    New York – Her “loving” husband emerged pretty well, but her “control freak” of a sister-in-law is probably less amused, after a CNN presenter left her microphone on while chatting to a colleague in the toilets.

    Viewers who tuned into Tuesday’s edition of Live From… to watch President George Bush in New Orleans were instead treated to the president competing for attention with anchor Kyra Phillips giving a lavatory low down on her family.

    “My husband is handsome and he is genuinely a loving, you know, no ego… you know what I’m saying,” Phillips told an unidentified confidante in a bathroom back-and-forth transmitted live to the nation for over a minute.

    When her powder room pal turned to talk of her latest love interest and her mother’s approval ratings, Phillips confided – or so she thought – that her brother was the one she needed to look out for.

    “He’s married, three kids, but his wife is just a control freak,” she said.

    A CNN official eventually interrupted the bathroom banter.

    The network said in a statement it had experienced “audio difficulties” and apologised to viewers… and the upstaged president.

    I sure wish I could’ve saw that. It sounds really funny. I’m not sure what channel it was on over here in Canada. How embarrassing :biggrin:

    Incredibly bad thing to happen at cnn .

    It is just so unprofessional to leave their mics switched on. Perhaps they should have the toilet block shielded in future .
