Outrage: ABC Interrupted Kate Upton on 'Live with Kelly and Michael' with Breaking News

By Robert Paul Reyes

ABC interrupted " Live with Kelly and Michael" with breaking news that the United States had just launched airstrikes in Iraq against ISIS, aka The Islamic State, aka The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, aka ISIL.


We should bomb those Islamic devils to Kingdom Come just for changing their name so frequently.

During the show`s opening monologue, while Michael Strahan was telling a story about guest host Kate Upton in a robe, ABC rudely and aprutply cut into the breaking news.

Let me digress by posing the question that all of America is wondering: What qualifies ex-jock Strahan to co-host the morning talk show? I have a sneaking suspicion that he was awarded the gig simply because he`s a semi-articulate black celeb.

As for his co-host, Kelly Ripa, she`s getting a little bit long in the tooth, and she should be replaced permanently by the gorgeous Kate Upton.

But getting back to the issue at hand, it was simply inexcusable for ABC to interrupt the morning gabfest for breaking news. Folks who care about what`s going on in the United States and the world were watching Fox News, MSNBC or CNN.

Needless to say, ABC was flooded with angry calls and vitriolic emails. Let`s hope ABC has learned an important lesson: Don`t interrupt celeb-oriented programs with breaking news about what`s going on in the real world.
