CNN Apologizes For Toilet-Talk Leak During Bush Speech
CNN has apologized for accidentally transmitting 90 seconds of conversation between two women in the studio toilet while viewers watched President Bush make a live speech from New Orleans.
Listeners found themselves listening to anchorwoman Kyra Phillips telling another unidentified woman positive things about her husband but also about her ‘control freak’ sister-in-law.
Shortly after this another voice is heard advising Phillips to switch off her microphone as her voice is being transmitted live, with the chat abruptly ending. CNN has apologized to viewers and the president for the gaffe.
