After the chlorine incident at Midwest FurFest 2014, a reporter couldn’t hold back laughter when seeing folks outside, many still in their costumes. Lol
To be fair, it was a perfect set of embarrassing circumstances for some folks. The fire alarm went off late in the evening, so naturally, some were stuck in some revealing, eye opening attire xDD but oh well. It’s in the past.
While they probably should have verified the names before announcing them, the reporter did the right thing in just reading the names as they were presented to her. If they had been accurate and she had said "These names don't sound real" it would have been equally offensive. So she really did the only thing she could do while on air.
At least on "Make Believe" they were good sports and poked fun at the situation.
I love the "News Lessons" one. Even better if you see the full clip, the people the reporter interviewed were a tenant and landlord that were fighting before on camera. Then when the reporter and anchor started bickering the tenant and landlord were clearly smiling and laughing at them. I wonder if this ended up breaking the tension between them.
Instead of the poor woman having a stroke there was a similar situation to the O'Reilly one where a news director was yelling at his employees on camera during coverage of a tornado warning. His voice can clearly be heard calling the camera movements and calling someone a "bitch" I think one of the anchors.
Another funny one could be a reporter dancing to "Watch Me (Whip/Ne Ne.)"
Here's an idea: utterly destroy the actual humor and impact of these bits by bleep-censoring them in case some uneducated goddamned homeschooled fundamentalist Christian or Muslim is watching and might object. To quote Bill OReilly: "Fuck it !" To quote Jack Nicholson: "You can't HANDLE the truth."
omg the dude said "Keep PLUCKING That Chicken." as in Keep at it till you finish. dont give up. He was NOT Talking about FUCKING a Chicken. You got the context Completely Wrong on Several of these clips.
I think news reporters shouldn't always have that serious face and act serious all the time. It's nice to see them have fun and chill and relax while telling the news. It adds a fun vibe and is more entertaining
The whole current corrupt "media' completely falls apart for good. Scandals everywhere! Every lie exposed. Thousands to prison and worse. No place will be safe for them! Their treason will be recognized everywhere by all people. Their lives are over! The American peoples day of reckoning has arrived. America is healed. America is reborn. Power to the people.
Shepherd Smith is openly gay, Watchmojo. I always laugh when leftists claim there's no diversity of Fox News, when CNN is 100% white, heterosexual Ivy League graduates. (BTW...CNN should have the #1-10 positions here).
I know this video is now 3 years old, but I really wish people wouldn't have then and wouldn't even now include Serene Branson's terrifying, for her, moment in there lists of reporting blunders. She didn't stumble over her words, she had a complex migraine, which is similar in symptoms you having a stroke. The poor woman didn't know what was happening and she had a full emotional breakdown right after, it's just so awful to treat it like it's funny.
