Phone Bone


Rachel Buchman, 25-year-old reporter for Philadelphia's WHYY public radio station, made a poison phone call to the offices of, and, like any good reporter, left her work phone number as a callback. After calling her back, Chris Carmouche, executive director for Laptoplobbylist (a name that sounds somehow pornographic to my ear) sent a transcript and an MP3 of her message to his 150,000-strong email list, leading to Buchman's resignation. Whole story (reg. req.) here. Since audio is always the payoff in tales like this one, here is Buchman's message. As Leonard Nimoy sang in another famous recorded mistake, Highly Illogical! Thanks to Gary Gunnels for the tip.
