Howard Stern Fan Pranks MSNBC Host Krystal Ball During Malaysian Plane Crash Coverage
Youtube ^ | 7/17/14

Posted on 07/17/2014 7:51:18 PM PDT by Justaham

MSNBC's Krystal Ball was the victim of a phone prank by a Howard Stern fan pretending to be a member of the U.S. military in Ukraine who witnessed the Malaysian Airlines flight 117 crash.

"Well, I was looking out the window and I saw a projectile flying in the sky and it would appear the plane was shot down by a blast of wind from Howard Stern's ass," the man said.

"So it would appear the plane was shot down, can you tell us anything more from your military training of sort of missile system that may have been coming from?" Ball asked.

"Well, you're a dumbass aren't you?" the caller replied.

After an awkward pause, MSNBC went to a commercial break. Ball explained what happened when she returned to the air, "We thought we had an eyewitness on the scene. That individual was not actually an eyewitness."

Hilarious!

Ironic that somebody named Krystal Ball didn't see that coming.

Howard may be flatulent but he’s no killer.

As I recall there was a particular fan of Stern who specialized in such prank calls. I think he called himself Captain Janks.

The best is when Larry King was interviewing Prince Charles and this guy called up in a proper English accent, “Hello Prince Charles, I am a huge fan and I must say I am an Earl and an OBE, which makes me an Earlobe..”

I remember when a HS fan punked a newsie live on the air on the night Princess Diana died. Passed himself off very professionally, right up to the point that he said they were speeding trough the tunnel “to get to a video store before they closed so they could get a copy of Howard Stern’s ‘Private Parts’”.

I do not remember the network it happened on.

This thread got pulled earlier ... (?)

I never liked Howard Stern, but I love it when these callers get through! Even HE was shocked @ how dumb she is.

Krystal is the genius who read Orwell’s ANIMAL FARM and thought it was an indictment of capitalism.

And she’s on the network that calls Sarah Palin an airhead....

I don’t like Howard Stern at all, but that episode from 1994 ought to be remembered as one of the greatest, most entertaining moments in the history of television news. LMAO.

That’s right, but the 1994 incident linked above didn’t involve “Captain Janks.” It was a guy who later called himself “Maury from Brooklyn” who was all pissed off about one of the networks interrupting the coverage of the NBA Finals to cover the OJ story ... so he began calling all of the various networks with this prank until he found one that put him on the air. LOL!!

Remember that Howard Stern himself was fired from his job at a radio station after an on-air episode in the aftermath of the Air Florida plane crash in the Potomac River back in 1982. He called up an Air Florida reservation line and asked if he could purchase a one-way ticket from National Airport to the 14th Street Bridge in Washington, D.C. (the plane had crashed into the bridge before landing in the river).

Dan Rather pranked by caller during Columbia disaster:

I gotta give Rather credit for delivering a classic line after he realized that it was a prank:

"It is true; I'm an idiot -- but that's beside the point."

LMAO.

“WOW nothing gets passed Krystal Ball now does it LOL..”

MSNBC just mimics a ‘news’ organization as our Administration mimics the American interests - rank, incompetent amateurs who will never recognize their failings as they see the world through rose-colored glasses...the tragic difference for America is that MSNBC just exists to provide periodic episodes of humor (I can’t believe they actually make money there given the poor ratings), but our Administration is actively engaged in destroying American greatness...

The sad thing is that MSNBC is such a train wreck that this doesn’t even embarrass them. Plus, O’Reilly defended Krystal Ball, proving once again that he’s a RAT at heart.

What was even better was, on the Monday show after the OJ call (happened on a Friday night), Stern and the gang played the call but would stop it periodically to make comments about Jennings being duped. I think it was even funnier than the call itself. Wish I could find that audio, but haven't been able to up to this point.
