News Reporting Fails: The Funniest Moments Caught on Camera
Turning on the 6:00 news, we’re usually treated to a routine in professionalism that is largely unrivaled. Reporting the news isn’t easy to do, but somehow newscasters get through the broadcast without incident. Well, not all the time. Reporting live lends itself to the eventual slip-up or blooper. From crazy weather to random pedestrians looking for their three seconds on live TV to seemingly harmless inanimate objects that somehow make their way into the report, you have the perfect recipe for the ultimate news reporting fails.
Check out this hilarious collection of news reporting fails, and relive these funny moments as they happened live on television.
Hey, when you have an audience, you have to take your opportunity at stardom. Well, at least internet stardom!

If you’re not wearing a belt with your suit, you deserve to get pantsed.
We Hope She's Alright
Nice tackle! We’re going to need an ice pack over here. … And the ref could care less. “Touchdown!”

Up, up, and a …… fail!
Pretty Sure This Is Just a Ratings Ploy
Does anybody know why a weatherwoman would need to do jumping jacks on air? Not that we’re complaining.
This Is Definitely a Ratings Ploy!
This one is actually a win for giving this kitty some cuddles. Who wouldn’t tune in for weather cats?

What’s that old saying, “Don’t report and walk at the same time?”
First on the Scene!
At least this reporter will be able to claim he was first on the scene of this accident!
'Um, We'll Be Right Back'
The look on the station reporter’s face is priceless.

Well, someone clearly went a little overboard during their boozy brunch.
My God, She's See-Through!
When KTLA’s Liberté Chan wore a lightly colored dress on air for her morning weather report, she didn’t realize it would blend in with the green screen behind her. Not sure why the other reporter is running over with his coat. She’s not naked, dude.
