Even though they are torn apart week after week by serious pundits and comic news anchors alike, it’s easy to forget just how many times someone messed up on camera during a newscast in 2014. The mere category of “best news bloopers of 2014″ includes such a diverse set of on-air drama that it’s hard to classify this video as solely embarrassment; it seems more like a play-by-play of the hazards that broadcast journalists face on the job. After all, who else gets caught on film reacting to an set-shaking earthquake, or getting hit in the head by a skateboarder while in the middle of taping a stand-up?
Of course, not all of the news bloopers deemed the best of 2014 involve such heroic circumstances for their subjects. Some of them are just the typical visual graphic errors that put a pig snout over the anchor’s head like the one pictured above, or even worse accidentally mispronouncing a clean word as a dirty one.
Do you think the compilation missed any of the best news bloopers of 2014?
