Oops: Another Gaffetastic Fox 5 Moment

What is it with these Fox 5 anchors?
A debate about what to call soy milk on "Good Day New York" this morning took an odd turn when veteran Fox 5 anchorwoman Rosanna Scotto pulled a Sue Simmons on live TV.

Scotto and her fellow anchors were debating the National Milk Producers Federation's arguement that products should only be called “milk” when it comes from an animal, not soy or rice.

When the topic of what to call soy milk came up, Scotto blurted out, “Soy ji---um!"

Scotto's confused co-anchor, Greg Kelly, looked on in disbelief as the banter continued during the live show.

"Rosanna!" Kelly said in a reprimanding tone.

This is not the first time a TV anchor has gotten into hot water for their salty comments.

WNYW/Channel 5 brass apologized last year after Ernie Anastos' chicken-flavored cussing during the 10 o'clock news. The popular anchorman, a colleague of Scotto's, blurted out, "Keep f- - -ing that chicken" to the shock of viewers last September.
An truly immortal moment that was.
