When I saw this happen live, my jaw hit the floor. On “Fox & Friends” this morning, host Steve Doocey interviewed environmental queen Erin Brockovich. You may remember the film based on her fight to uncover industrial contamination — contamination that had seeped into one town’s water supply causing disease.
So what question did Doocey ask Brockovich to end the interview? Of course, “You drink the water out of the tap?”
Brockovich was stunned. “I wish you hadn’t asked me that,” she said with a nervous chuckle.
Doocey, looking slightly embarrassed, tried to recover: “I do. I think most people do, and that’s the scary part.”
