Can’t say ‘Qantas?’ More great media gaffes

A TV host's colourful rendition of the word "Qantas" earned laughs this week. Crikey intern Sarah Duggan revists some other great media stuff-ups.

Crikey, inspired by TV host Carrie Bickmore’s rather unfortunate rendering of the word “Qantas” this week, has decided to compile some of the most memorable media gaffes we can remember. So sit back and enjoy these moments when journalists and hosts reveal they are, indeed, only human.

But was it even a mistake? Let the online conspiracies begin!

    Oh dear, always a sign of boredom or sheer frustration that there is nothing better to discuss. How about some cat & dog youtubes (benny hill theme song musak) …or perhaps tell some lurid Christopher Pine jokes?

    Arrogant arsehole…

    Clearly a sign of YOUR boredom Gungaroo, obviously you can’t find anything else to comment on or about. maybe you’d find more fun out of abusing Charlotte Dawson. Are you a twitter troll or crikey creep?

    To quote my fav newsreader gaffe from Mr Ron Burgundy himself…Go f*ck yourself San Diego.

    If you’re wanting something more stimulating. possibly you could tell me your thoughts on Ugandan politics?

    Great light-hearted read, Sarah. Very amusing.
    I don’t know what Gungaroo is trolling about… perhaps he thought he was in the politics section.
