OK, he didn't seem like the brightest bulb but he's no McCain Lady or Sarah Palin either.
Assholes or Accurate... news anchors mock Ryan Lochte

He was funny, cute. Why not laugh?

I guess I'm in the minority, but I think they owe him an apology.
|by Anonymous||reply 2||04/19/2013|
They do, R2.
I think the schtick of this guy is to laugh at him.

It was mean and rude. I agree with the commenter over at Gawker who said it was like kicking a golder retriever.

R2= Ryan Lochte
Ryan, would you please go to the other Ryan Lochte thread and answer questions about your cock.
|by Anonymous||reply 5||04/19/2013|
R5 R2 was not Ryan. Everyone knows Ryan is too dumb to even know they were making fun of him.

It's not THAT big of a deal. Being laughed at my idiot news anchors isn't exactly the pinnacle of victimization. But, yes, they were rude.
They were both sort of insufferable. Not great interviewers, not funny. The old queen was, well, very clearly old and queeny and bitchy in an old queen sort of way.
Sure, it would be nice to apologize. But, it's not a huge deal if they don't.

He's nice to look at. Unfortunately, that all goes downhill when he opens his mouth to talk.

Just as we later found out Jessica Simpson's infamous idiocy ("It's called a 'platymapus'") on "The Newlyweds" was mostly an act to create buzz, I would not be at all surprised to find on Lochte is putting on a bit of an act.

I am in Philly, and these two anchors do this to many guests....remember when they did it to the kardashian sisters after they were interviewed? That clip went viral.

It's unprofessional. While I would agree that it was a laughable event, they should have waited until they were off air...

Well, you can't swim with your mouth open. Nobody's putting in the pool to share his big ideas. It was rude of them to laugh. And inappropriate considering they're just local anchors. With a suit and a reliable teleprompter, Ryan Lochte could do that job.
|by Anonymous||reply 18||04/20/2013|
He does seem especially stupid. I think the anchors are hilarious. They couldn't help it.
Unprofessional, yes. They should be in trouble with their bosses. But I doubt they are with their viewers.

No respect is due to reality show idiots like the Kardashian sisters and this boob, handsome though he may be.

Fuck off with the politics, you weirdo American. Anderson Cooper could giggle on CNN about this and you would approve. Ridiculist.
We are discussing Ryan Lochte's stupidity and people laughing at him.
I am not usually even a mean guy, but fuck is he dumb. Why not laugh. Those anchors are cute about it.

Many of these second and third tier media market personalities get off on making fun of their national guests. It's been happening on radio for years. It's unprofessional, but they don't care because they aren't going anywhere and it brings attention.

Right, R14. Not only is Lochte a cagy genius, but we all have discovered how bright Ms. Simpson actually is since her put-on. Uh-huh.

The first explanation of why he matters is "he's not like any other Olympian"... because ... "I like to hang out with my friends, go dancing, have fun..."
I would have laughed right there.

My thoughts exactly, R21.
Let's stop acting like these idiotic reality types desperate for fame deserve anything more than mockery. Many of us are sick of seeing them on television.

Oh don't get your panties in a twist R33. He's probably a flaming homosexual, and we need more of these on television.

Lochte "playing" dumb again on Letterman.
Dave - "What is your best stroke."
Ryan - "I don't know."
Dave - "Is there someone we could call?"
He also states that he is doing his reality show to increase swimming awareness.
8 1/2 minutes of mental torture.

Ryan says that he's "different than other Olympic athletes"...and then he proceeds to say that he likes to hangout with his friends, play basketball, skateboard, etc.
How is this different than any other dumb jock?
The news anchors were certainly fine to laugh at him. Reality show morons deserve to be laughed at and insulted at every chance. Enough with these reality show jerks who shouldn't even have a forum to be famous in the first place.
|by Anonymous||reply 37||04/22/2013|
He looks cute in pictures but on the show he wasn't even all that hot. Even with his mouth shut.
I hope he's extremely good in bed or generous with his money. Otherwise, he has very little to offer...
