Woman Gives Bizarre News Interview
Well, the police wouldn't let me go through 122nd so I had to go around 119th and they let me look at the lawyer's building — I know the vacuum cleaner man. He's seen my tits," says this crazy woman. She then asks the news crew if they too would like to see her "tits." Only in Portland.
News Confuses Sex Toy For Mushroom
When you're an investigative TV news program you probably don't want to get your facts wrong and become a laughing stock by airing a report about a strange mushroom that's appeared in the rural part of the city. A mushroom that is in fact, a sex toy. Oh lulz.
Best News Bloopers Of 2012
The news, when it's not featuring pieces about economic armageddon and the imminent collapse of Europe or tyrannical leaders murdering citizens in cold blood, it sure does have some funny out takes.
Daniel Simonsen on Good News
A comedian without any actual jokes is a rare creature. Not only does this guy not have any jokes but he’s agonisingly awkward. Plus a thick Norwegian accent and you’d expect him to be terrible. Somehow though he’s totally hilarious.
Rap News 12 – Yes We Kony
The unstoppable, Kony 2012 video, which has highlighted the plight of African child soldiering like never before, but is it good, bad, painfully oversimplified, or praiseworthy for going viral without boobs or cats?
Cassetteboy vs The News
If only the news was this amusing every day, or the least they could do is have Cassetteboy edit the previous day’s headlines into mega-lulz and run it at the end of the programme.
WTF News Report
Probably the most refreshingly original news report you will ever see. This guy has obviously not been fully briefed on what it is he's meant to report and as a result the report is truly memorable.
Chinese News Reporter Screams
Sometimes you have to go the extra mile to get a good story. Sometimes. Either this reporter is terrified riding the slide or she is just practicing her Angry Bird impersonation?
Best Local News Bloopers of 2011
2011 is nearly over so what better time to reflect back on 365 days of fail from local news stations across the states. nothing goes wrong quite as spectacularly as when it's all being broadcast live.
News Anchor Fail Compilation 2011
The only way these news anchors could be any more incompetent is if Ron Burgundy rolled into shot high as a kite on whiskey smelling of sex panther and looking for some afternoon delight. In fact, that would definitely turn this from a fail to a win.
Pedobear on KRQE News
PEDOBEAR!!!! HE'S COMING! The monstrous cuddly little comic bear that has razed the internet is now coming offline and heading for your children! This is investigative reporting at its very best, give this news team a Pulitzer.
Fox News Throughout History
You can't beat great journalism, but it requires effort so much better to just go for the lowest common denominator and get your viewers by sensationalising everything. Just imagine if Fox News had existed throughout history, this is how they'd report it.
World’s Most Generic News Report
Good old Charlie Brooker, here he gives a spot on parody of lazy news editing, taken from his awesome TV shows Newswipe. He manages to inform, take the piss, all while using their own methods for ridiculing them.
Ultimate News Fail
Jesus, everyone involved in this giant cock-up needs to pack up and go home. They fail. At everything. It isn't just one thing that goes wrong, but a whole sequence of fail starts this broadcast off and then like dominoes the whole show just falls down from there.
Local News Arachnophobe
Jim, the weather guy doesn’t like spiders too much, so when a tarantula comes to the studio. And we all know the best way to deal with someone who’s afraid of anything is to come at them with it, until they run screaming from the studio. Win.
World's Most Embarassing News Blooper?
Time to crap yourselves laughing! We first saw this clip about 2 years ago and it suddenly started going around again this week. Can anyone think of another news blooper more embarrassing than this one?
The End Of News Of The World
We’ve seen the Murdochs and their adopted ginger hair-being sat in front of the Select Committee and now we finally know the truth! Well, we know Rupert Murdoch is pretty old and frail.
News of the World: Der Untergang
The News of the World hacking story has exploded like a giant pus throbbing with liquid revulsion. And now, the most popular newspaper in the solar system has chomped off its own rotten tail, like some ravenous toxic ouroboros.
Newsflash: News Drought
Yes, it was the day that nothing was happening anywhere in the world, so the news people had nothing to do but stand around and try to look like they weren’t just a waste of salary.
