Reporter tries to fake sandstorm and gets caught on camera

Posted on May 24, 2012 by

Oh, the lengths reporters go to sometimes to sensationalize a story. A Romanian reporter from Realitatea news channel was caught on live TV during a weather report recreating the poor weather conditions on Romania’s Black Sea.

According to Wotshappening.com the reporter says: “The wind blows with incredible power, there are moments when it is impossible to stand up here.”

But when the cameraman pans to the side, you can clearly see someone kicking sand in the air. The station claims it was just a bad joke and commenters on YouTube who could translate, say they were only kicking the sand in the air to show how strong the winds were blowing. Unfortunately we can’t translate for you but I’m sure they had the best intentions.
