This Richard Quest asshole on CNN!
Who in the fuck is this bitch?!? The chop-jawed Brit who is suddenly omnipresent in their PLANE! PLANE! PLANE! coverage?
He's physically irritating to watch, completely obnoxious (as most Brits on US news shows go), desperate to suck up air time. He's on at 5:30 in the morning on through Anderson Cooper and perhaps later.
I'm not watching CNN all day but every fucking time I tune in, there this asshole is.
WHO the fuck is he? And while I'm at it, are there as many Americans on British news programs as there are Brits on US shows??

His arrest in Central Park a few years ago made news at the time. Considering that some people are fired for minor transgressions, I'm surprised he's been able to rehabilitate his image.

Damn R2 are you kidding me? I had no idea. Not only with drugs, but with a rope around his cock?!
This motherfucker is STILL in the country while so many good Mexican people are having to cross the boarder at night, and at gunpoint many times?
Again, HOW AND WHY do so many Brits come and go so freely when Americans are all but forbidden from working in the U.K. and we resort to building walls to keep hard working Mexicans away.
That's fucked up.

R6, according to R2's link, I'd say he likely is.. Speed and likely a lot more. Tina maybe? Apparently he's gay with a drug problem. What is it about so many gay journalists? Can they just not handle it?

That bust article is something. No one knows anything about the "rope configuration." HAHAHA.

Maybe that's why I haven't seen him.. He was banished after his sex-in-the-park drug bust and they dug him out for the plane hysteria, thinking his annoyance and arrest history would be overlooked due to all the plane harping.
He's a first degree asshole. Watch him for a few moments if you haven't. He's obnoxiously confrontation, like an idiot who knows nothing but is confident on one subject and takes it to the extremes. He's been nasty and rude to other guests on various shows and I still have no idea what his credentials are to be all but tag lined as an expert on plane crashes.
CNN has really destroyed it's cred with this whole mess.

Word, R12. MProps to the Colonel for keeping his mouth shut and not (justifiably) telling Richard to shut the fuck up. Don Lemon seems to have zero patience for him, since he told the loud-mouthed prick to just answer the question and not veer off on a tangent.
I feel sorry for David Soucie and that Gallo gentleman for having to endure that misery in person.

I remember shortly after Piers Morgan was hired he said "Americans love British accents." I doubt that was ever true, and it certainly isn't now. I don't know which is more grating, "BBC English" or "Channel 4" English. The plane plane plane thing is all the more excruciating because of them. I used to love "Aussie," but that's fading fast now.

I can honestly say I'm a Brit and I've never heard of this bloke or seen him on TV programmes here. Ask anyone here who he is and they'd look at you blankly. I feel like I should apologise for inflicting him on you.

IIRC, CNN originally hired this pathetic queen to cover all matters related to the British monarchy, based no doubt on his physical resemblance to a badly-drawn cartoon caricature.
|by Anonymous||reply 17||04/10/2014|
No, there are very very few Americans on British shows. The only one I remember is a showbiz correspondent who appeared on a morning magazine show called This Morning. Occasionally there is a one off interview, but Americans are certainly not a regular fixture. And R15, you know nothing about British TV.

I used to watch him and think he was full of himself but capable in his role. Something's changed. I used to think it was drugs. Don't really know but now he CREEPS ME OUT.

He's got what appears to be facial wasting. I wonder if he's sick.
Drugs and sex in the park would certainly put him in the high risk category.
Either way, this guys is a fucking irritant and I'm baffled as to how and why he's on air so often. It's as though CNN is TRYING to destroy what's left of the remaining viewership.

I haven't watched the main CNN channel for a month now because he's on all the time. I hate his voice and his face and his personality.
Why hollyweird and news channels keep shoving Brits down our throats is beyond comprehension. I'm not anti-Brit but we don't need them on every fucking news show or in every fucking movie.
Whoever is in charge at CNN really needs to reevaluate his decision making. Richard Quest and Piers Morgan (thank goodness he's leaving) were 2 of the WORST choices EVER.

I hate his voice. I turn the channel when he comes on. I prefer CNN international.

Quest: 'Anderson, I sucked off both the pilot and copilot doing my recent story on Malaysian Air, before this disappearance. They kept me naked in the cockpit for the whole 8 hour flight. A butt plug with a dog tail on it was firmly in my rectum, and a cock ring with a dog leash kept me near the center control console at all times. There WERE drugs involved, but only I did them. Anderson, I can assure you that these men did not hijack that aircraft!'

Someone needs to contact their contacts in Immigration and see what's up with his status. A drug user with an arrest user WORKING in the States? He needs to be back home addressing his issues.

I laughed out loud when I read this:"with some drugs in his pocket, a rope around his neck that was tied to his genitals, and a sex toy in his boot, law-enforcement sources said." Who the fuck keeps a sex toy in their boot? I know it means trunk in British English but in the US it could be seen as stuffing a butt plug in his boots! Let's not forget a rope tied to his penis connected to his neck!? In a park no less. If it was in a gay club maybe it would have happened but in Central Park? There are still people doing that these days? What an old queen he is....

no r10 he's been back for some time, prior to the plane incident.
CNN sent him off to rehab and allowed him to return, as they should do.He's been given another chance.
That said, he's insufferable.
|by Anonymous||reply 28||04/11/2014|
He is completely unknown in the UK - probably due to his onscreen talents.
I saw him once on CNN on cable. I was agog at his CONstant overEMPHasisING of random SYLLables and RAISing his VOICE as if it embued his wretched delivery with some import.
He is the presenting equivalent of the overdramatic screechy violins in a cheap and forgotten TV thriller.

That's not accurate. I've seen him many times on CNN in the UK.

R29, I agree completely. I think before he was caught, he covered news related to the business traveler. After his arrest, I just couldn't stand him anymore and that mental image of him in central park just comes to mind whenever he appears, I have to switch channel.

The problem with Richard Quest is not simply that his voice terribly raspy. That in itself is not his fault. And one could feelcompassion for him in that regard, esp since he seems to be quite talented and positive-minded.
But what I find irriating is the impression he radiates that he does not even TRY to reduce the grating assault on our sense, but often seems to EMPAHSIZE it. It is THAt that I find nauseataing !Why dont people in the CNN tell him that ?!

I can't watch CNN anymore. They have more irritating commercials than actual content and they have crazy shrill commentators. Not just Richard, but those awful panels with 6 people and they are screeching over each other and everyone has wide eyes and looks like they are on speed.

Why aren't they using Mikes O'Brien for this? He's much more low key and easy to listen to hour after hour. Also, he's a pilot and actually has some background, unlike Quest who is just a phony.

Can't tell if he is more calm because he is doing his work indoors/on set in a group interview setting (as opposed to reporting from outdoors when he usually starts foaming at the mouth and screaming every other word).
Either that or someone has finally made him realize that his over-the-top dramatics are beyond annoying and cringe worthy. I've been watching CNN this past week for updates on the Germanwings crash and really noticed that he's much more 'normal' in his interactions. New meds?
|by Anonymous||reply 55||03/31/2015|
Obviously his job last night was to 'disagree' with Miles O'Brian. Or either he can't stand the competition of another expert. He didn't bother me until I saw this. And Miles was more professional - he didn't take the bait.
