These days, it seems that no news broadcast or Website is complete without a report about a public figure saying or doing something that raises eyebrows. Welcome to the era of the gaffe, folks. What is the fascination with slips of the tongue, missteps, and mistakes? Can we no longer say things that are even mildly controversial? Must we have public-relations experts on hand every time we share an opinion that might not play well with others? What about when we simply goof up?

These days, it seems that no news broadcast or Website is complete without a report about a public figure saying or doing something that raises eyebrows. Welcome to the era of the gaffe, folks.
