Turns out January was a big month for news bloopers. Now, instead of making a blunder on live TV and waiting for the fuss to die down, those horrendous mistakes will live on forever courtesy of YouTube. Then if you’re so lucky, you’ll find an entire monthly compilation floating around online. NewsBeFunny included everything from that reporter getting crushed by a footballer to that Irish newscaster who applied makeup on live TV.
It’s here! The very best news bloopers of the year courtesy of NewsBeFunny. Some of our faves made the list, including that jogger who wore the horse mask during Hurricane Sandy, Tom Hank’s f-bomb and the reporter who made that poor little baby cry (see gif below).
This is only part four of the supercut, which means there were a heluva lot of mistakes this year. Previously, we saw Sweet Brown and shenanigans with green screens.

Hurricane Sandy brought out its fair share of people who were “under the weather” on national television. Being cooped up indoors all day can understandably make people go a little stir crazy. That’s why CompilarizTV pulled together some of the best bloopers from the hurricane — though I don’t really consider them bloopers at all. Kudos to the dude at the end who recommends you prep with Scotch and cigarettes. That’s real journalism right there.

Al Roker seemed to have a moment on The Today Show this morning after his co-host Savannah Guthrie demonstrated how high school students awkwardly dance far apart at co-ed shindigs. She grabbed Matt Lauer and slow danced shoulder-width apart, explaining: ”Like they say in Catholic school, leave room for the Holy Ghost.”
That’s when Al Roker made an awesome face and held it FOREVER. How long can he hold the same face? And what was he thinking? Points for whoever writes the perfect thought caption.

We’ve seen most of these news bloopers on the site already but there’s nothing like watching them all strung together in one go. Some of them are funny, sad or embarrassing but all of them are difficult to watch.
Making a blooper online is difficult but at least you can delete it after…. when it’s live on air it’s with you FOREVER.
