  6. So Reggie's got something to offer the gays in the audience. So I guess we won't have any rumors about Reggie and Natasha.

  7. The Darwin post of the year. Meanwhile, Walter Cronkite is shaking in his grave.

    What a bush league journalist.

    1. And that's PRECISELY my point. I could care less about Mr. Aqui's sexual orientation; he's a goddamned TV NEWS anchor in the 6th largest market; what in the hell is he tweeting crap like this? And by the way, if it were a woman anchor doing the same thing (which any professional news woman would refrain from) she'd be an idiot too, just like Reggie Aqui, what a complete imbecile.

  8. Didn't think that Disney would have a guy who's that obvious about it in an O&O anchor position.

  9. So Mantas is Reggie's type. Wonder if the attraction is mutual?

  10. How about his tweet from April 12:

    Had meltdown in Paris metro bc I wanted to go to Disneyland, my partner wanted Versailles. That's reasonable, yes?

  11. Heaven help the Bay Area if there's a seriously major earthquake or another huge catastrophic calamity. The clowns at KGO-TV would be incapable of covering the story competently as they would have both thumbs stuck up their asses, looking totally baffled and bewildered.

  12. I think he wants to get "checked into the boards"

  14. It doesn't bug me if Aqui is gay, although I have to say that having Aqui and Drew Tuma doing weather the other day was so over the top I couldn't decide if they were having vogue competitions during the break having Natasha judge them or they were discussing their favorite skin softeners and facial cleansers. If a hetero male anchor posted something about a Warriors cheerleader in the same way Aqui posted about the Sharks signee, they'd be called into the office. Seems like a bit of a double standard to me. If you wanna post stuff like this, it's fine, but if you have some kind of media job, you should probably keep your Twitter account private. A comparison might be when Greg Hardy of the Cowboys made a comment about Tom Brady's model wife - you should be smart enough to know you have a high profile job at a regionally high profile organization and you can't say shit like that.

    1. Well-stated and exactly to my point.

      Bingo. The froot loop should be fired. Equal rights means EQUAL!

    1. Well, great, if that's what gets you off, you have quite a bit of spare time on your hand.

    2. Its a comment section.....I commented. It was in reality a complement. Is this what we have to look forward to as we slide down the hill into the next valley???

    3. And you deserve an apology; I'm sorry, starving too. My bad.

  16. I remember when Natasha, was brand new her second or third day she made a comment about Reggie and Tuma. She said something like oh boy I am surrounded by gays!

  17. I've completely given up on the local media, for the weather I look outside, crime, I listen for gunfire, entertainment, RL415.

  18. Well duh, what the hell else is new! The Country is morally bankrupt from coast to coast and border to border, and there is a gay guy doing the News, well duh!!

    Want a couple of examples, out of hundreds. More people attend Gay Pride parades, than Veterans Day parades!! The Porn industry makes more money each year than Basketball and Baseball combined...well duh!!

    1. The time is coming in America when all you normal people will be called the "Weird Ones."

    2. Or, the time is coming when freaks and freak apologists like 5:36 will eat their smug words.

    3. I am 4:59 and 5:36, plus a Vietnam Veteran, and one of the normal ones.

      It's like Savage says, "Put your baseball cap on backwards, pickup your smartphone and order a pizza, then turn on your computer and watch some porn, everything will be ok."

  19. Wow. I'm a sophomore again.

  20. I found the back and forth comments very entertaining today.
    I really liked the one in your piece, Rich.
    "It's about as low as it gets here, right now. Frankly, it's beyond embarrassing --it's really disgusting."
    I can only assume that was said by a person still in the closet. It's usually the overt gay bashers that are gay.

  21. .....on to bigger and better things.

  22. I've read through the posts and am sicken by all of these comments. I'm from Portland and Reggi was a treasure in this area!! He is famously funny and spontaneous. He is NOT there for your gay community. He brings to your SF attitudes some down to earth reporting and makes the seriousness of life better. Believe if there was your Big One he is serious. You should read his bio on the events he did cover and maybe you wouldn't be making those unwarranted remarks. So shame on you SF. You take yourself so serious
