I have a deep love for all who subverts the constant stream of mediocrity that is our media environment, particularly as regards the mindless ptter, which forms the bulk of television, even if they inadvertently subvert, as Kanye West does with his big mouth. But I guess when Tracy Morgan says outrageous things and causes of mock horror, he did it on purpose, and just play as a wide oops, that broadens the fun of making fun of everyone who invests too in the world of television political stupidity.
TNT issued a statement apologizing for crude remarks about Tracy Morgan on Sarah Palin last night inside the pre-game show NBA: “It’s unfortunate Mr. Morgan has shown a lack of trial on the air with his inappropriate comments. We apologize for any inconvenience or offense it may have caused. ”
During the live broadcast yesterday, co-host Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley Morgan submitted 30 Rock a microphone and asked him to settle a bet: Tina Fey or Sarah Palin? “He and I have this discussion all the time,” Smith sang, referring to Barkley. “[Morgan] the only one who can fix it? Tina Fey or Sarah Palin? “They clearly do not claim that the woman was smarter or more in a race.
Morgan said as he would if he were on stage. “Yo, let me tell you something about Sarah Palin. The good masturbation material.” Co-host Ernie Johnson quickly pulled down the curtain, saying “I want to thank Tracy Morgan for your visit. “
