The whole point of broadcasting news might be to inform people of the most urgent news stories out there, but humorously, coverage usually tumbles agressively downhill when there’s actual breaking news. When there’s time to run through the script and iron out every segment, all typically flows by smoothly, but when there’s a true emergency and the reporters are out in the field, the chance for weirdness rises exponentially. You never know what you're going to get with the mystery box.
Thus, it should come as no shock to anyone that Hurricane Sandy fouled up her share of broadcasts over the past few days. From the Hurricane Horse to numerous people dancing in the background of shots, there were quite a few hiccups. Luckily, some Internet geniuses compiled all of the best live fails into one handy to watch video, which you can enjoy below…
There are a few hilarious moments in that montage, but on the whole, news coverage was actually wonderful throughout Hurricane Sandy. Many reporters risked their lives to bring us the most accurate, up to date coverage possible, and their efforts should be applauded. They’re the reason the rest of us were able to stay inside, and it should be known that when we watch footage like this, we’re laughing with them, as opposed to at them.
