Typically when there is nudity on the TV, it is either late at night on Cinemax or during some sort of live event (looking at you Janet Jackson). This morning however, a wee bit of nudity somehow made it onto MSNBC has part of what looked to be a pre-taped clip package.
Anchor Richard Lui was speaking to Mara Schiavocampo live from Zuccotti Park in Manhattan, and during the conversation the network ran a series of edited clips from the “Occupy Wall Street” protests. Somehow some clearly topless ladies made it into the clip reel, and were on screen for a good five seconds or so before a different video was shown (about 1:10 into the clip) Update: MSNBC has removed the video in question and replaced it with another one, but we have a screengrab, after the jump.
Meanwhile, on New York’s local Fox station , there was some cursing as anti-’Occupy’ folks got into a heated argument with some ‘Occupiers’ (via Mediaite):
So far today, the cable news channels have been going in and out of coverage of the “Occupy” protests, which are expected to continue throughout the day.
