If there was a One Shining Moment for news anchors dropping Freudian slips, this would certainly make it into the highlight montage. After Connecticut’s victory over Kentucky in the National Championship Game, Fox News anchor Heather Childers said the team were the “2014 NAACP National Champs!”
Isn’t it funny how you just add one letter and EVERYTHING CHANGES. The NAACP is of course the “National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.” The NCAA is the “National Collegiate Athletic Association.” Sliiiiight difference.
A Fox News host making an unfortunate Freudian slip involving the NAACP is probably the most cable news thing ever. I wonder what she and Fox News would have done had Wisconsin won the tournament, though.
