CNN live from ladies' room during Bush address - TV's worst ever ooops?
by Gulliver

It had to be one of television's worst ever ooops! We were referring to CNN anchorwoman Kyra Phillips's open mic blunder bang in the middle of a George W Bush broadcast.

The hilarious gaffe occurred when the reporter left the studio to go to the ladies room during the US President's address live from New Orleans a year on from Hurricane Katrina.

Bush was in full flight explaining the failings to devastated New Orleans and how if there was another natural disaster the US must react better.

But viewers, instead of focusing on the President's remarks were tuning into this conversation which was clearly audible over the President's words:

Kyra Phillips: "Assholes. Yeah, I'm very lucky in that regard with my husband. My husband is handsome and he is genuinely a loving, you know, no ego (unintelligible) you know what I'm saying. Just a really passionate, compassionate great, great human being. And they exist. They do exist. They're hard to find. Yup. But they are out there."

Woman: "We'll see. He's going to come, you know, he's set for an extended visit. (unintelligible)"

Phillips: "I mean, that's, that's how you figure it all out, those extended visits. (laughter)"

Woman: "Yeah, but my mom, I think she really likes him."

Phillips: "Mom's got a good vibe? Good."

Woman: "Yeah, my brother's the one that (unintelligible)"

Phillips: "Brother-of course, brothers have to be, you know, protective. Except for mine. I've got to be protective of him."

Woman: (unintelligible)

Phillips: "Yeah. He's married, three kids, but his wife is just a control freak."

Unidentified woman 2: "Kyra."

Phillips: "Yeah, baby?"

Woman 2: "Your mic is on. Turn it off. It's been on the air."

When she got back on air Phillips offered this apology to viewers: "And by the way, we apologize for a little bit of an interruption there."

CNN has since issued its own official apology "to our viewers and the President for the disruption," and apologized to the White House.

In a subsequent statement, CNN explained the mishap as "a technical malfunction with the audio board. We're addressing how this happened and why it was not more promptly corrected on air."

We wonder what Phillips had to say by way of apology to her brother and sister-in-law!
