There’s no doubt the ongoing US presidential elections have left many of us resorting to the use of unsavoury language.
So, it’s easy to sympathise with MSNBC reporter Ken Dilanian who mistakenly lost his shit during a live cross yesterday.
Dilanian, reporting from home, was being interviewed about how the Trump administration was dealing with president-elect Joe Biden’s win.
The studio anchor asked: “Ken Dilanian has some new reporting on… how the Trump administration is handling the transition with the incoming Biden team or not handling it, we should say, to a certain extent. Ken, what have you learned?”
Not realising he was now live, Dilanian responded with a quick fire: “Oh shit. Fuck.”
An apologetic Dilanian later tweeted that he mistakenly hung up on the control room mid-broadcast, but his mic was still on.
“Perils of playing producer, cameraman and tech support all at the same time from home,” Dilanian tweeted.
