Hugh Hewitt Says "Tit" on the Air?

Sorry for not reporting as diligently on O.C. conservative yakmouth Hugh Hewitt as I did last year, but got a gem for you: yesterday, I do believe Baby Hewie said "tit" on the air!!!

The context: Hewie was interviewing former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich near the 3 p.m. hour, mostly so the two could vent about President Barack Obama. The segment was a disaster from the start: listeners of KRLA-AM 870 didn't hear Gingrich's first two comments due to a curious station silence. They then talked about the auto giants, where around 14 minutes into Hewie's show, he started rambling about General Motors sucking on what I heard to be "the public tit." Obviously, Hughcifer wanted to say "teat," but it came out wrong. Flabbergasted that it wasn't beeped out, I kept listening to see if Hewie would say the term again—and he did, correctly.

You won't hear Hugh say "tit" on the audio available online (it's about after the 14-minute mark here) but I swear on my Santo Niño de Atocha I heard Hewitt say "tit." The only natural ability God granted me was super-good hearing, so I know differences in sounds. Of course, if Hewie did say the word, I don't believe in reprimands or Freudian slips (someone should ask me about the time I accidentally insulted Arabs at a UCLA graduate seminar shortly after 9-11). And don't think I was looking for an excuse to write a post, either: if I wanted to easily bash Hugh, God knows there's so many opportunities...
