Another TV Live Shot Goes Horribly, Hilariously Wrong

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Wed, Nov 13, 2013 at 2:14 PM

Local news stations use live shots like Mayor Rob Ford uses crack cocaine: (allegedly) A LOT! They seem to think it makes them look more "involved" in a story, when in actuality they're usually just in the dark standing next to an empty lot where nothing is happening. (HEY NEWS STATIONS! THAT MAKES YOU LOOK LATE TO THE STORY.)

Anyway, the good thing about live shots is that they often go terribly, hilariously wrong—providing viewers with countless hours of laughter... as in this case where a Detroit reporter drops the mother of F-words live on-air. Sooooo... thanks live shots! Never, ever stop.
