I understand that journalism needs to be “sensationalist” in this day and age, but it’s very rare that those in the media are ever called out for their overhyping of a story. Fortunately, we have this video of a correspondent on Today getting caught in her own foolishness.
She’s reporting on a flood, live from a canoe, naturally, when some rescue works seemingly perform a miracle, walking right on the water in front of her. It’s so absurd that even Matt Lauer has to say something about it, and she kind of laughs but claims the waters were actually high, though clearly her canoe is bottoming out as she’s saying that.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
