OOPS – Chris Schauble Does it Again

Chris Schauble says WTF live on NBC, Los Angeles

Television reporter/news anchor Chris Schauble is in trouble again. First, it was saying WTF on air on KNBC.

Now, it is saying insensitive, if not down right racist, comments about Hispanics.

A Latino-focused media watchdog is calling on KTLA to force its morning show anchor to apologize on air for a seemingly racist comment made last week about Latinos.

Last Monday, KTLA 5 Morning News co-anchor Chris Schauble insinuated that bond hearings are as common to Latinos as baptisms and graduations, the National Hispanic Media Coalition said Monday.

While airing a segment in which reporter Allie Mac Kay interviewed the manager and employees of El Coyote Mexican Restaurant, Schauble appeared to jokingly add “bond hearings” to a list of common life events the mostly Latino employees attend together.

You can watch the clip here, since it has been removed from the KTLA website.

My recommendation to Chris Schauble is to apologize, take some sensitivity training and watch your mouth, if you want to continue in

broadcast television.
