One anchor's views on Kellyanne Conway's "alternative facts" statement? Bull----.
Mike Jerrick, co-host of Fox29's "Good Day Philadelphia" seems to have accidentally blurted out the comment during a live show Monday morning.
The blunder happened while Jerrick, co-anchor Alex Holley and two guests were discussing how President Donald Trump's administration handled claims that the size of his inauguration crowd was smaller than normal.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that the crowd was the “largest audience to ever witness an inauguration," while side-by-side photos of the crowds attending former President Barack Obama's event in 2009 appear to tell a different story.
"Good Day" aired a clip of senior adviser Conway, who grew up in Atco, New Jersey, on NBC's "Meet the Press," where she called Spicer's assertions "alternative facts" when pressed by host Chuck Todd about why he would "utter a complete falsehood."
The guests on the Philadelphia morning show said, "she's good," before Jerrick blurts out, "She's good at bull----!"
Holley then quickly retorts, "We're sorry about that."
"I apologize for that," Jerrick said.
Jerrick co-hosted 'Good Day' from 1999 to 2002 and rejoined the team in 2009, according to the new station's website.
Claudia Russo, a spokesperson for Fox29, said that the matter has been addressed though declined to comment further.
"This is not in line with Fox Television Stations' guidelines and the matter has been addressed," she said.
