Reporter overboard!
April 9th, 2014 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]


via NewsBreaker
A Dutch reporter was interviewing the Mayor on a boat, a location she quickly regretted. That’s because as she reached for the wire above the boat, it threw her off balance and she went overboard. Her sound man tried to help her out of the water with his boom mic, although I am not sure if he was trying to save her or make sure her reaction was coming in crystal clear.
BTW you’d think a politician would wait for the reporter to finish a bad interview before they made them walk the plank, not when it was just starting out.

Sacremento Cabbies are upset they’ll need to be hygienically clean
March 19th, 2014 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]


Let’s all be honest, how many times have you gotten into a cab and regretted it as soon as you got inside because your cab driver stinks. Well Sacremento wants to make it a law that the cabbies need to be hygienically clean and the drivers are not happy about it according to CBS 13. So much so they got out of their taxis to protest at City Hall.
I hope that Sacremento passes the law because the last time I took a cab I had a really bad allergy reaction because my driver smelled so bad, and I would love more cities to follow suit.
Do you think the requirement is fare or unfare?

Don’t you love when you see a penis during breaking news?
March 18th, 2014 under TV News. [ Comments: 1 ]


(NSFW)

So Fox 31 in Denver was going live with some breaking news out of Seattle this morning; when instead of seeing the horrible plane crash, they accidentally showed the side view of a naked man’s pelvic area. Now I am not saying that his penis wasn’t nice to look at, but the faces on 3 out of the 4 anchors when they saw it was absolutely priceless! Their shock and awe was just awesome. Plus, I love that the 4th anchor went on as though nothing happened. He probably made that same shocked face during the commercial break when he realized what came up during his story.
BTW I feel really bad for the person who gets blamed for that error because they are now out of a job.

This is how I should’ve acted when the Quake hit
March 17th, 2014 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]


So if you follow anyone on Twitter from LA or know someone from the area on Facebook, then you know we had a pretty scary earthquake here this morning. When it happened, I was in bed with my cat and tried to calm her down instead of running for safety. Which I know I am supposed to do, but didn’t.
While I made the mistake of staying in bed, these KTLA anchors acted correctly during the Quake. So while I looked calm and collected, they looked funny as they realized what was going on. I know I shouldn’t make fun of them for doing what I should’ve done, but I think that is why I am laughing at them. Especially now that my heart rate is almost back to normal.

Fox News won’t be winning any Spelling Bees anytime soon
March 10th, 2014 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]


via Media Matters
It is inevitable that occasionally a newscast will misspell a word every now and again on their chyrons, and most of the time you can let it go. But when they misspell Spelling Bee as Spelling Be, you have to laugh at Fox News for making such a stupid mistake. Well I guess on a positive note, at least they spelled Spelling correctly.

Snow Plow 1 Reporter 0
March 3rd, 2014 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]


So WTXF’s Steve Keely went live about the snow storm this morning from Woodstown, NJ. Well, he was basically going off on the snow plows and saying that because it was snowing so hard and fast they weren’t really making a difference. Then 4 of them came out of nowhere in a row and one of them nailed him with a lot, and I do mean a lot, of snow. Seriously, there was so much so snow you couldn’t even see him in the white out and yet he kept on going like nothing had happened. Which is great endurance on his part because I would’ve gone into the livetruck and cried until it stopped snowing. But he manned up and took his Karma punishment like a man.
BTW I wonder if that snow plow driver had Fox 29 on in his truck because the timing was way too perfect.

CNN finally cancels Piers Morgan Tonight!
February 24th, 2014 under TV News. [ Comments: 3 ]


Three years ago, CNN announced that Piers Morgan was going to replace Larry King at 9p on weeknights, and I knew back then it was a mistake. Finally after hitting another ratings low this week, the news channel decided to deport him from their schedule some time next month. He basically told The NY Times that us Americans never accepted him because he is British. I want to say that is not why I opted not to accept him, it’s because I never trusted him since he is such a pompous a$$. I hated him on America’s Got Talent and The Celebrity Apprentice; and it was because of his arrogance and not because of his nationality. He’s the type of guy who is the only one who laughs at his own jokes and enjoys the boring stories he tells. But that’s me and the thousands of people who stopped tuning in. I say thousands because his show was barely ever seen by a million people on any given night.
Now when it comes to who CNN should replace him with, I have no idea because they don’t have anyone worthy of the position in the bullpen. Personally, if I were them, I would bring back Larry King. Although I think he is content doing his thing over at OraTv. Let’s just hope and pray Jeff Zucker doesn’t give that position to one of his former employees like Katie Couric or Jay Leno. Granted, he has made so many mistakes with CNN since he started a year ago, I wouldn’t be shocked if he did give the job to one of them. I would just be saddened as I am with everything else he has done besides get rid of Piers Morgan.

UPDATE: Piers Morgan responded to his show cancellation on Twitter and he was finally humbled.

Don’t ever confuse Samuel L Jackson for another actor
February 10th, 2014 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]


Samuel L Jackson was on KTLA this morning to talk about Robocop and Sam Rubin asked him about the Super Bowl commercial he was in. Only problem, is Shaft wasn’t in any Super Bowl ad this year. The person that the Entertainment Reporter was thinking of was Laurence Fishuburne. Well Jackson went all Pulp Fiction on him and said that not all African Americans look alike. He then launched into a Snakes on a Plane like rant describing the other actors to Rubin so he wouldn’t get them confused again.
Personally, I have never liked Sam Rubin, so I am happy that Jackson called him out for making a stupid mistake on the air. Granted it happens to all of us, I once confused Doris Roberts for Renee Taylor; but at least mine was off-camera.
Now back to Rubin, he did an on-air apology to Jackson a half hour afterwards and tried to make it as thought he was talking about the Captain America ad that aired during the football game. Do you believe him because I don’t.

Matt Damon has a thing for tying up TV hosts
February 4th, 2014 under Matt Damon, TV News. [ Comments: none ]


Remember last year when Matt Damon kidnapped and tied up Jimmy Kimmel, so that the Talented Mr Ripley could host the Jimmy Kimmel Live? Well, looks like he has done it again, and this time he did it to Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos.
So I guess Jason Bourne should come with a warning if he is booked to appear on a television talk show, be prepared for him to kidnap and tie up the host of the show so that he can do it himself.
Who knew there was such an evil man behind that baby sweet face?

Don’t crash Jim Cantore’s live shots unless you want to be kneed!
January 29th, 2014 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]


Jim Cantore was doing a liveshot from the College of Charlseton for the Weather Channel when one of the students tried to crash his liveshot. As the guy was running and screaming towards him, the weatherman lifted his bent leg and kneed him right in the balls. Then the kid, turned around, ran away, this time screaming a little higher on the way out then he did on the way in.
So the moral of the story is be careful which reporter’s liveshot you crash unless you want something of yours crashed.
