Microphone or camera in front of you? Assume it is on and recording. That includes your phone.

You'd think a MEDIA GUY would be on top of this. -this would be a link to the time a CBC reporter on camera they thought was off referred to someone "She's got tits that can stop a bus." if I could find it.

I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers, Toobin told Motherboard.
Wow, surprised the co-workers even made it into his apology! I apologize to my local liquor store, to my second hamster Snowball, to the entire roster of the Double-A Baseball team the Drillers... also to my co-workers, I guess.

It's been a minute since I last complained about this, so it's time to repeat myself. Snopes is a fucking scourge, and Google is complicit in including their clickbait headlines in their "Fact Check" section.

Screenshot from 2020-11-21 17-30-42.png

They've got not one but two of those clickbait headlines that phrase the fake news stories as questions rather than addressing them directly. They are intentionally acting as a vector for dangerous lies just to boost their revenue.
