Today's Cartoon: CNN Anchor Kyra Phillips Leaves Microphone On In Washroom

For those of you who don't know who Kyra Phillips is, she's the CNN news anchor who comes in to read the teleprompter on weekdays between one and four in the afternoon. Her job as a "news presenter" is quite simple (or so I thought), look pretty while reading the "news" and oh yeah... make sure her microphone is switched off when she goes to the washroom!

So Ms. Phillips has a problem with "control freaks" eh? Well, I'm pretty sure that if there were a few more working for CNN, her Thanksgiving dinner wouldn't be as awkward as it's no doubt going to be this year. Hey I know, maybe they could hire her sister-in-law to make sure that she turns her microphone off whenever she goes to the washroom to take a dump on her ;)

While I'm quite certain that this was all just an honest mistake, which will immediately be "remedied" on some poor underpaid intern; it's kind of revealing as to just how much respect the media has lost for President Bush, when they are using his speech on the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina as an opportunity to go and gossip in the ladies room.
