    This buffoon threw a fit over newroom layoffs in January, tried to be a big martyr and resigned, then came back 2 days later.

    This is his latest:

    I loved his smart-ass intro after the commercial break.

    This dude's in Hawaii. You'd think he'd be a little more mellow.

    Perhaps he needs a lei. Or a lay.

    Hey, Luggie, if anyone in your shop ever pulled that crap, is their desk empty the next day?

    Screw him. It wasn't going over the air. You deal with the echo or you nicely go to commerical break and not make a snide comment about the system. What a buffoon.

    If you are professional, you deal with it.
    This guy needs a diaper change.

    Figured this thread was about our friend Stuart Scott.

    Oh well.

    I can tell you my assistant news director watched the video, laughed his ass off, and said he would have fired the guy before they came back from that commercial break.

    I understand his frustration, though - from everything I've heard, those automated systems are an absolute nightmare.

    I've been to Hawaii a couple times this year and happened to catch this dude doing the news one night. He's a bit of a character.. He rambled on for a few minutes about the 24 episode that was on that particular night and this was at the start of the newscast.

    If you close your eyes when you listen to the clip, you'll swear it's Bill O'Reilly.
