Assured that he was indeed on delay, Halprin proceeded to say that he “thought he was kind of a [nickname for Richard] yesterday,”

The highly trained and professional MSNBC staff* then responded:



"The Truth will out!"

*monkeys with broadcast equipment and crystal meth
I heard about that this morning. Hahahahaha
How is it these people even report on bloopers from other people, work with this equipmment like forever and then don't know the mike's on/the delay isn't on etc. ?
Or did someone (who wanted his J.O.B.) purposely allow him to think the delay was on?

I'll take the path of least resistance. I think the knuckleheads running the show think of themselves a clever entertainers -- for all I know they are. But it seems that they mistook their cleverness as performers for technical cleverness. Thus the Wizard can address all manner of personal feelings of inadequacy with simple props, like a watch and a diploma, but still can't operate that darned balloon.

It's like pretending that the utterance is somehow mitigated by the bleeping.
But people still know what was said. It's only a pretense of "polite" conversation that has been maintained.

Sure. Some kids may not understand what was just said.
But you can be positive they can read between the lines while their ages are still in single digits...

The rudeness demonstrated to the president with this act is not hidden by a <bleep>. The <bleep> may satisfy the FCC censors that say "You can't say <bleep> or <bleep> or <bleep> on the air", but there's another standard involved here that is clearly violated even if it was a <bleep>.

Meh. I'm off my soap-box.
The original point with those bleeps is adults knew but kids didn't.

Of course Jon Stewart had a hilarious take on the "dick" remark.
