    And not crap, either.

    And I thought it was going to be the 'other' C word...

    Certainly Tiffany Million would be familiar with that "c" word he uttered.

    Somewhere there's an editor who should be in deep, deep shit.

    That wasn't live. That was a taped standup that he screwed up and started over, but the editor didn't bother to look at what they were cutting and laid down the whole thing.

    The reporter will probably get in trouble for this, and while it's never particularly smart to commit the word "cocksucker" to tape, it's really not his fault it aired.

    See, I think it was live, but he THOUGHT it was being taped for later. That's how it looked to me.

    He was taping what is known as a "look live." It's designed to look like a live report but it's really on tape.

    Right, I get that. It's hard to tell without seeing the beginning. I've found the live live ones are the ones where there's a pause before they start talking, because there's a delay between the studio throwing to them and them starting.

    I just find it hard to believe that WAS edited. That's not a slight mistake like it slipped into the middle of a sentence. That was all alone, and I find it hard to believe ANYONE was asleep enough to let it go on edit.

    I think there will be a parade through the streets of Calgary if Roger Millions is finally off the air.

    It happens now and then because the editor will find the "in point" of the edit where the guy starts talking, then scan quickly ahead to the "out point" where he signs off, then make the edit without actually watching what he's just done.

    First, that's not the C-word I was expecting.

    Second, it's entirely his fault if he uses that word with a camera on him. To put it on someone else is to be the writer who says "the desk should have caught that."
