I hate to kick the kid when he’s down, but…actually, who am I kidding? I love it.
On the heels of new reports that “Ronan Farrow Daily,” the barely-one-month-old MSNBC show hosted by 28-year old Ronan Farrow, may soon be canceled, comes the latest in a long string of embarrassments.
See the picture above? That’s the image the folks at “RFD” used on Monday to report on the death of former Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison’s husband, Ray Hutchison. The problem? Well, they had the wrong Ray. As you may have noticed, that’s actually ex-Transportation Secretary Ray Lahood in the picture.
Sure, it’s a little cruel to blame the tyke for something he probably had no control over. It’s just that it’s not the first time it’s happened. It was only last week that Ronan’s show experienced another “graphics fail,” as a poorly worded question on the screen made it seem like he was asking viewers whether 9/11 Trade Tower jumpers were heroes or not.
And let’s not forget Farrow’s rather bizarre news priorities, such as his strange tribute to grown men who love “My Little Pony.”
Finally, in what was perhaps Ronan’s biggest claim to fame, I’d be remiss not to remind you of his journey to Kenya in search of Obama lovers.
What a month it has been. If rumor holds up, “Ronan Farrow Daily” will be axed even faster than MSNBC’s 2006 debacle, “Weekends with Maury and Connie.” How will The New York Times ever rebuild Ronan’s image again after that? They’re hoping he’ll be president someday, you know.
