They Don't Call It The "Boob Tube" for Nothing — Memo to CNN

A CNN segment went fully off the rails on September 15 when FOX Sports radio host Clay Travis made a comment so randomly offensive that it stopped host Brooke Baldwin dead in her tracks.

While trying to make some unintelligible point, Travis made a decision to throw in some shock factor by saying he "only believes in two things: the First Amendment in boobs". And he said so, loudly and proudly, on Brooke Baldwin's CNN show this afternoon.

"I said boobs. I believe completely in the First Amendment and in boobs".

Travis was likewise scrutinized by previous ESPN proofreader Keith Reed who was additionally part of the fragment.

Though his counterparts were visibly upset, Travis shamelessly stood by his remarks.

"I'm done", Baldwin interrupted. I say and write it every day.

The site muting option is a handy means of avoiding audio on some sites, but keeping it in play on those you enjoy hearing from. The new autoplay policies, which will block intrusive videos by default, will hit the dev and canary channels in v63 and v64.

"I'm still there too", Baldwin said in response to Reed, once again asking Travis, "I just want to make sure I'm hearing you correctly: Booze or Boobs". When she confirmed that was indeed the case, she ended the interview early.

"I am a First Amendment absolutist".

Travis makes it clear that he believes in boobs but definitely doesn't have time to respect the women attached to those boobs. "Forgive me, live television happens and you think you heard something, you are not sure and then you realize it happened, so I apologize for him on that".

"Why would you say that live on national television, and with a female host?" "This is conversation over; yanking mics. Bye".

Baldwin tweeted after the segment that she was just shocked, and reiterated that inane comments about women's bodies are not OK for any man to make. "Because I like boobs and the First Amendment, which is exactly what I said". Travis's argument was already on shaky logical ground, and then he chose to completely torpedo any shred of credibility he may have had, making a statement more befitting of one of the 4th graders on South Park than a professional sportscaster.
