Rory Marcus Is Not Dead – It’s Markas – Not Marcus.

January 5, 2010

It’s Markas….not Marcus.

Just be aware, the only folks who went to the Rory Markas story on my blog were those who thought it was spelled Rory Marcus.  So who am I to stop the fickle finger of misspelled fate?  Better to pander to those who can’t spell – you the reader.  So if you’re reading this, you didn’t take the trouble to figure out how to spell a simple name.  Tich tich.

Second thought: maybe you all work or more likely intern at Fox 11 in L.A.

Mark As Rory

January 5, 2010

On Fox News 11 in L.A. came the news of the sudden death of an obviously well-loved sportscaster/L.A. Angels At Anaheim play-by-play guy Rory Markas, 54, as was lamented by anchor Steve Edwards, entertainment gal, Dorothy Loosely and great-looker, empty headed all purpose style-file fill-in Lauren Sanchez.

So, everyone’s down at the mouth, we miss Rory, a tragic loss, not just for baseball, but for humanity in general, not just for the Angels at Anaheim, but for the entire sport of baseball, not just to Fox TV, but for broadcasting and cable casting in general, not just for guys with hard to spell ethnic names in general…which leads us to what appeared on the screen courtesy computer generated graphics (CG) – “Rory Marcus”!!!

In less than a minute, down goes the “Marcus” – up comes the “Roary Marcus” (just kidding about that), they actually got it right the second time, “Rory Markas.” That’s what you get for putting interns on the CG, Fox!

P.S. Looking at the photo, was Rory the long lost twin of fellow Fox-er Glenn Beck?

Fox L.A. Kills Chris Brown or at least attempts to

February 10, 2009

While on the scene of the pending suicide of slow Bentley-driving girlfriend-beating shades-wearing paparazzi-subject Mustafa Mustafa , LA’s FOX11 reporter Susan Hirasuna breathlessly reported “this has not been confirmed” but a paparazzi told her inside the car was Grammy-skipping Rhianna-beating/biting defendant rapper Chris Brown, to which an anchor suggested a flaw in her report in that he was suposedly in Vegas.

Hirasuna had just come off the high of her own reporter chase – “I almost uttered an explexitive” when another TV van almost hit a paparazzi vehicle – “the humanity of it all” –  not to mention the potential FCC sanctions really did a yoeman’s job of reporting, though yoemen haven’t been in vogue for centuries.

Another notable comment was about press badges, in which Hirasuna observed that “every Manny Moe & Jack” in news reporting are trying to get these LAPD goodies.

Don’t forget DJ Khaled (who?) who issued a statement that he is in Florida and cannot be Mustafa Mustafa, neither can Manny Moe or Jack.khaled
