I'd give her an award, if my opinion meant anything

Posted by Mike Densmore | June 27, 2007 6:14 PM

I think I love her. :D

Now this journalist is the news. Thank god. She deserves a headline more than Paris ever did.

THANK YOU for making my day! I don't even want to think of the trouble this poor woman is going to get into over this.

Sadly, NBC recently decertified AFTRA as the collective bargaining rep for their National News Division, so there's a very good chance she won't have anyone fighting in her corner when the News Director there tells her she's got 15 minutes to clear out her desk and leave the building.

But still, good on her!

Those guys with her, whoever they are, were obnoxious. Whenever women start taking attention away from them, that type of man always has to start blathering and "joking" non-stop because they love to hear the sound of their own voice. They tried to make light of what she was doing, but she just kept going, and finally got to read some news.

Maybe some of the folks who write for the Slog will follow her lead and shut up about this story already.

SWEET! Hate her co-hosts, love her.

Who was that woman? She needs her own show; screw those other boors.

What she should have done is toss the crumpled up story on the floor and watch the poor boys scamper after it.

#9: Yeah I didn't get the irony there. I thought she was a real newscaster. Those other guys were tools.

Pretty funny....and a bit melodramatic.

Posted by JE | June 27, 2007 8:47 PM

@ 12:

That was Mika Brzenzinski (pronounced "Berzinsky") - remember that name.

Posted by COMTE | June 27, 2007 10:18 PM

Wow. The male newscasters were jackasses. Good on her for holding her ground.

What happened to the days when you left the thing you figured everyone wanted to hear about until last, thereby forcing you to sit through all that boring stuff called "real news"? ;)

From IMDb:
Brian Fantana: Don't get me wrong, I love the ladies. I mean they rev my engines, but they don't belong in the newsroom.
Champ Kind: It is anchor*man*, not anchor*lady*. And that is a scientific fact.
Brick Tamland: I don't know what we're yelling about.
Brian Fantana: You're with us, Ron, what do you think?
Ron Burgundy: [shouting] She... Sh... It's terrible. She has beautiful eyes, and her hair smells like cinnamon.
Brick Tamland: [shouts] Loud noises.

dude on the right is a real fucking prince charming.

Posted by kerri harrop | June 28, 2007 9:42 AM

Wow. She rules. If I were not married I would dedicate my life to making her mine.

Posted by Levislade | June 28, 2007 10:16 AM

I think she should interview Ann Coulter.

Posted by mika fan | June 28, 2007 10:36 AM

Isn't one of them Joe Scarborough?

If so, it's probably his show.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | June 28, 2007 12:10 PM

Oh man. Good for her. I wish more journalists would do things like that.

Did anyone notice how sexist the guys were though? It disgusted me (smelling the ripped paper, "her father called her mousy") What fucking assfucks!

I hope she gets promoted for this. She won't though... too bad

Posted by Charlie | June 28, 2007 12:13 PM

Yes, the gentleman on the right is Joe Scarborough, and yes, he is a world-class jackass, if not exactly on par with O'Reilly or Hannity. The man served four terms in the US House of Representatives; we get what the government we deserve.

I expect Mika Brzezinski's stock will rise from this, as long as she jumps on it. If her agent isn't already shopping her around for book deals and action figures, that's malpractice.
