Millions of viewers watching the season finale of Medium on NBC last night got quite an earful from veteran anchor Sue Simmons. During a promo for the 11 O’clock News she is heard off camera, shouting, “What the fuck are you doing?” while teaser footage was rolling for an upcoming story about the rising costs of food. Although Simmons wasn’t exactly caught red handed on video like Arthur Chi’enâ€”who was promptly fired from CBS for letting a f-bomb flyâ€”her voice was very audible and with today’s hyper sensitive environment, not to mention the FCC fines, her career is so over. But you stay classy New York!
Update: She apologized on air at 11:06 p.m., “While we were live just after 10 p.m., I said a word that many people find offensive. I am truly sorry. It was a mistake on my part and I sincerely apologize.”
Update 2: Sue Simmons responds by email, blames it on Chuck!
