This may come as a surprise to you, but many CNN news anchors are complete doofuses, who, unlike us rational, never hyperbolic, attractive bloggers, are prone to making comparisons THAT ARE THE WORST THING EVER. Take, for instance, Martin Savidge. While interviewing a passenger on the now famous Carnival poop cruise, he compared their five-day inconvenience to Hurricane Katrina. He then got owned.
While interviewing one of the passengers, Rob Kenny, [CNN anchor] Martin Savidge likened the situation’s “isolation factor” to Hurricane Katrina.
“They never heard anything either,” said Savidge. “Your mind begins to race…you think you’re all alone. And of course, any rumor becomes solid fact.”
To which Kenny responded: “Let’s put that in perspective. I mean, Katrina was a major devastation. We’re on a freaking cruise ship, and we’re just out having a good time…That angle, I get it because it is just the isolation of communication but two different things. Two different things.” (Via)
You can watch the footage on Gawker, or you can pretend the interview never happened and that CNN just showed old GG Allin footage instead. Now THAT’S who you compare being covered in sh*t to.
