We can all admit that there is one animal out there that absolutely terrifies us. For me, it’s birds. Those beady eyes, the thought that they might come flying at you ready to attack or shit on your head at any moment, it’s all just too much for me. And apparently this australian reporter shares these sentiments.
In what appears to have supposed to been a harmless, fluffy segment on some type of farm and their animals, the reporter gets up close and personal with a rooster. However, the little guy seems to be having none of it and when he makes one wrong move, the reporter goes nuts and can’t get out of there fast enough. While I do understand the aversion to squawking spawns of satan, the 13-year-old girl scream was a little much.
Watch the video to see the hilarity ensue.
When it comes to reporting the big snowstorm, this reporter isn’t having any of it. Having stayed outside for a good five to six hours, she’s brutally honest in telling the anchors (who are inside a warm place, by the way), that she is tired and the snow sucks.
I don’t know if it is the cynic in me, but the applause the anchors gave the poor, cold woman seems a bit like a mockery. I guess it’s not the most professional environment, but at least they can all laugh at themselves.
Minnesota reporter Lee Valsvik took one for the team on live television when she was pummelled by a dude with a football. She was interviewing a restaurant mixologist for the KARE 11 Saturday show and asked him about playing football on the rooftap patio. He threw the football to a nearby friend who charged the reporter and accidentally (we’re hoping accidentally) tackled her. The last thing you hear? The reassuring ”I’M OKAY!”
A drunk woman, who bears a creepy resemblance to the Overly Attached Girlfriend, pulled a wicked videobomb during a live news report and the journalist handled the situation perfectly. She was reporting from the United States Grand Prix that took place in Austin TX over the weekend and when the woman snuck up behind her and stared into the camera, the reporter said: “Oh yeah, and of course, lots of people drinking down here. Can you tell?” [Source]
Some might see this as a reporter FAIL but I totally see it as a cameraman douche move. He panned out to the reporter while her coworker was still talking about the market. Bloomberg’s Sara Eisen was fixing her red dress when she realized she was actually on camera. She had to jump into her market report, but she was clearly caught off guard and stumbled over a couple of her words.
Of course, you should never fumble with your skirt while the camera’s rolling near you — lest you pull a Britney — but in this case, her microphone wasn’t working so she was trying to fix it.
Watch it here:
To give some context, Matt Damon was asked if teachers are only motivated by a fear of losing their jobs. Matt ripped the reporter a new one, along with the cameraman.
We can feel the tension and awkwardness in the air. However, his passion explains why he is such a great actor.
