Reporter says on live TV that her co-anchor has a small penis.:

To be fair, this youtube video has a lot of similar comments.
and that's how Equestria was made!

We typically expect national television to be, if not more culturally elevated, at least less obviously coarse than Youtube comments. Slightly, anyway.

Skins is nothing compared to MTV. Generally, whatever else is on TV is not indicative of rest of the stuff that's on that channel.
The thing about making witty signature lines is that it first needs to actually be witty.

The comment could have been a joke taken out of context by the very short clip, a joke longer than 4 seconds. It doesn't even need to necessarily be a joke; it could just be a comment taken out of context.
"It's still horrendously sophomoric, unprofessional, and crude, but then again this is the same country that came up with Skins and made it a hit, so what do you expect?" - Wanderhome

That's a bit of a sidestep. The issue is the Double Standard applied to men who would make similar comments about women.

If he had sex with his co-worker recently and his... equipment proved inadequate, he really, really, really, shouldn't have brought the comment on himself by joking about small stuff.

You exist because we allow it and you will end because we demand it.
Any evidence that this man either a) actually has a small dick, and b) had sex with his co-worker, claiming that these things? I don't care, this is still the most colossally stupid thing I've seen for some time.

So I should avoid all instances of Accidental Innuendo just avoid my coworkers immaturity? How about we all just grow up instead?

Laugh it off, everybody
*blink*
I spread my wings and I learn how to fly....
I actually found the original Youtube clip funny and am not offended by it.

Edit: Looks like the man in the clip found it funny too.

So if a flat-chested woman joked about small stuff, would it be okay for a man to make fun of her flat chest on-air?

EDIT: That and avoiding Accidental Innuendo is easier said than done.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
