Earlier this year, Daniel Radcliffe made it cool (sort of) for white people to attempt Gift of Gab's tongue-twisting recital from "Alphabet Aerobics" with his performance on the Tonight Show. The trend continues down in Odessa, Tex., where local reporter Kim Powell warmed up for a live shot by reporting the breaking news that artificial amateurs aren't at all amazing.
Sam Rubin, one of the morning anchors at KTLA 5 in Los Angeles, was in the middle of a self-deprecating story about the time his wife asked him, "When did you become the fat one on that show?" when a reporter had to cut in to deliver a breaking totally sick burn.
Being a good reporter often means pissing off the very person you're attempting to interview—you try to keep it civil, but sometimes, the situation spirals out of your control. When an establishment menace in a festive outfit attempted to silence a New Hampshire TV journalist last night, he handled it like a pro.
Ever since TV meteorologists gained the power to draw on their digital maps, they've been inadvertently—and sometimes intentionally—drawing dicks. Jimmy Kimmel finally caught onto this long-running phenomenon and assigned a staffer to cover the rapidly expanding weatherdick beat.
While the rest of us spend all our time worrying about being "cool," some people out there are just living their damn lives.
Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader are making the promo rounds for their new film The Skeleton Twins, which recently brought them in front of Denver entertainment reporter Chris Parente. Though he gave it his best shot, poor old Parente just could not pull off pretending he'd actually seen the movie.
Apparently, Pennsylvania news station WNEP had its coverage of the Wayne County Fair hijacked by 5-year-old Noah Ritter, apparently of Wilkes-Barre. Apparently, Noah has never been on live TV before, if you can believe that, but apparently he gets to watch TV after his grandpa watches the powerball.
"Wow, you're super pretty. Wanna go on a date sometime?" said a man, walking around with no shirt on, to a woman, who was reporting live today from the site of a wildfire east of Los Angeles. All men must die.
After six Houston teens broke into a house, using a basketball to break a window, local news station KPRC aired an interview with the heroic neighbor who saw them and called police. The witness wanted to remain anonymous, so the station pointed the camera away from her face—and now she's probably wishing they hadn't.
A local news station decided to add some cute to its Easter coverage by bringing in a pair of bunnies to do what they do best: delivering eggs and candy and bringing joy to children. Just kidding! Fucking.
Not in the sense that what happens locally has national ramifications, but in the sense that every local news station around the country is reporting the exact same story. Line for line.
