Christopher Dorner Standoff

Newscast PRANKED

By Howard Stern Fan

2/12/2013 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

021213_cbs_stern_prank_launch
It was only a matter of time ... but a Howard Stern fan managed to infiltrate the Christopher Dorner news coverage by posing as an expert ... and PRANKED a Los Angeles TV station live on the air.

The caller got through to KCBS-TV moments ago claiming to be a State Fish and Game ranger named Mike Taugher ... and he was SUPPOSED to recap the events leading up to the shootout.

It started out pretty believable ... but when the caller name-dropped Ronnie The Limo Driver (a Stern regular) it was pretty clear CBS has just been hoaxed.

... well, obvious to everyone but the anchor ... who continued engaging the caller until he told her it was a joke and called her a "dumbass."

This should tell you the IQ of a typical Howard Stern fan. "20".

Ugly troll Howard Stern and his crew of morons never aged past 14. POS describes all of them. Would have been even funnier if they could have gotten someone killed, huh, Howard?

"Senator, I KNEW Ronnie-the-limo-driver."


"And you are NO Ronnie-the-limo-driver."


Have missed Howard since the move to Satellite.

How disgusting that in a time of crises such as this that some spineless parasite would stoop such a level. People have died, families have been torn apart and you think this is the time for jokes? I have one thing to say to you....THAT WAS F'ING HILARIOUS & A HEARTY GFY, TO THOSE THAT THOUGHT I WAS SERIOUS AT THE START OF THIS. You are just as gullible as the news anchor.

FAH FAH FOOEY!

Wow.

Not cool. Not cool at all. Some 30-something still trying to over-compensate for having a small weener.

I just called into the station and told them I was Batman, watch today's news to see the replay of what they are calling the surprise call of the century.

I'm now just waiting for Harvey to have me call in to TMZ Live for an EXCLUSIVE live phone interview, to become the new call of the century.

Until then...

I have to clarify that it is California Fish and "Wildlife" at the STATE level, U.S. Fish and Wildlife at the Federal level and there is no Fish and Game Department except at Walmart still.

Illustrates how dumb some newscasters are. They sit there and read copy. Unfortunately most people are so naive that they believe everything they hear or read in the news must be true since it is on television or in print. All the stations are trying to scoop the others. Journalistic integrity is kaput.

I didn't see the name of the news reporter in the clip. Anyone know who this genius is at CBS?
