!
KMBC’s Nick Bender was doing the weather, when they switched the graphic to the newsteam. That would not have been a problem, had his hand not been on the female anchor’s breast. No word if HR was called over the matter, but if they were it is a sad state of the world that we live in. What? People have complained about a lot less.
via FTVLive Sunrise on 7‘s reporter Mike Amor was reporting about the hooverboard at a Skate Park in LA when a skateboard suddenly hit him on the back of his head.
Thankfully Mike Amor is OK, bruised but OK!
Who knew reporting from a beach was so dangerous?
Don Lemon continues to be CNN’s biggest joke to me, and once again, I think, he made an a$$ of himself yesterday while interviewing one of the woman who accuses of Bill Cosby of raping her. Joan Tarshis claims that the second time she met with Cosby, he allegedly forced her to perform oral sex on him. Lemon asked her, “You know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn’t want to do it.” She responded with, “Oh. Um, I was kind of stoned at the time, and quite honestly, that didn’t even enter my mind. Now I wish it would have.” He then wanted to clarify his comment, “Right. Meaning the using of the teeth, right?” She did know what he was talking about.
What he does his own personal life is one thing; but if you, as a woman or man, are in that position, you don’t know what you would do. I think for him to assume that you are in the right mindset to do that is disgusting and negligent. You never know what you are going to do in a situation like because fear can take over and make you do things you don’t want to do to save yourself. Also in a way, I think, it is like he is blaming her for that incident.
It completely amazes me that he still has a job at CNN, but that is just me.
UPDATE: Don Lemon “apologized” on the air today for his stupid question. I think it is so fake, I am even more nauseated than the question he asked her. He was actually smiling as he addressed his mistake, how rude is that? Than he brings up that he was a victim, like we should feel for sorry for him. I mean, I am sorry he was sexually molested as a kid, but that does not give him the right to ask such an ridiculous question.
It seriously blows my mind that several great people have been let go from CNN in the last year, and yet this guy still has a job.
To see his bullsh!t apology, then click here!
Megyn Kelly was tossing to former Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, when she accidentally switched up the H for an F. By doing that his last name sounded like a curse word. I would expect that from one of the other 24 hour news networks, but not Fox News. Which is something I am sure the others have called him when the cameras weren’t rolling. So I guess you can say, at least Fox News had the balls (if she had any) to call him that to his face.
BTW I have to admit, I loved that he laughed it off and didn’t get angry about it.
Geraldo Rivera once again Tweeted a photo of himself topless, but this time he did it for Celebrity Apprentice. The man who opened Al Capone’s vault to discover nothing, said, “I’m bringing all I got to #CelebrityApprentice.” Not everything because where is his shirt? Someone please find it before the NBC show starts because I don’t want to see that on my HD TV. Do you?

KOIN’s Tim Becker was going live on Election Night about pot being legalized in Oregon when suddenly a woman came up behind him and licked his necked. Causing both of his mics to stand straight up. At least I am assuming the other one rose for the occasion because how could it not?
Now back to the lick, is that the weirdest thing to happen to a reporter during a liveshot? I say it is definitely in the Top 10. Also no word if that woman was smoking some of the stuff that just became legal, but we can all assume she was. Right?
Lester Holt tossed to The Weather Channel’s Mike Siedel on Saturday, but he was ocupado. As in he was taking a pee break, as he was just about to go to live. And you wonder why no one gave him the heads up that was happening. Maybe they were, but he couldn’t see them because he wasn’t facing towards them.
On a positive note, at least he left his mark on Saturday night television. Just not the mark he was hoping for.
WNYW‘s Rosanna Scotto was taping a segment at Rockefeller Center’s infamous ice skating rink yesterday, and while racing her co-anchor, Greg Kelly, she fell. She landed on her arm and you can tell it was bad. So bad, that she suffered a broken wrist and elbow.
She can go back to work when she is ready, but the station says that she will need surgery and rehab.
Hopefully she will be better soon.
