As a news reporter, you never want to be the story. But sometimes, your live broadcast doesn’t go exactly according to plan. Whether it’s extreme weather – or just idiots in the back of your shot looking to get famous on television – the news can quickly turn into a (thoroughly unplanned) comedy hour. Of course nothing was worse than Megyn Kelly skincare NBC slip up than ended up being the reason she left!
She Knew What She Was Doing…
Is Anyone A Professional Lip Reader?This classic wardrobe malfunction could be seen on late night Red Eye on the Fox News Channel.
This Cameraman captured the perfect blooper fail on live television. This female reporter was showing viewers the pretty solid sized fish they caught, and well, Murphy’s Law struck again. The reporter seemed to have no idea the fish was still alive and moving and dropped it as soon and she saw it shake. She was so terrified by it, she steps backwards and trips and the fisherman had the best day of his life. The cameraman along with the viewers were in for a 3 second show at that point. Thank you Live Television.
Dude, check out my sweet sk8r moves, dude!In any other circumstance, this would be a perfectly planned live shot: panning from a dynamic skater riding through the park to a young reporter covering the event. Unfortunately, Mike Amor became part of the story when the skate trick went awry and the skater’s board went flying in his direction. You wish you could watch this gif in slow motion, if for no other reason than to shout “noo!” as a word of warning to Amor.
This Little Piggy…
Do not call women pigs, especially on live TV. OTS stands for the over-the-shoulder graphics that pop up next to anchors in the newsroom. Depending on the camera being used in the studio, the OTS is programmed to automatically show up on the part of the screen where you don’t see an actual person. Someone didn’t explain this to the tech director at one local news station, so a photo of a pig showed up in place of the face of the female anchor reading the story. Women don’t want to be compared to animals in general, but this is an especially low blow.
Idiot Tries to Ruin the Broadcast
This weather reporter dodges an idiot storm while reporting on an actual storm.Weather reporters go through hell as it is. Any time there’s an extreme storm on the way, they’re put outside in a giant raincoat while the producer – safe in the newsroom – hopes they get blown over by wind or rain because it makes for great TV. The last thing they want to deal with is some loser trying to video-bomb their shot, or what looks like maybe worse. This South Carolina reporter has deflection down to a science. He anticipates the prankster from a few feet away and gets his knee ready for impact. He gives the guy a well-deserved butt kicking.
Purple Peeny Weeny Wet Wille
Remember when you used to get drunk with your friends and the first person to pass out would get a penis drawn on his forehead? This is basically the live TV version of that prank.This poor sports reporter was just trying to cover the latest soccer news when some fans in the background decided to get a little, well, frisky. I’m not sure why someone was carrying around a big purple vibrator at the time, but apparently he thought the best way to use it was to try and give the reporter a truly terrifying wet willie. Props to the reporter for not letting the prank break his concentration. Luckily, security was nearby to stop the stunt quickly.
Revealing It All….Well Damn Near
Her name is Laila Abid, and she is a Moroccan-Dutch news anchor, journalists, and presenter.It’s a bit hard to tell whether this amazing news anchor knew whether her chest was as exposed as possible (without being NSFW) or not, but I guarantee the News viewers didn’t care. The gut feeling is that she definitely knew what she was wearing and did so on purpose, which makes it even better. Her name is Laila Abid, and she is a Moroccan-Dutch news anchor, journalists, and presenter.
The Erykah Badu Push Aside
Do you have any idea who you just pushed aside? Well, singer-songwriter Erykah Badu, that’s who!Erykah Badu may already be famous, but that doesn’t mean she can’t still have a little fun on camera. Unfortunately, this TV news anchor wasn’t in on the fun. Granted, she already executes a near-perfect smiling video bomb before trying to take it up a notch my giving the reporter a hug – and possibly a kiss on the cheek. But he pushes her away like she’s just some crazy person on the street! Hey guy, Erykah Badu is probably more famous than you. Show a little respect!
A Fun Day At The Park
What Is She Hiding?
This live News room blooper still has the world wondering what this news reporter was looking at and then hiding between her legs. It is weird enough that she would be lifting up her dress to look in between her legs in a public setting in general… Anyone have any idea what is going on here?
As a news reporter, you never want to be the story. But sometimes, your live broadcast doesn’t go exactly according to plan and quickly turn into a (thoroughly unplanned) comedy hour. Here are some of the best news bloopers ever caught on camera.
Sometimes, the background is the best part of a funny news blooper.I’ll give credit where credit is due; the woman reporting this story is doing a solid stand up for what looks like an otherwise boring story. Luckily for her, and for viewers everywhere, her story gets a lot more interesting thanks to a bicyclist who doesn’t quite seem to have mastered the concept of the sidewalk. I would tell the guy “chin up,” but he’s already chin down in the concrete. That has to hurt.
A Superhero Fail
Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is here, rescuing news reporters in need!Spider Man, Spider Man.
Why does Tucker Carlon's face seem to freeze every now and then in this bewildered, confused position? One can assume it takes a little while for the wheels in his head to comprehend what his guest are talking about, and what we're looking at is good ole' Tucker's loading screen.
Not So Sneaky
Good technical directors are neither seen nor heard. This guy is a bad technical director.Apparently, the man in the background didn’t realize the cameras had already started rolling while he was in the studio. So what’s a stunned, camera-shy technical director to do? Stop, drop and… out of there as quickly as possible. Too bad his escape is far from subtle. Luckily, the anchor doesn’t make a big deal about it and continues right on with the story. Too bad nobody’s paying attention to him at this point.

Debate Gone Bad
Who expected three old guys to turn a boring news talk show into a WWE showdown?This isn’t so much a news blooper as it is an unorthodox way to make dry political talk very, very interesting. This clip leaves you with more questions than answers. What could possibly make these three old men so angry? Why was that studio desk so cheap in the first place? Seriously, it came apart faster than my resolve while assembling similar furniture from Ikea. Most importantly, who won the fight? I think we have an answer to that final question: When old geezers fight, the internet wins.
