Video: Cavuto pranks Laura Ingraham

posted at 5:44 pm on September 18, 2007 by Allahpundit

The Today Show did this to her too but less overtly as a goof than out of what seems to have been simple thoughtlessness.

Hot Air loves itself some Ingraham but this is the stop on the conservative express where the big A gets off.

Early and prolonged exposure to “Beevis and Butthead.”

Bottom line – Fox News has every right to show what they want. But I’m sick and tired of even the news stations glamorizing these pathetic skanks. They spend entirely too much discussing that kind of garbage – like I care if Britney or KFed gets the kids! They should leave that “news” for Entertainment Tonight and The View. Fox never misses a chance to roll what used to be considered very risque – nearly soft porn. When cable TV first came out, Cinemax (“Skinemax”) used to show that kind of thing late at night. Now it’s daytime fare.

These days I usually tune out and get my news on the web.

Let me know when Cavuto starts wearing lip gloss.

The problem with the Paris Hilton-Carl’s Jr. commercial was that the sandwich they were trying to sell was called the spicy chicken sandwich, not the slutty chicken sandwich.

Anyone that thinks we are going to get class or values from anyone or anything on TV is deluded! They don’t get it and never will. The answer is simply not to watch these idiots! I have stopped and don’t plan to start. They offer nothing of value for my life!

I didn’t notice Paris until the 2nd time the clip aired,…I was eyeballing the burger. Now that’s one damn good lookin burger!

Alden Pyle on September 19, 2007 at 8:24 AM

Oh my God. Your 14-year old son saw Paris Hilton scantily clad? He must be heartbroken

—-I think it was the lesbian kiss that this person was uncomfortable with. I agree with her. It disgusts me and why do we put up with this?

stenwin77 on September 19, 2007 at 9:36 AM

I’m with Ingraham on this. If you want to see skin, watch a show where you expect to see skin. Let’s not pornify every channel and show on the networks. I wonder if the V-chip catches stuff like that…

craig on September 19, 2007 at 9:37 AM

The envelope is there for a reason. And it is already quite pushed and stretched out of shape, thank you. Presumably Hollywood/Mad Ave wanted this freedom for a reason, so do something useful with it.

see-dubya on September 18, 2007 at 7:13 PM

I’m not to the point of protesting or even writing a letter yet, but I do agree here.

I disagree with Laura that porn is harmful in and of itself, but I fully agree that it should be in its own category so that only those who want to watch it will be able to watch it.

For everyone out there who disagrees, how would you feel if you were just trying to watch the news but had to also sit through tiny sermons or something else you’re not interested in seeing?

Again, I don’t care enough about this to do anything more than respond here, but images like that just have no place in serious news.

LOL!

I prefer to avoid moralism too. Yet free markets and a a free society require a measure of ethical infrastructure, and when the requisite societal values deteriorate, the system becomes dysfunctional. (Capitalism, for example, requires business transparency/honesty/accountability, among other things.) In this context, I think Laura’s message is important.

petefrt on September 19, 2007 at 10:13 AM

That was funny!

CP on September 19, 2007 at 10:31 AM

Brutal. And Neil better hope he’s wearing the right color at the next cocktail party Laura shows up at. What does Cabernet match in his wardrobe, I wonder…?

Jaibones on September 18, 2007 at 6:02 PM

Red shirt or brown pants?

BKennedy on September 19, 2007 at 10:52 AM

I was totally expecting to see various images of Laura I. being flashed across the screen during her comment segment. ;)
She’s hot! ;)

Bearhopi on September 19, 2007 at 2:04 PM

Yeah. Well, what can I tell you. When they pass a law forcing me to marry someone I don’t want and reproduce, I’ll do my duty.

Allahpundit on September 18, 2007 at 9:22 PM

That’s the frontier spirit. I believe that exact scenario is a plank in Mitt’s platform.

Jaibones on September 19, 2007 at 3:09 PM

BKennedy on September 19, 2007 at 10:52 AM

He tends to favor a white dress shirt; that might go badly for him…

Jaibones on September 19, 2007 at 3:10 PM

Bearhopi on September 19, 2007 at 2:04 PM

Ironic. I believe one of the points of her campaign is that she doesn’t want you talking about whether or not she is “hot”.

Jaibones on September 19, 2007 at 3:11 PM

Allahpundit on September 18, 2007 at 9:22 PM

Well, judging from the Hamnation vid, a good first step might be to get out some. Then, get some friends who will actually let you tag along when they go out with their, ahem, hot girlfriends.

One thing leads to another, you grow a beard, have 6 kids, and western civilization is saved. It’s really that easy.

Jaibones on September 19, 2007 at 3:14 PM

That’s messed up
