Brad Wills was reporting on the hot weather at the beach for Fox 5 in San Diego, when a huge bug decided that he wanted to be interviewed about it by the meteorologist. Only problem is Wills was afraid of the big unidentified flying object. So much so, he hit notes that only a man who has been stung down there can hit.
And that is why you rarely see weathermen outside in the field.
KTLA‘s Courtney Friel was reporting live about the first day of of school for LAUSD students yesterday and she asked the cute little kids if they were excited to go to school. When she got to interviewing 4 year old Andrew Macias if he was going to miss mom during his first day of Pre-K, at first he laughed and then he cried. When he starts to tear up, you just want to give him a hug; but that is not what the reporter did. Instead, she included it in her package and apologized at the end of her liveshot. She said as a mom, she can understand what he is going through, but does she really. She made a sweet innocent little boy cry just before he is about to start school for the first time. How mean is that? She is a big old meanie.
But I am sure it will all work out for Andrew because Ellen DeGeneres probably had her people call his people to book him on the show next month. But still, poor Andrew.
At this point, the only people who aren’t sick of The Kardashians are The Kardashians. Fox 35’s John Brown is so fed up with them; that when the Entertainment Reporter was going to tell a story about them, he got up and walked out. He refused to come back to the couch until they were done with the segment.
Personally, I can’t blame him because I am sick of them too. Maybe if more news show, magazines and blogs (yes I am guilty of it too) took this stand, they would go away like Speidi did. So who’s ready to do it? No more Kardashians!
9News’ Karl Stefanovic Tweeted, “If clarkey doesn’t get a hundred I’m gear off on the show tomorrow. Woohoo. Positives for everyone. What.” Well he didn’t do it, so that meant he had to take it all off on Today and run across the set live on air. Being a man of his word, he did it. And no one called in complained. Why would they?
Too bad, Matt Lauer and Al Roker don’t have the balls to do that because I would like to see them lost that bet!
Cara Delevigne is doing press for her movie Paper Towns and that means talking to local stations. One of those interviews was for KMAX‘s Good Day Sacramento. The interview started off rocky when one of the anchors asked her if she read the book that the film is based on. She tried to have some fun with them and said that she hadn’t. It was obvious she was being sarcastic with them, but they didn’t get it. The chat didn’t get any better, so one of the other anchors called her out on her attitude. He said you seemed more lively when you were doing press for the film in England. She explained the premiere was the night before and it was early in the morning where she was. So the anchor told her to take a nap and drink a red bull.
As someone who worked in news and conducted several of these satellite interviews, I normally side with the news people. This time I side with the actress. She’s in a room talking to a camera, which is awkward enough; but then you throw in stupid questions and you might not be the warmest of people. I think Good Day Sacramento is at fault for the bad interview. Who do you think was at fault for that awkward situation?
via FTV Live KTVN was reporting on the fact that Amazon is now worth more than Walmart and anchor John Potter has his theory why. He says his “friend” who works in the factory told him it is because they sell a lot of sex toys and Walmart doesn’t sell any. It wasn’t only that he expressed his theory, it was that he kept saying it over and over again. So it has to make you wonder if really has a friend who works in the factory or that is where he gets his supply of adult toys? I am thinking it’s the latter because that is just how my mind works. What do you think?
BBC Newsline’s Northern Irelandâ€™s Agriculture and Environment Correspondent, Conor Macauley, was sharing his liveshot with a cute lamb named Button, when she decided it was time for a bathroom break. So as he kneeled down, down went her urine all over him. He tried to hold him composure as best as he could, but eventually he had to laugh it off. If only the mark that Button left on him would have come off as easily.
Guess who is getting a sheep skinned rug for Christmas? Joking!
Last weekend, someone at Fox and Friends thought it would be a good idea to give co-host Pete Hegseth an axe and they were highly mistaken. He swung the ax and completely missed the bullseye. In fact it flew over the board and hit one of the drummers from West Point’s Hellcats, who was performing behind it, on the arm. The drummer was in so much pain, he had to walk away. No word if he will ever be able to beat it again. The drum I mean.
When it comes to the bullseye, I bet he would have hit had it had President Obama’s face on it. I would ask the Little Drummer Boy to give me a bah da bump, but like I said, I am not sure if ever will be able to play the skins again.
Poor Little Drummer Boy, what are we going to do when it is Christmas? Fox News ruined Christmas.
After 5 months, Brian Williams finally broke his silence about his scandal on Today this morning, and you can tell he has been humbled by the experience. Not only is he humbled, but he has aged. His eyes are puffier and there are a few more wrinkles around them.
Now, that he is apologized and owned up this mistakes, let’s move on. What he did is not as bad as some of you have made it out to be. Have you ever embellished a story? That’s what he did. He didn’t hurt anyone. He didn’t commit any crimes. He just exaggerated. In the world of news, that really isn’t that bad.
At least is likable and can interview people, which is more than I can say for the person who was interviewing him.
After 5 months of waiting to find out if Brian Williams would return to NBC Nightly News as an anchor after his suspension, NBC News finally made their decision. Williams will now be MSNBC’s anchor of breaking news and special reports, and Lester Holt will take over NBC Nightly News.
I think this is NBC News way of trying to improve MSNBC’s ratings. The news network needs help and he is the man to do it until his contract is up. Then he will be free to get a better job at a better place.
Now here is my take on the whole situation, I think is complete BS. Williams exaggerated some stories, but who did he hurt? Did you know reporters lie to us all the time. They go to the beach to cover a hurricane because the winds are stronger there and that makes better television. That is just one example, and you don’t see them getting fired. And in this day, there are anchors out there who are biased and promote hate, yet they still have their jobs. I think that is so much worse than what Williams did.
So to all of you people who insisted on Williams being fired, think of that. Would you rather have a news anchor who preaches hate or someone who lied a little? I prefer the latter.
