Scandals, lies and open mics

You've probably heard about CNN's Kyra Phillips leaving her mic on during a trip to the john while covering President Bush's Katrina speech on Tuesday. If you didn't, check it out. She called her sister-in-law a control freak. At least Matt Meister didn't get in trouble at home.

Funny story: Our own entertainment editor Warren Epstein did the same thing Friday during the "Friday On the GO!" feature he does on KOAA. No in-laws were harmed in the incident, however.

Meanwhile, CBS got caught retouching a publicity photo of Katie Couric to offer a, ah, slimmer profile.

As far as I know, Warren isn't guilty of that one.

Oh, I'm sure he did. His keeper has been on him for many years now to clean up his language. He's still not out of the woods. The FCC hasnt played their hand yet, and NP&G is still quite pissed at station management.

The bit with Katie disturbs me a little... She's hardly in need of a weight loss program - so I'm hard pressed to see why ANYONE in the photo department would see the need to air brush "down to size" like that.

Did they think the public won't notice when they tune in for the evening news?

Very very odd.

That open mic is pretty classic though. It's like that scene from The Naked Gun.
