Fox 40 News reporter Sabrina Rodriguez was assigned the hard-hitting story of interviewing Mickey the baboon at the Lodi Grape Festival in California, but before she could start writing her local Emmy acceptance speech, she had to deal with a little sexual assault. That is, Mickey decided to latch on to her breast and not let go, which sounds a little scary at first, but I think the local news would be a hell of a lot more fun if the people being interviewed could start feeling up the reporter. You’re a goddamned trail blazer, Mickey.

AJ Clemente made his big debut as an anchor for KFYR, the NBC affiliate in Bismarck, North Dakota, yesterday and if establishing himself as a household name with his very own viral video was his goal, then he is already a huge success. As the broadcast returned from commercial, AJ could be heard muttering, “Fuckin’ shit” as his co-anchor Van Tieu talked about something that didn’t involve curse words.
Shortly after AJ’s Twitter account was temporarily suspended, KFYR’s news director, Monica Hannan quickly issued an apology on Facebook and then a bunch of people whose lives are so boring that they comment on a Bismark TV station’s Facebook page either complained about the naughty words or they showed support for the anchor.
Either way, it’s not a big fucking deal, and if anything it made the guy seem more human, which is something that the news lacks these days. For example, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly would be a lot more tolerable if she just took her shirt off already.
