CNN's Very Own Frank Drebin

Here is a hilarious item from Thursday's "Reliable Source" in the Washington Post regarding an incident reminiscent of The Naked Gun:

Flush we must: Several hundred attendees at the Kaiser Family Foundation's conference yesterday on kids and the media with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton got a surprise earful before she spoke. Drew Altman, the foundation's president and CEO, was making introductory remarks when, suddenly, the unmistakable sound of a toilet flushing could be heard over the loudspeaker system. The culprit: moderator Jeff Greenfield of CNN, who used the facilities while wearing his remote microphone. He e-mailed us yesterday: "After 25 years in the business, you'd think I'd know when to turn a microphone off!"
