TV News: Cynthia

I didn't realize that Channel 8's new morning anchor, Cynthia Izaguirre, was the newswoman in the infamous clip where she previews an item about a blind mountaineer by saying, "But he's gay. I mean, he's gay. Excuse me, he's blind". She has another uncomfortable YouTube moment with a drunk Dale Hansen from New Year's Eve.

Why does everyone make such a big deal about her last name? Even her old station does in this farewell.

Speaking of news bloopers, I hadn't heard about this one from 2006 until recently. BBC News 24 was due to interview an internet expert about the Apple Computers vs Beatles lawsuit. Instead, they ended up with Guy Goma who had shown up for a job interview. The look on his face when he's introduced is priceless. He gamely tries to answer her questions, and she is obviously not listening to his answers or can't understand his accent.
