WSB-TV inadvertently exposes its viewers to the 'fuck' word

Posted By on Tue, Jun 12, 2012 at 2:36 PM

Reporting on this weekend's break-in from inside Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium (or Church, if you're into the whole brevity thing), WSB-TV reporter Ryan Young accidentally stood in front of a sign advertising liquor, beer, wine, spirit (a joke), and piping-hot helpings of "FUCK FEAR."

Romenesko posted a pic ("fuck" is floating beside Young's right shoulder):


Apparently, the newsroom was alerted to the oopsie after a viewer called in to complain. Young 'splained on Facebook ...

A big oops is an understatement!!! We shot around everything inside the bar for our story the package was clean. No one saw it until it aired. In fact we caught a few before the live shot to shoot around. Nothing was in our live intro just in the live tag because we didn't see anything behind me. Of course we would never want something like that up behind me.

I don't know what most of that means. But as a smart fellow-Facebooker responded, "Saw it; didn't notice. I'll take a 'vulgar' bar sign over the usual murder and mayhem any day."
