FOX Apologizes For The On-Air Dong

Monday, December 08, 2008

Just a quick update to the "exposing" post earlier today in which Fox accidentally aired Visanthe Shiancoe's nether region. The network has issues an apology and here is their statement via the Star Tribune....

Shiancoe was inadvertently shown naked on television while a FOX camera crew taped owner Zygi Wilf’s presentation of the game ball to coach Brad Childress’ 19-year-old son Andrew, who is joining the Marine Corps on Monday.

Shiancoe was standing behind and to the side of Wilf with a towel partly covering his body. But not completely.

“It obviously was an oversight on our part and we apologize,” said FOX Sports vice president of Communications Dan Bell.
Well that was short wasn't it? I guess you don't really have to draw out a lengthy apology when it comes to on-air nekkidness though.

Well, they could have said, "We are sorry for showing Visante Shiancoe's dong to the entire world and we hope that we have not caused him any harm in his personal life. We should not have gone to the game ball presentation to Childress' son as there were images in that shot not fit for women under 18, children, and most men. We apologize and we hope that this kind of incident will never happen again."

BTW, AA, how's the hangover from last night? ;-)

How is that going to cause Shiancoe harm in his personal life? That thing is going to have women breaking down his door.

There's no need to insult Shiancock ... I mean Shiancoe like that.

The cameraman was gay. However, I doubt that Shiancoe is interested, I'm pretty sure he likes girls.

It's about time they apologized for Bill O'Reilly's blatant cockery.

@ James Craven: He may be telling the truth. Then again, that would be quite a feat...
