Dailies | CNN's Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer and Chris Cuomo Trash Ron Burgundy (Video)

All in good Funny or Die fun, of course

Ron Burgundy is a legend in his own right, but according to CNN's Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer and Chris Cuomo, he's also kind of a jerk.

“On camera he's one of the best,” Cuomo says in the Funny or Die video (above). “But off camera, he's a bit of an asshole.”

“A major prick,” Blitzer adds.

All three actual newsman are, of course, in awe of his signature mustache, among other characteristics of the fake anchor who Will Ferrell first brought to life in 2004's “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.”

“The truth is when I first graduated from college and I started reporting, I was just doing my best Ron Burgundy impression,” Cooper says. “I mean everyone was back then. The mustache — the whole persona.”

Paramount is releasing “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” in theaters on Dec. 18.

    Well isn't that calling the kettle black. Aren't these windbags, “jerks” as well? Maybe it's a competition? Maybe they are upset that Burgandy is getting all the ink because of his overt “jerkness?” Maybe these “other” anchors should come out of the jerk closet and embrace their “assholeness” as well. You stay classy CNN.

    This take is right off an Onion satire blog….Anchorman 2 is one I won't miss…Ron Burgundy has the mid 70s newsman down–the hair, the motorcycle cop ‘staches, the polyester, sideburns the size of Delaware, etc. But I don't get the guy in a cowboy hat.


    It is when one or should I say, many believe they have defeated EXECUTION over innocent victim's for selfish and illegal acts. Is when the exact Typhoon, that danced through Leyte Philippines. Comes unexpectedly, DESTROYING massive States, (foreign). With MASS DESTRUCTION. Leaving innocent bi standards, available to tell “Press”. Including, President Obama. What they saw, during the Typhoon! Surprisingly, yet NOT. PHILADELPHIA, SAN FRANCISCO, INDIA AND LOCAL SCHOOLS, GOVERNMENTS and (hitman). Were left stunned. When interviewed about significant DESTRUCTION, many didn't expect.

    Amazingly, a psychic had indicated on paper. Had it sealed and advised over 25 individuals NOT to open envelope given to them. Unless 1 or more predictions. In fact, proved TRUE. WHO CAN EXPLAIN SUCH PREDICTIONS, which gave great detail, including NAMES???? Wow, is this science or the power, of GOD? Psychic, in fact told several individuals about NEVER RECEIVING MAIL AND HOW TAMPERING OF MEDICAL INFO AND TAX RECORDS IS A PREDICTION OF WHAT COMES NEXT. THIS psychic is so sure of future predictions. That chosing 25 individuals to hold listed PREDICTIONS. Would verify what the future with holds. Great news. Of the 25 individuals. None of the 25, know each individual holding said predictions. Especially, some who have HUGE voices in public eyes!

    Let's see if listed predictions prove allegations. As the psychic did predict Typhoon and Names…

    Let's see what damages the Typhoon has caused and what comes next. One thing certain. Philadelphia was DESTROYED!
