Who said it - Kay Burley or Kent Brockman?

We rather think they’d get on…

THERE’S JUST SOMETHING particularly amusing about televised news when things go wrong or reporters say something they didn’t quite think through.

We all know Sky News veteran Kay Burley has had her moments – from her almost worrying levels of excitement about the royal babies to her, er, robust (?) interview technique with some guests.

So, we want to know if you can tell her style from that of serious and well-respected Simpsons journalist Kent Brockman.

Have at it…

"Well, what do you say to the accusation that your group has been causing more crimes than it's been preventing?"

"I know that I am a very bad Catholic. I know now that it is Ash Wednesday and I know that those are ashes on his forehead. I hang my head in shame."

Brockman
"Five murders, in six weeks - do you think if you'd had a better sex life he wouldn't have done them?"

Brockman
"All this drinking, violence, destruction of property. Are these the things we think of when we think of the Irish?"

"Are you sorry? For the way you behaved today?"

"Sir, why did you wait until the last minute to pay your taxes?"

"Dozens of people are gunned down each day, but until now, none of them was important."

"Nonsense, get over yourself".

"Hordes of panicky people seem to be evacuating the town for some unknown reason."
