XM's Opie & Anthony Get CBS Reporter to Swear Live On Air

Radio personalities Opie & Anthony, continually pushing the envelope of decency, today, stood behind New York CBS 2 reporter had an intern stand behind Arthur Chien with an O & A sign shouting "XM Satellite Radio!" Chien, believing his network had cut aways to another feed, turned to the duo and shouted, "What the fuck is your problem?" Humorously, Chien did not know he was still on the air, live for all New Yorkers to see. Whoever has footage of this precious moment, please send it to us.

UPDATE: Video footage is here.

Get YOU facts straight? Speak and spell before you call somebody else a TOOL.

Steve, thanks for letting us know about this...O&A have always been great at getting play out of the media for free through their listeners...viral and buzz at its best.

Opieanthony.com has the video.

NOTE: That other guy in the background putting the middle finger up in front of the sign is "Crazy Cabbie" - future inmate and current loser of the Stern show.

That's kinda funny, but Newsbreakers.org sorta raised the bar when it comes to jumping live shots. They seem to be a bit more organized and methodical about it, but I like the idea.

Through intense investitgation and research.....scientists have discovered that the lowest life form know to humans are radio personalities. aka stand-ups who are to ugly to perform in public. To their credit there are 518,400 minutes in a year.....and the fact that they swore once thinking they were off the air....attacking them seems fucking stupid. oops

When TV news anchors can get away with terrorizing America by saying "These toys can kill your child. Tune in tonight at eleven" or "Going to the Beach. Find out if there are sharks in your area, tonight at 11", these newspeople get whatever they deserve.

Why would they intentionally scare us and ask us to tune in tonight for the story. That is terrorizing the public into tuning in.

Why can't they just tell us what can kill our children, instead of sensationalizing the story for their own corporate greed.

Nobody antagonized Arthur Ch'ien into cursing on the air. He cursed on his own. Maybe his wife pushed him away the night before. He certainly had something else on his mind. He was not in focus.
