I had to do a double take the other night when I turned on Charlie Rose to find him inexplicably sporting a black eye. Tech Crunch has the details:

Viewers of the Charlie Rose show tonight were stunned to see the normally composed Rose looking like he’d just been in a bar fight. He has a very bad black eye and a bandage over part of his forehead. I contacted the show’s producers to hear what happened. Earlier today, they said, Rose tripped in a pothole while walking on 59th Street in Manhattan. He was carrying a newly purchased MacBook Air and made a quick (but ultimately flawed) decision while falling: sacrifice the face, protect the computer. “In doing so, he pretty much hit the pavement face first, unfortunately,” they said. Luckily the MacBook Air survived the fall. “The Macbook Air is fine, he showed us the blood stains on it this morning.”

    Well with the way you have him falling, it looks like he wants to join the Brown Eye mystery school....LOL

    FIERCE...

    Maybe he'll start a newscasters trend! How hot would it be to see Brian Williams sporting a fat lip and missing tooth, or Lou Dobbs with a bloodied wad shoved up one nostril -- like some sort of news anchors Fight Club! Better sharpen those french tips Katie Couric!
