Best News Bloopers [WATCH VIDEO]
Philippine Sea (June 22, 2006) – USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) Commanding Officer, Capt. Terry Kraft addresses Nimitz-class aircraft carrier crew during a live broadcast of “Captain’s Call” in the television studio during Exercise Valiant Shield 2006. Valiant Shield focuses on integrated joint training among U.S. military forces, enabling real-world proficiency in sustaining joint forces and in detecting, locating, tracking and engaging units at sea, in the air, on land and cyberspace in response to a range of mission areas.

Delivering the news is serious business. That’s why we love some newsroom boo boos.

The memorable moments on TV are the ones that are found on the evening’s headlines. That is definitely the situation in the video below. This is basically a mash-up of a variety of people delivering the news while dealing with something unexpected like earthquakes, Freudian slips and other on-air faux pas.

It’s safe to say that everyone is fan of live news bloopers, and the video below is just one of the many out there. There are other videos which featuredreporters quitting their job on air. Another is where singer Erykah Badu interrupts a news broadcast, and a news anchor drops an “f” bomb. But even if these videos have raked up a lot of views on YouTube, there’s still plenty of funny live TV moments to consume.

News bloopers come in different forms. There are celebrity guests saying foul-mouthed things live on morning TV, and random people wanting to be on the news so they jump on to the camera frame and, for more effect, in costume. These videos are a good blend of different types of funny incidents and flubs, may it be on local news channel or on a live national broadcast, coupled with some foreign clips, will definitely make the viewers think about how difficult it is to produce a news broadcast live.
