Disaster whore

Oh it’s a fine line the media attempts to walk. Take Anderson Cooper – during the whole Katrina situation I said to the girlfriend “I really like that Anderson Cooper”. Well that day has passed. Note to Anderson – if you show up at every disaster you go from being the next Peter Jennings to being the next Barbara Walters in a flash.

BTW – I don’t care, I’m taking credit for the term disaster whore.

    There’s an awesome t-shirt opportunity right there: a photo of Anderson Cooper (perhaps with Fox’s disaster leech Shepard Smith, too) on the front with just the words “DISASTER WHORE” on the back.

    Actually, that’s a great band name, too.

    “Ladies and gentlemen, we’re ‘Disaster Whore’! Good night! Please buy a CD or t-shirt before you leave!”

    Nice one, Spencer. Good job!

    I think you coined a gem phrase, although I still like him. I’m a sucker.
