Default Reporter Fights wind 2 Guys Stroll Leisurely By

This is funny, I hope it hasn't been posted before.
The Weather Channel reporter fakes fighting the wind while two guys stroll by in the background with no problem fighting the wind.

And he is not even facing or bracing into the wind, but rather with the breeze. What an Idiot.

I believe some of you have it all wrong. This is likely the only time the mainstream media has embellished. All the Russia stuff, all the global warming stuff, all the published demographic numbers of the people here, all the alibi stuff when liberals screw up, etc., etc., etc. ...all that is true.


That video proves what the media KNOWS about it's target audience.

That's funny and I'm sure faking it happens more often than not. I saw one "reporter" holding onto a parking lot chain, for no good reason, while telling us people should not be out in the storm and another holding onto a sign as they gave their breathless account of the storm. Such BS.

If they're going to fake it why can't they use a welded chain or a bent crowbar to show how fierce the wind is?

Agreed

Guy is a little bitch anyway, used to on one of our local stations several years ago.

Poor media is so disappointed this damn storm did not hit as Cat 4 or 5.

Russia Times?

Did anyone see this live? I was looking for an original link and could only find it on bot and secondary sites. Here it is from Russian Times. Maybe disinformation to help us distrust the media more?

But yea it is hilarious

The mainstream media is alot like yeti and Apple. Their product is an overhyped POS.

...but they know the sheep will buy any snake oil they sell.

.....even if it's just for "gifts"

Those two walking around are aliens; wind doesn't affect them much.

"It was a really big tree that hit a really important power line" - comment this morning by "in the field reporter" on NC power outages while camera panned a tree over a power line.

I have to remember that phrase the next time there is a power outage.

It's not news - it's "media"
