TWiT’s Abortion of a Live Event at the Crunchies 2016 Featuring Sarah Lane

Tee hee!
Tee hee!

After the firing of Mike Elgan, TWiT has exactly two full-time hosts now: Megan and Jason.

With FMCP out of town, we wondered who TWiT would send to cover the 2016 TechCrunch Crunchies.

As it turns out, they sent Tonya Hall, someone who can’t stop an interview when she’s dealing with a former employee who — shall we say — is not at her best.

You can see everything in the video above. The Sarah Lane interview is a bit long, but it’s worth watching. The rest involves Tonya thinking everyone knows who Leo Laporte and TWiT are. Of course, no one does.

We hope you enjoy the video compilation of what was cut out of the version TWiT posted online.

  1. Holy Shit!

    WTF was wrong with Sarah???!!!

    Was the brain-eating parasite active during this interview or was she drunk and high. Like she took some pills with a bottle of champagne.

    Why is no one addressing how fucked up Sarah is in this video?

        Of course TwiT didn’t simply delete the video since it contains nothing of value… other than making Sarah look bad

      Seen type of behavior before, appears to be reactions from painkillers and alcohol. Poor Sarah, very sad for her and very embarrassing for her company. This needs to removed ASAP

      Abandonment issues? Fading looks? Meaningless career? Fucking a boss who is way below her status and enduring the shame of continuing to work for him for years? Regret over not securing a husband and having children when she had the chance? Knowledge that another marriage this late in the game would end in another divorce? Knowledge that she’s ruined herself for any decent man by publicly dating blacks?

          Yeah, keep on enabling suffering spinsters with your white knight persona. We’re just saying what needs to be said, for Sarah’s sake and for the sake of younger women who might see this drunk human wreckage washed up on the shore, struggling to converse with a blubbery seal and resolve to not end-up that way.

          Sarah needs help. Why wont you choose courage over cowardice and help her by speaking the truth?

          Part of helping her is showing her that there is hope. She doesn’t have to be alone. It’s merely that – after a year or so of recovery – she’ll have to lower her standards because men who are successful and have options avoid women who are too drunk or dumb to indulge their mandingo fetishes discreetly. It’s not that Sarah “just happened” to date a black guy once and she’s oh-so post-racial. She’s made a sport of it publicly because she’s been on downward spiral of booze and drugs and probably has no clue (or care) how she comes across (drunks are funny that way). At any rate, decent guys run like the plague from the self-destructive and chronically indiscreet.

          Oh, and for all you spineless, SJW boot-licking, racism-crying, creeps.. fetishizing blacks for sexual purposes is a tell-tale sign of prejudice as old as slavery itself. Get a clue.

          1. Because when you say something like “publicly dating a black” it sounds like there’s something inherently wrong with dating a black man and thus one should think twice about being public about it.

            He’s referring to choice of words used being indefensible, not Sarah’s actions… so whether Sarah acknowledges said fact is moot.

            Again, it’s a statement of fact. Maybe he’s referring to the trend that many women go the coal route on dating.

            And, as I’m sure you’re aware, this forum is the least likely place for SJWs to get a sympathetic ear.

            Again, move to the South Bronx for a month and maybe you’ll see the light, as you’ll be surrounded by dark thugs.

      2. Actually, I think Sarah’s career is looking up since leaving Twit. And hell, we’re all aging. I don’t care who she has dated, or if she is comatose drunk – I would like to spend some quality time with her.

          » Quote comment

    5. That was fucking amazing.

      She was always a stuck up, pretentious, overly liberal bitch. Everytime she over-enunciated on TNT I wanted to reach over and smash her face into the table, then I remembered I was remote.
      She’s been trying to avoid the old cat lady life for way to long. Leo had mentioned during the pre-show during iFive or whatever the fuck it was called some allusion to a medical condition. Maybe it was bi-polar. Either way the illusion of her life seems to be coming to an end.

      BTW, everyone should stop giving Toyna and Leo so much credit, no way they were quick or slick enough to plan this, especially since they’re so busy trying to force feed calories down in preparation for next great famine they’ve convinced themselves is coming….

  2. Why is that event important to cover? Regardless, I think Tonya could have done a better job. First of all not everyone knows TWiT, don’t take it personally, not everyone knows every company out there, not everyone watches netcasts or whatever you want to call them.

    Also, maybe before the interview you could mention your company name, and what you do, say I am Tonya from TWiT, an online news/tech video site and we’re covering this event because of X, Y and Z. And then get to the interview.

    A good idea is also when you mention that you are based in Petaluma, to always say that it is a 50 min drive or whatever in distance from SF. Again, not everyone knows every city in the country, some places are well known and others aren’t, no big deal.

    Finally, while I do think that Leo Laporte is the chief TWiT or whatever his title is, this is TWiT the company covering an event, do not drop his name and again assume that everyone knows who he is, that only makes Leo and the person being interviewed look bad.

    PS. Even Elgan did a better job at interviews than Tonya, I mean, act like an adult at least. If you see someone is not in a state to be interviewed maybe cut it shot ot just ask one question or say hi or whatever, I mean, talk about not getting a hint.

    1. Nonsense. If you’ve got a lunatic or a raving drunk spewing gibberish in front of you — go long. It is hilarious and fun. And, as you can tel here, the audience loves it. It would have been much better at the end if the two, instead of hugging, did a wet tongue kiss exchanging a lot of spit and making it obvious. A tit rub would be good too. Now that’s entertainment! Sarah was drink enough to do it.

  3. Wow, This is embarrassing. Was fatty hall given instruction to continually bombard sarah with questions simply from the previous professional (?) history. A quality journalist would have instantly recognized this interview was like driving a gasoline truck into fireworks factory, based on her mental state. I don’t blame sarah, I blame twit for taking advantage of her and making her look badly when she clearly wasn’t expecting to be part of media coverage.

  4. HOLY SHIT>>>>>> I CANT BELIEVE SOMEBODY ACTUALLY LET THIS AIR / BE AVAILABLE.

    If I didnt know better , I would say this is a Funny or Die bit. Fucking morons!!!! Sarah ‘s true self shows clearly with the alcohol, and how dum she is. Tonya is fucking clueless and a tard muncher. And hilarious to see the cluelessness and irrelevance of Leo Laporte. How could anyone allow this to take place much less be published in their name…!!???

    HA FUCKING HA!!! Leo you douche!

      Who needs a husband and children when you have a pointless career interrupted by frequent alcohol-fueled get-aways with swarthy ethnic men of every hue, willing to indulge her fetishes and ‘fill the void’ in her soul and other places…

  6. This week in TV. “TeeHee Tongue out” should be the tagline for TWAT.
    Anybody with half a mind should have notice after a few words that Sarah is under the influence of some substance and let her move on. To stretch out an interview like that is not tech journalism it’s Yellow Press. TWAT sets the bar again like in the last round of a limbo dance. Unprofessional and desperate for content … anything goes. Did TwiTV have any sponsors in this netcast ? If so, they sure must be proud to have their name attached.

  7. Goddamn…the people associated with TWiT are fucked up as shit! Drunk as fuck Sarah Lane, Two Ton Tonya who just can’t stop feeding her fat face. No body knows who the fuck Leo Laporte is. What a disaster this this whole piece of shit organization is. Run by a narcissistic dirt bag who hates his ever decreasing fan base. Amazing shit. Embarrassing for the sponsors and advertisers who have no clue what their wasting their money on. Podcasts thousands of times better than TWiT are more deserving of this revenue.

  10. Hardly worth covering these awards or whatever the hell it was. Lane was pissed as, a bad look but she has very little talent and attraction anyway. Stopped listening to TWIT ages ago but TD is sometimes funny to read. The network is on the way out, but really no loss to the podcast industry there are probably many more podcasts/vidcasts that should go as well. TWIT wont be remembered.

  11. This is an example of how not to mix business and pleasure. Serving alcohol to tech children, like Sarah Lane, who cannot handle it with any sense of responsibility. Work is work and partying is partying these days because everyone has a video camera to catch it when one screws up. I sense that there is a deeper issue with Sarah though, maybe she will make the tech news one day with her own headline.

    Oh, and I hope she gets terminated and has to sell herself to just make it.

    If the interviewer was any good, the questioning would have stopped after the first couple of slurs and stumbles. Clearly, she was allowed to go on to destroy herself.

    1. Sarah Lane is definitely looking for a man in the wrong profession. In the nerd culture all you’re gonna find are twerps, wimps, and Leo Laportes that haven’t even seen the Rocky movies because it involves the words sports and exercise

      1. Sarah prefers black and brown gentleman and has been more-or-less open about it for several years. Apparently, she hasn’t really been looking for men in the tech scene for quite some time.

          1. No one is “hating” on blacks (or as Leo likes to say, the “niggras”).

            But, if we’re going to use black dialect, I might say I’m simply “tellin’ it like it is” or “keepin’ it rill”.

            Sarah has a fetish for black men = fact
            There are scarcely few of the coloreds in tech = fact
            Therefore, Sarah looks outside of tech to get her bell rung.

            Your racial guilt-tripping will find no purchase here, Owen JJ Stone.

            I don’t think he’s a racist at all. Sarah has tweeted photos of her and black dudes. It’s very trendy, of course, for black guys to date (bottle) blondes.

            And if he’s a “racist,” why do you fucking care? He has the right to think what he wants without you going all SJW all over him. Jesus Christ you SJWs are fucking annoying.

  13. I doubt it, but watching the video it was almost like they did this on purpose to Sarah. It was as if someone saw her inebriated and then drug her in front of the camera for an interview. It went on way too long. Part of me feels bad for Sarah, another part of me thinks Sarah was just partying, got drug in front of the camera and with it being TWiT she was just like “fuck it” and gave a shitty drunk interview.

  14. Wow, just when we think that TWiT cannot sink any lower, they find a way to burrow deeper into the whale shit. Absolutely messed up video and poor Sarah Lane should not have been in front of a camera with that much buzz.

    Perhaps Leo can take up a collection from donor who want to take a hammer swing at that brick wall brought to you by the fans of a former decent network of podcasts. I sure as hell would pay to remove my name from the wall of the $hithouse after this video.

Will they get their money back?”

    She’s compelled to staff TWiT with frumps partially because it’s politically fashionable, but also because she’s jealous of younger, attractive women and will put her pettiness before the success of TWiT.

  18. Owen Stone is that guy that shows up at a nerd party to mooch cigarettes and beer and because he puts on the face of “Like me and you’ll be cool” the tech nerd crowd falls for it. There are alot of tech nerds out there that would give their left nut to feel like they are accepted in society. Owen has just figured out how to exploit that.

    1. I’ve no idea, how bizarre. Leo and/Lisa must’ve been convinced that he has even some vague connection to tech to decide to hire him for his appearances. There is no online documentation of his involvement in tech/startups/business. Hmm…

        How hasn’t there been an article on this guy. I guess I f Lisa can be CEO then Owen JJ Stone can be the new Dvorak.

        The way Leo holds a whore/mistress up to the world as a shining example of what a woman can achieve is very much akin to how he holds a welfare-recipient moron up as an example of his non-racist ways. The opposite is true.

        Make a video of every Owen clip from twit and you will see him say nothing of any value besides tech memes. Edit out all of Leo, Hiner and Alex.

        Every episode Owen is on, Leo always brings up race, somehow the movie Straight Outta Compton even came up, Leo says he wants his “perspective” but that means his thoughts are worthless on their own merit. Don’t waste your time counting how many times Leo did his Do-The-Right-Thing street accent. Countless.

    2. His LinkedIn profile claims since 1999 he has been the co-owner and operator of two UPS Stores in New Jersey along with a more vague media-based Inquiring Mindz Media LLC since 2003 developing brands. I’m still not sure I answered my own question though.

  19. He probably delivered a phone to Leo once through his UPS outlet, saw that Leo was a doofus and learned to bullshit his way on podcasts like Leo does. He does say he learned alot from Leo.

  20. Wow. How does TWIT ever expect to be taken seriously as a tech news outlet? This is the kind of shit that they produce? A fill-in reporter that can’t even get the name of the show correct and can’t get the hint that the person they are interviewing is drunk and/or high. They said that they were going to cover more live events yet they pretty much dumped all their in-house on-air talent. Next thing you know it’ll be the janitor reporting from Mobile World Congress. Even the mic itself could use a nicer version of their logo on it. It looks cheap and slapped together. Overall, the whole production reeks of amateurism. TWIT wants to look and feel like a professional tech news organization while trying to do it on the cheap and with no real on-air talent.

    Regarding OhDoctah, I have also been wondering for a while exactly what his credentials are. There’s nothing to suggest that he is involved in the tech industry, past or present. He sounds like some crazed Leo fan that bugged him enough times that he finally let him be a recurring guest on his show.

    1. Twit have a male & female house negro now. Twit knows diversity is important. in tech. O-Dr was shipped over quite a while ago & has served Leo well but he wanted 1 of each gender so he could breed them in the future so Liberty was trapped & shipped across the ocean to Twit.
      They are both terrible as tech journalists but Liberty is loud, annoying & dumb for all to see while O-Dr does a much better job at covering up his limitations with personality that is yet to be shipped for LIberty

    2. He replied to someone on Twitter that he has a “media” company that seems to have no visible website to describe it, and that he co-owns 2 ups stores. So clearly he has the chops to speak in the tech space.

  21. Wow… The Sarah Lane interview should had been cut short already at “Ya…yah think?…??”. She got zero content from it anyway.

    Also: Tonya, if you read this: to try the microphone looped back in a pair of headphones to get a feeling for the microphone directionality. You come off as very unprofessional when your own voice and the people you talk to is cut off because you move the mic away.

  22. I can’t get over how FAT Tonya Hall is. Jesus Christ. No self discipline. Eats shit. Sits on ass all day. Disgusting. There is no such thing as having a “health condition” that causes this type of obesity. Ok…maybe like 1% might have a genetic abnormality. I never liked Sarah Lane. Always thought she was lame as shit. Now it’s pretty clear. She’s lame as shit. The whole “TWiT Family” is one train wreak after another. So glad when it all shuts down for good.

  23. Sarah has always been a bit slow when taken off script, it was the same when she had to do punditry on Tech News Today she’s not a quick thinker by nature. The alcohol just magnifies her natural state. Give her a script/prompter and she shines.

    I’m never going to make a point of watching Sarah Lane’s Tech Crunch show – unless TechCrunch suffers a hostile takeover by MeUndies.

    But my main impression wasn’t really about Sarah Lane it was about tech journalism and the tech industry. Tech journalism is a worthless, superficial, steaming pile of shit. And the companies that tech journalists talk about are often worthless piles of shit as well. We need a huge tech industry crash to thoroughly sift the wheat from the chaff.

    1. Give her a script/prompter and she READS. She always sounded like she was reading…sing-songy approach, no emotion, no real effort to make it sound like she wasn’t reading. Overrated.

      1. When Mike Elgan and Sarah Lane fronted Tech News Today they started using prompters. Elgan, a far better journalist than Lane , was made to look like a mentally retarded individual by Lane’s ability to actually use a prompter – it was totally embarrassing for Elgan . You may not rate her ability but many people are far worse.
