How Journos Handle Delicate Underwear Verbiage

Today we take a penetrating look at how journalists (and comedian Jon Stewart) tackle the terrain of describing a photograph that may or may not be Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s (D-N.Y.) suspicious package. Cox Radio’s Jamie Dupree gets the creativity award for this one, and not only because of the name of his employer.

Cox Radio Capitol Hill Reporter Jamie Dupree: “their own family jewels (tucked safely in some gray underwear)”

Slate‘s Josh Voorhees: “a man’s underwear-clad crotch”

WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza: “At issue is an image posted to Weiner’s Twitter account that depicted a man’s underwear-clad groin.”

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer: “Underpants.”

The Hill‘s Bernie Becker: “a sexually suggestive picture”

NYP: “crotch shot”

TWT‘s Kerry Picket: “lewd photo”

NY Daily NewsCeleste Katz: “the bulging-briefs photo”

Politico’s Scott Wong and Ben Smith: “the close-up photo of a man’s crotch”

Roll Call‘s John Stanton: “a photograph of underwear-clad male genitalia”

NYT‘s Raymond Hernandez: “photo sent from his Twitter account that shows a man in his underpants from the waist down.”

TWT‘s David Etheridge: “the tightly cropped shot of a man’s crotch clad in gray underwear.”

FNC’s Bret Baier: “Is there a picture out there of you in your drawers that you are worried about?”

Comedy Central’s Stewart: “Junk shot.”
