Rob Morrison Seems Frustrated

This is merely a guess, but we think Rob Morrison — the former CBS anchor who resigned following his arrest for allegedly choking his wife — is a bit frustrated. We’re picking up on this vibe thanks to his comments to the Darien Times, his local newspaper.

Morrison called the paper because he was upset about a story it published on his situation. Below is what Morrison said to the Darien Times, followed by a brief — not so frustrated — deciphering.

“Your sources suck in the Stamford Court, and the Darien Times — I know this is big time for ya, okay, but your sources suck, brother.” 

Less Frustrated Version:  “I regret to inform you that your sources lack validity, adult whom I have no relation to.”

“[The Darien Times gets its information from] whatever is f*cking fed to you on some press release or some form.”

Less Frustrated Version: The Darien Times staffers — oddly enough — choose to consume press releases or any other document they come across.”

“Good for you, bro.”

Less Frustrated Version: “I am pleased with you, adult whom I have no relation to.”

“The clerk is your source? [The state’s attorney] you f*cking idiot. F*ck the clerk.”

Less Frustrated Version: “The clerk isn’t as good a source as the state’s attorney. Please perform sexual intercourse with the clerk.”
