I feel really bad at laughing at this but it’s just too perfect, timing-wise. What are the odds of this taking place? It makes me feel like lesser of a human being getting any sort of enjoyment from this, but I just can’t help myself. When Laura got struck by lightning I’d bet she didn’t...
With the popularity of Twitter and Facebook and with their constant stream of information, it’s only natural that a lot of use get our “breaking news” from such sites. A message can spread on Twitter faster than CNN can get the story, write it and post it. This happened recently with Wyclef Jean (of the...
“I watch the catastrophe play out on television. In Japan, a baby is lifted from the rubble and swathed in a blanket. A young woman is bleeding. An unconscious man is strapped to a stretcher. The streamer at the bottom of the screen says: ‘Victoria Beckham expecting a girl … Aerosmith, J-Lo both slated to appear...
Most everyone has at the very least heard of Anonymous but there has been a lot of different information about them floating around on their motives and tactics. Part of the issue is that they are not a “set” group per se. They are composed of individuals who come together for various reasons. Describing itself...
This might be a town I’d enjoy living in. I would feel safe not only that events like this bring caution, but also that the police respond in such a manner and even further that it makes the daily paper. Could you imagine only having things like this to report. Clearly when this is the...
Meet 5-year old Joey, the Junior Reporter for the Chicago Blackhawks. He asks the tough hitting questions like “How much do you get from the Tooth Fairy?” and “Who’s the biggest turkey on the team?” This cute little bugger is better than most of the reporters covering the NHL and he’s just a half century...
This is an incredible display of bravery by Seattle’s KOMO4 reporter Shomari Stone. While doing a report at Pike Place’s Victor Steinbrueck Park a fight broke out. What did the reporter do? Naturally he stepped in and diffused the situation. What makes this a bit more impressive is that the man he helped rescue has...
Ouch! That’s quite a zing this anchorwoman delivers to her co-host. Pretty quick and witty if you ask me. I love to see awkward moments like this on live TV. Matter of fact, things like this make we watch more than the news itself. Apparently Natarsha Belling of Australia’s TEN News doesn’t like her work...
It’s very easy to develop a man crush on the best American reporter in the Middle East. Richard Engel is nice, polite and has written two books. He’s also been churning out some of the best reporting on the Egypt revolution (and the soon to come other revolutions) this side of Al-Jazeera. His Wikipedia page...
This story about the Egyptian Revolution appeared on jboitnott.com back in 2010. At that time, the country of Egypt found itself in a stage of remarkable upheaval. Hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets, rallying against the rule of an autocrat named Hosni Mubarak. These events captured the world’s attention for weeks. Because...
