Anchor Walks Off Live TV in Disgust After Refusing to Report on Kardashians

(ANTIMEDIAHow many people do you know that would agree with the following statement? “I’ve had enough of the Kardashians…I’m sick of this family! (They’re) a non-story!” I believe most of us, including myself, would shout “amen” at the top of their lungs like it’s a Sunday in the South if we heard someone in the media utter those words. Well, get ready to holler.

The above exclamations are actually direct quotes spoken by Orlando-area news anchor John Brown during a live broadcast of “Good Day Orlando” on Friday.

After covering the usual local news, the show began to transition into a segment about one of the Kardashian daughters recently naming her new pet rabbit “Bruce.” (Just typing that sentence made me want to launch my fist into the computer screen where my pupils are currently fixated. Rest assured, I’m still typing, so I obviously mustered up all of the self-control in my being and refrained.) That’s when Brown interrupted the correspondent reporting the “story” in mid-sentence:

“I am having a good Friday, so I refuse to talk about the Kardashians today,” said Brown. “You are on your own, Amy. I can’t do it.” 

As the program’s co-host storms off set, he can be heard off-screen shouting, “I’ve had enough Kardashians. I can’t take any more Kardashian stories on this show.”

After a replacement anchor rushes in to fill the void left on the morning show’s couch, the fed-up Brown — whose microphone stays on despite walking off set — can be heard continuing his rant away from the cameras: “I don’t care about this family. I’m sick of this family. It’s a non-story!”

The initial member of the news team that introduced the story agreed with Brown’s sentiments, but continued to talk about the Kardashians anyway.

Brown later posted video of his outburst on Facebook, saying, “Sorry I lost my mind a bit, although it was partially in jest!”

“I did feel better though after I was done though.”

All-in-all, I would say Mr. Brown kept his composure and handled the situation better than most people given the task of reading celebrity gossip disguised as news for a living.

  4. Mr. Luke R.: Are you a woman hater? Do you have words like that for men? What did that blonde on the couch do to you? Nothing. She's just a girl/woman and she's not a dumb cunt. I had an ex that would call women that a lot, but that was back in the 80's. That word was used a lot in the 70's, in referring to a woman, by men that had resentments towards women for whatever reason. I had a dad, have two brothers, and a son. I like men and don't have nasty words for them as they are people too. I wish you would see it my way, it's the better way.

  5. Good for him, they are a non issue and the only reason the media wants you to pay attention to this awful family is so that the government can keep us busy with nonsense so they can get away with more crimes against humanity! More people need to stand up! Thank you!

  7. Virginia Gomez, why would you let a word hold control over you. It's a word. Do you know what words are? They're nothing. They mean nothing. They're sounds we make to symbolize the abstract. In reality, cunt holds no more power than you allow it to. Stupid cunt.

  8. Half year ago,after getting fired from my old job , i've had luck to stumble upon this awesome company online that was a life saver for me… They offer jobs for which people can work online from their home. Last paycheck after working for them for three months was $12000… Great thing about is that only requirement for the job is basic typing skills and internet connection…

  9. Mustafa Sümen Ich verstehe nicht, warum du so unfreundlich sind . Die Größe der Prozentsatz hängt von der Größe der Gesamtbevölkerung von dem Sie sprechen . Im Hinblick auf die Weltbevölkerung , ist 1% des 7 Milliarden 70 Millionen . Ich war eigentlich was sich auf die " 1% " , die während der " Occupy " -Bewegung in den USA in populären Gebrauch kam . Thwy sind es, die die Medien und damit die Zirkusse wir beobachten 24/7 steuern.

  13. my girl friends in HS and I made up evil names to call men based on their parts because we hated hearing this discriminating BS from angry males. Please explain how someone you know nothing about can be classified as a cunt? is that pure reduction to the body part you like in terms of its having rejected you or tis known to be out of your range? We can call men dicks but you all like your dicks and think theyre great so its not an insult. hey Scroat brain, ( and I have more evidence for that than you had for cunt) that kind of talk will not get you any. Its a double bind aint it tho-

  18. Virginia Gomez I believe you misinterpreted Hugh,Yes it is a derogitory term but there is a time and place for all language and in this case I believe that it was just. Its hardly inappropriate to refer to decievers in an offensive fashion. The main problem with PC activists, is that(in this case its easy to misinterpret its the internet) you dont take into account the context or the persons body language, spoken language accounts for 10% of conversation 90% is body language. From what I've observed in a lot of cases, when someone uses an offensive word PC activists are(from their body language) being extremely offensive and intrusive, and the person their taring into meant no offense or harm by it. PC activists should really speak their language(body language is different in every country) before claiming that someone else was being inappropriate, because most times the PC activists are actually the rude offensive and inappropriate ones. but social networking eliminates most of our language so I cant hold you that standard. if he'd said "that blonde bitches insipid laugh" that would have been sexist, please dont take offense, I'm not saying your wrong for opposing sexism. But please make sure that someones trying to be offensive before you tare into them, otherwise your the one whose rude and inappropriate and in some way sexist, for believing that anytime a man uses a derogitory term against a woman he's sexist. I will call a woman a sexist name if she assumes I'm being sexist, because I know I'm not and if they want to see offensive I can be very offensive, same with someone claiming im a homophobe for saying Fag. My big brother is Bisexual and I love him the same, I have good friends who are feminists, They know I say inappropriate things, not to hurt anyones feelings, or to demean anyone. I say it because anyone who claims a word isnt appropraite and feels they need to impose on someone(this doesnt apply to racists or sexists you should say something) for having used a negative term non-offensively or where its appropriate, should be bothered constantly till they either stop their bullshit, or actually learn their language. I believe it was completely appropriate because of the definition of the adjective and who it was directed at. If language is so important to you become fluent in body language, Then you'll clearly see a persons intention. And also "my way is the better way" is the reason wars are waged and people hate one another, because they cant accept difference, they cant fathom the idea that someone who believes the opposite see's their belief in the same light you see yours. People who impose their opinions on others are facist, they believe they're proggresive but they're doing the same thing people have always done. Stomp their feet and say I'm right, How about instead of trying to "enlighten" others with your ideology, you just accept the fact that some people are different and I cant get along with them, I can't force them to believe my idea because not everyone can get along thats just how it is. Fight sexism where it matters, in government and business, out and about your just being an overly opinionated asshole, truly adopting your American heritage. You want to be a Positive empowered female, than dont be a facist and dont assume someones massagonistic, because they use a term you consider appropriate. I'm so confident that I'm not sexist or racist that I will say such things in the name of offending PC fasism.

  19. Can this porn star not bring out another vid? I can't see any other attributes she posses.. other than monopoly money and the free publicity she gets, even if negative.

  25. Luke Roberts I'm not a feminist, because they're facist. I wasnt talking to you so I dont think I give a shit about your opinion. If you could read beyond a 5th grade level, you probablly would have realized it isnt much to read. But I cant expect someone who sits on a comment page trying to insult people, to have very much depth if any.

  27. I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do,
