Although this anchorman should have been able to space the intro and the headlines better, it’s important for the teleprompter to have proper punctuation. This is Ken Bastida of KPIX, a CBS affiliate in the San Francisco Bay Area market, but maybe after this flub he should move down to the San Diego area because...
In yet another blunder for FOX News, last night they used a photo of Tina Fey from an SNL skit of former Governor Sarah Palin during a report. The report was on the Palin’s statement that she was 50/50 on running for president in 2012…let’s just say that I’d be more apt to vote in...
This reporter for FOX News might want to reconsider his wording for this particular story. Seems almost like he snuck that one in on purpose. What do you think? It still blows me away, all the errors and blunders that are made by professional news journalists. You’d imagine that with being on live TV every...
This NBC12 field reporter thought a quick shot with a friendly camel would be easy. Sometimes the easy assignments turn into the more interesting ones. I like how the cameraman was able to keep filming and help her with one hand…and how she asked if he was still rolling. Anything for the shot, right?
This might be the end-all-be-all in news reporter slip ups. I’d be surprised to see her on the air again anytime soon. Granted it’s easy to see how she could make the mistake…but over and over again. …and to report that the CIA ordered it. I do feel bad for her. I always get embarrassed...
With the Royal Wedding all wrapped up, there is/was a lot of specualtion on when and where the newlyweds are going for their Honeymoon (it’s been postponed while William returns to work for a week) but the odds favorites on most betting sites is New Zealand. One reporter thought she’d get the opinion of some...
With the speed of news now a days, it’s becoming increasing common to find typos from major news outlets. Sadly it’s more common than it should be. You would imagine that a site as high profile as NPR would not make these mistakes, but I guess with lack of funding this is the type of...
At the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, California they were to attempt the Guinness World Record for most people inside of a bubble. Fan Yang is the man behind the feat. He needs to get 150 people inside one massive bubble. To cover the event, one news team sent an inept reporter out to...
This looks like it could be something straight out of the forth coming Grand Theft Auto. By no means is this your “ordinary” police chase. For starters, it involves an 18-wheeler loaded with lumber. If that weren’t enough, the wood goes up in flames after the rear tire is blown out, and a lit tire...
Where we get our news is changing quite a bit. What started as gab at the local feed shop is now instantly in our hands. Once delivered by local newspapers, then through the airwaves via radio and TV and of course most recently the internets. But increasingly we are getting our news now on-the-go. With...
