"Fox News’ Brit Hume on Tuesday made a big mistake when he shared a screenshot from his iPad without first closing all the other browser tabs he had opened."

Raw Story has the report on why the name Brit Hume is trending on Twitter this morning along with the phrase "sexy vinyl vixen."

Just because they are on TV doesn't mean they are smart.

Nonapod said...

That's pretty funny. Somehow stodgy old Brit Hume being into sexy vinyl vixen's humanizes him a bit.

$hit happens

Limited blogger said...

I bet Brit and Chris Matthews are friends

Achilles said...

Was it Pornhub: sexy vinyl vixen?

narciso said...

remember porn hub marshall, or eichenwald's particular fixation, of course his career as a fantasist precedes him,

Francisco D said...

Britt Hume was the best news anchor in the business. Since he retired, I never watch TV news. Coincidence?

It is funny, but why should he be embarrassed?

Born: June 22, 1943 (age 76 years), Washington, D.C.

Temujin said...

Yes...even old guys who know a ton about politics like it their own way. Give the guy a break. He's not dead. Though he needs to be much smarter about showing off his phone.

rehajm said...

Which browser is that? The tabs look fake...

Ken B said...

Not this debate again. CDs are better than vinyl.

Shouting Thomas said...

There's nothing quite as perplexing as another person's kinks, if you don't share them.

Wince said...

Damn autocorrect, Britt actually typed...

"Sexy Vinyl Nixon"

MAJMike said...

"Who knows what evil lurks in the minds of men? Sexy Vinyl Vixen knows!!"

Heh.

rehajm said...

Mother's Day isn't until May but he's on top of things...

Nonapod said...

Wince said...Damn autocorrect, Britt actually typed...

"Sexy Vinyl Nixon"


Damn you for for putting that image in my head.

Drago said...

Wince: "Damn autocorrect, Britt actually typed..."Sexy Vinyl Nixon"'

Thread winner. Shut it down...unless Laslo has something to add.

Lucid-Ideas said...

I can't remember which psych said it, but he said that based on his practice he noticed an obscene number of rich or powerful guys (guys at the top of their game) had a dominatrix fetish/kink.

He posited that this was because you often fetishize the thing you're opposite from or don't possess. Some of these dudes lord it over others so often they begin to get off on the idea of it being lorded over them or something.

Either way, yeesh.

Xmas said...

I mean, it could have been much, much, much worse. Vinyl girls, like Darenzia, are usually just wearing vinyl corsets, superhigh heels and other bits of vinyl clothing in otherwise perfunctory pornographic poses.

Someone needs to teach this man about Incognito mode though. There is no reason to be looking at sexy girls in the same browser context as your financial accounts.

rhhardin said...

The DVD has pretty much taken over the vinyl trade.

mockturtle said...

Hilarious.

tim in vermont said...

"but he said that based on his practice he noticed an obscene number of rich or powerful guys”

If he can’t point to replicated studies, I call bullshit. It’s so easy to project your prejudices when babbling about psychology. It’s the main reason it’s mostly a pseudoscience. Little better than astrology. But I bet if, instead of asking a witch doctor... err, I mean psychologist, you asked the girls themselves, you might get a better answer.

tim in vermont said...

Rich guys can afford their rates though.

Char Char Binks said...

But not leather vixens, that's cruel.

Ignorance is Bliss said...

I make a habit it of always putting my pants back on before taking screenshots. Not because anything about the screenshot would show me pantsless, but because that same routine reminds me to close all extraneous tabs.

If Brit had remembered to put his pants back on, this likely would not have happened.

tim in vermont said...

"If Brit had remembered to put his pants back on, this likely would not have happened.”

No need! There are endless jokes about news presenters not wearing pants, pick one.

Amadeus 48 said...

Tentacle porn? What tentacle porn?

tim in vermont said...

""but he said that based on his practice...”

It’s almost like they were presenting him with clues, which he repurposed into a taunt... Naah!

tim in vermont said...

Where would a vinyl fetish come from? Did his parents try to prevent his birth and he had the traumatic experience of escaping suffocating grasp of the condom?

Bob Boyd said...

Mother's Day is coming up...

Rory said...

5:30 in the morning.

CJinPA said...

It's funny to watch the cesspool that is Twitter pretend to be...upset?...sickened?...outraged?....they're not sure...over this.

FYI Brit cropped the image to remove the tabs and reposted it. Might as well be defiant.

Unknown said...

Queen of the damned in black rubber..

Bay Area Guy said...

"Sexy vinyl vixen" sounds like my favorite DJ on KFOG in the 80s.

tim in vermont said...

"Mother's Day is coming up...”

Mommy issues most likely. Maybe the vinyl is about “you can look but can’t touch” exquisite torture of being surrounded by beautiful women working at a TV outlet that you can’t touch without risking your extremely highly paid job. After a while the pain transmorgifies into pleasure.

Michael K said...

I'd look to see what the site is about but it has probably been crashed already.

Paul Snively said...

A man being interested in overtly sexy women isn't news.

Darcy said...

Embarrassing for him, but I don't care what Brit browses. It's none of our business.

Bill Peschel said...

Ted Baxter would never have done this.

FullMoon said...

Rookie mistake.

(Probably followed an Amazon link on Instapundit...)

Bill Peschel said...

"A man being interested in overtly sexy women isn't news."

No, but a man looking a p0rn on company time and who can't hide his proclivities is.

MikeR said...

"No, but a man looking a p0rn on company time and who can't hide his proclivities is." Uh, no, still not. No one should care except his wife, and her not too much.

Gusty Winds said...

Cool. I prefer sexy vinyl Blitzens myself.

Bob Boyd said...

Maybe he was buying a little something special for himself.
Maybe he was feeling a little vinyl-goddessey this morning...not that there's anything wrong with that.

Gusty Winds said...

I follow Jenna Jameson on Twitter. She's good a busting liberal balls.

bagoh20 said...

I don't know what "sexy vinyl vixens" are, but they are going to do good business today.

I assume if we saw the Althouse screen there would be something about "hot gardeners in shorts."

Drago said...

Bill Peschel: "No, but a man looking a p0rn on company time and who can't hide his proclivities is."

None of us know the precise nature and terms of Britt's contract.

I believe he spends the bulk of his time in Florida and acts as a contributor only. He is not in the office with supervisory/managerial oversight.

I could be wrong.

Drago said...

Amadeus 48: "Tentacle porn? What tentacle porn?"

That pertains to another of LLR-lefty Chuck's far left media heroes: Kurt Eichenwald.

Left Bank of the Charles said...

I'll bet it wasn't Brit Hume's iPad, handed to him by someone in the studio. If it was a union stage hand who is not really into Brit's politics, well played.

Unknown said...

Now when I google sexy vinyl vixen I get Brit Hume.

Boing Boing thinks it's this Yandy page

Oh that damn Yandy.

This girl has been internet stalking me for months. Months! I clicked on you once back in November. Maybe a couple of times. But I'm not giving you any money, okay? You damn leather bunny stalker. I can't show my computer to anybody.

Mattman26 said...

So really and truly, I don't do porn but I don't judge others (much). (Although my wife refers to it as "porning" when I'm on sites like this here one.)

And Brit? I guess I wouldn't have guessed it. (Vinyl? Do I even want to know?)

Still it makes my heart hurt to watch someone make a goof like this.

purplepenquin said...

They notice. They appreciate it.

I took one for the team and the first returned result was Brit Hume!! Not kidding... 🤣

JML said...

I'm at work, Unknown. Quit tempting me! Between not be able to click on your links and not being able to touch my face, I'm going nuts. And DON'T suggest I touch myself somewhere else to make up for all of this. I don't need another ER complaint...

Yancey Ward said...

Well, that could have been much, much worse, and I speak from experience as probably does every guy on this thread.

mockturtle said...

I mean, it could have been much, much, much worse.

Yes, it could have been Grindr.

Ann Althouse said...

I have never gone to a porn site. Not once. Not in the entire time there has been a "world wide web."

Bob Boyd said...

By the way, Meade, the potato goes in the front.

madAsHell said...

This has a certain self-destructive behavior feel to it. It might be a cry for help.

madAsHell said...

Good!! More porn for me!!

mockturtle said...

I have never gone to a porn site. Not once. Not in the entire time there has been a "world wide web."

Nor I, not even out of curiosity because I'd be afraid of getting all kinds of creepy stuff in my email. Even so, for a long time I kept getting emails about how to enlarge my [nonexistent] penis.

Yancey Ward said...

Not even by "accident"?

Fernandistein said...

I have never gone to a porn site.

The NYeT is porn: no artistic or intellectual value.

Drago said...

Althouse: "I have never gone to a porn site. Not once. Not in the entire time there has been a "world wide web."

1990's "porn" or 2020 porn?

Because Victoria's Secret magazines were quite the rage on the carriers in the 1990's.

Anthony said...

My 37-year old coworker put her laptop up for a class to display on the room monitors and up popped a picture of herself in a really hot dress for her date last weekend. It wasn't lewd or anything, but embarrassing.

She had actually left the room at the time, and some nice young man went up and clocked it closed before she got back. Standup guy.

Unknown said...

Althouse: "I have never gone to a porn site. Not once. Not in the entire time there has been a "world wide web.."

Potato, pototo..

Bob Boyd said...

The vinyl halter set won't totally protect you from Corona virus, but it's better than nothing.

wendybar said...

AND??? Who cares?. Is he hurting anybody?

William said...

I recognize that many here do not have the time or inclination to search through the many porn sites available on the internet. Still if you wish to be knowledgeable of the main currents in the American libido, it pays to make the effort. It does seem that incest is becoming a thing. So far as I can remember, I have never been sexually attracted to my sister or mother, and I try to be as degenerate as the next guy. (Well, maybe when I was three years old, I had a thing for my mother, but I outgrew it.) Anyway, in porn nowadays, people are always shagging their moms and sisters. In pornworld, incest is no longer an inhibition. Rather the opposite. Maybe there's a downside to all these blended families.....I bring this to your attention, because it might be a bellwether of the collapse of western civilization or, on the other hand, revelatory that porn has absolutely no effect on civilization.

He’s just working on his pickup lines.

Bay Area Guy said...

"I have never gone to a porn site. Not once. Not in the entire time there has been a "world wide web."

Heh -- I am reminded of what Paul Newman once said, when asked why he didn't sleep around with Hollywood starlets, while married to Joanne Woodward. I paraphrase:

"Hey, why go out for burgers, when I can have steak right here at home?"

Way to go, Meade!

bagoh20 said...

"I have never gone to a porn site. Not once. Not in the entire time there has been a "world wide web."

That's wise. Seeing what Meade used to do for extra cash back in the day would not help the home life. Then again, maybe it would.

bagoh20 said...

" I kept getting emails about how to enlarge my [nonexistent] penis."

But no woman should be without one, and when you get it, you are gonna want to enlarge it. Everybody does.

Narr said...

A few months ago I took a few pix of my wife, just out of the shower, to see how the camera on my flip-phone works in steamy conditions. (I'm not really a Luddite, I just play one on the interwebs.)

About a week later we were eating out with our son and I handed him my phone to look at something and my wife blanched and blurted out-- "Uh, did you . . .?" Of course I had deleted them.

Narr
But it was a potentially awesome moment


Etienne said...

One of the changes, and downfall of Western Civilization, was the obsolescence of carbon paper.

Etienne said...

You can't just "delete" your wife's naked pictures.

This hasn't been true since MS-DOS. The only way to erase a memory device is with crypto-secure random numbers.

We use 10 runs to over-write, since about 5 years ago.

FullMoon said...

He was probably searching for the old Divinyls song and got misdirected.

Etienne said...

"you are gonna want to enlarge it"

After 65, the only thing you wish for in a penis, is flow.

It's a drag standing with your hand to the wall listening to the drip, drip, drip...

Kyzer SoSay said...

I can see the attraction. Girls in skintight outfits - vinyl, leather, spandex, etc - look pretty damn fine, especially if they have a bombshell figure. I've seen a few videos of that kind of stuff, and even tried it with various girls in real life (one of whom already owned such an outfit). Trust me, it's a lot more fun on a screen than in the bedroom. Those getups can take time to remove, and it's hard to do it very sexily since they need to be sorta peeled off rather than sensually removed. Good visual but not so practical. Some guys might enjoy the feel of a girl in that outfit, but when it comes time to end the foreplay and get down to business, I prefer the feel of skin over plastic or leather, so it's gotta come off.

Now fishnets and lace, on the other hand . . .

Geoff Matthews said...

I had once sent a screen shot to an employer that included a browser tab that had a job search site opened. Less embarrassing by far, but it raised questions.
And at the end of the day, nothing came of it.

Shouting Thomas said...

The prof’s combination of complete disinterest in porn, belief in the wonders and wholesomeness of homosexuality and goofball preaching about Marxist feminism and the oppression of rich, spoiled American women may be the weirdest sexual perversion I’ve ever encountered.

narciso said...

brit hume has stepped down, the last of a generation,

Known Unknown said...

Well all have to find ways to live on this planet. Godspeed Britt -- may you find your perfect vixen!

FullMoon said...

Good to do if you are seeking a raise.

Lucien said...

“Brit Hume” is a way better porn name than “Vinyl Vixen “.

Research the HOLEP procedure. More urologists are being trained (mostly at the Mayo Clinics) in it.

I had it a year ago and it has worked wonders. (I will be 67 next month). Given that my wife is 10 years younger, it was important that there are no sexual side effects. Everything works just fine.

Oso Negro said...

@ Mockturtle - it's 2020 honey! not all men have penises!

Bill Peschel said...

Francisco: Thank you. Don't need it now, but it may be needed in coming years.

Narr said...

Oh no, whatever will I do now? My wife's naked pix are on my permanent record!

I took some maybe-not-quite-porn bubble-bath photos of my wife, the old fashioned way, long ago, and for all I know the lab techs kept some for themselves . . . I cherish mine.

On the topic of OMB (Old Man Bladder) I've learned it ain't over till it's over.

Narr
And maybe not then

Etienne @2:48 PM: "It's a drag standing with your hand to the wall listening to the drip, drip, drip..."

I feel your pain, brother. I have an action to repaint that spot as soon as the weather is warm enough to open the window in that room while it's drying.

You reminded me of a limerick that was quoted by Kurt Vonnegut in one of his books:

"There once was a man from 'Stanbul
Who soliloquyed thus to his tool:
You've taken my wealth, and ruined my health,
And now you won't pee, you old fool."

Etienne said...

"I have an action to repaint that spot as soon as the weather is warm enough"

This is one of the reasons my wife won't let me use her bathroom. Besides my always leaving the seat up, and installing toilet paper the wrong way.

You know, there is no "wrong way" after the cat dies...
