Biting the Hand that Wanks you

shameoneyou.jpgThe hard-hitting newsmen and women at CBS News in New York decided to follow last night's spankin' Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (Grambo review, TK) with a report on how unsanitary Victoria's Secret retail stores are. Here's a cringe-inducing sample of the report:

John, not his real name, is a disgruntled former employee of two Victoria's Secret stores. He came to us with the revolting allegation that it was store practice to take back used underwear and then resell it.
"When women would come in, I would be disgusted. I knew they were returning something they wore out to a date or just wore out to a club and it's like, you want another woman to buy this?" said John.
[Reporter Arnold] Diaz asked John if there were there times that he put back underwear that he was pretty sure was used, "Yeah, all the time, all the time. I don't even like touching it, I hold it by the tag because I don't want to put my hands on that."

What the hell do you call that? An apology? A rebuke? Synergy?
