Fired for What!? - News Anchor's Tough Start

Today's Fired for What!? is a little different in that I have secured an exclusive interview with the fire-ee, A.J. Clemente (actually, it's all fake using his publicly available tweets - in case that wasn't obvious).

So A.J., I understand that you think you're ready to anchor the news. What do the News Director and GM think?

Sounds great! I can't wait to see you on the air. Let's see how it goes (warning: includes profanity) . . .



(Click here to view video online if embedded video does not display). Wow . . . A.J., I'm actually not sure if that could possibly have gone any worse. What do you think?

Yeah, that's what I just said. Did I hear you call someone "gay"?

Well, I guess that's one good thing, right? Do you think this will impact your career at KFYRTV?

Ouch. I guess it will probably be awhile before you get back on television, huh?

The Today Show!? Well, I guess all's well that ends well. Thanks for your time A.J., and good luck.
