Gay Anchor Sacked For Being Complete and Utter Fuck Up

New York ABC affiliate newsman Steve Bartelstein‘s about to have a lot of time on his hands. Our media-obsessed sibs over at Jossip report that the gay anchor of Eyewitness News this Morning and Eyewitness News at Noon has been sacked. We’ll let them do the talking:

[Bartelstein] has been clashing with brass for some time now, we’re told, but “the last straw” was when he slept through a Good Morning America insert on Friday. GMA was covering the Bronx fire (that killed 10 people) and Steve was expected to chime in during the commercial break to plug WABC’s coverage. But he was a no show, and the network was forced to air two minutes of weather and traffic. Producers were pissed.

Steve has a history of not showing up for work and, allegedly, a raging crystal meth addiction.

Yow! That’s no good. Especially because Bartelstein’s the only reason we watched ABC. Guess it’s just FOX 5 for us – sure, they bend their coverage to Rupert Murdoch‘s political will, but it’s like New York Post in television form! Plus, we j’adore the sexually ambiguous Arnold Diaz’s “Shame, Shame, Shame” segment. Pure brilliance…
