A few weeks ago, we told you that Richmond WTVR-6-CBS reporter Tim Trudell, during a “look live” piece, said in an out-take that aired mistakenly, “My fucking mouth won’t work.”

Tim contacted us by e-mail and insisted…. “It is an incorrect quote. I never said what was listed there.”

Tim was correct. We were wrong, and we sincerely apologize.

According to an aircheck provided by our pals at Virginia’s VARTV, the actual quote was, “I can’t fucking talk here.”

If you want a real laugh, check out the reaction from studio anchors Rob Cardwell and Stephanie Rochon, seconds after the blooper aired. It’s a classic moment in local news.

    yeah, he gives you the sneaking suspicion that he slips roofies in girls’ drinks at the clubs.

    the head anchor looked so flustered.

    i love when i get to use the word flustered.

  • The Good Reverend

    I’m an even bigger fan of “flustrated”.

  • Just Plain Bob

    Your strange new vocabulary frightens and intrigues me. Tell me more. Can i find these words in your Roosevelt Thesaurus?
