Believe it or not, TV news is still a thing. No, seriously. Local television networks across the country regularly broadcast reports covering all sorts of events. Of course, you don’t watch them because you have a smartphone and you know about everything these local stations cover long before their reports ever air. How? You get your news from the internet, so you know about things when they happen.
Of course, being stuck in the past isn’t always a bad thing. After all, you won’t see bloopers like this while you’re reading the news in your Twitter feed — or even while you’re reading the fake news in your Facebook feed.
Live local TV is great because there’s no safety net. If something goes wrong — and things often do go wrong — mistakes air for all the world to see. Well, it’s far more likely that only a handful of people are actually watching a local news station at any given time. These wonderful bloopers live on forever on the internet though, and YouTube channel “News Be Funny Videos” loves nothing more than to collect them and share them with its subscribers.
On Wednesday, the YouTubers behind News Be Funny Videos posted a roundup of all of their favorite news bloopers that aired last month. The December roundup definitely has a few gems in it, like that time an anchor lost control of an electric scooter and destroyed Good Day LA’s set. And as is always the case with local newscasters, you can expect plenty of uncontrollable laughter to break out when sexual innuendo works its way into a report. Oh, those crazy newsies…
The full 11+ minute roundup of December’s best news bloopers is embedded below.
