Live Local News Is the Best

Live television is one of the Internet’s most precious resources, because human error so often works its way into the spotlight. In this video, the station cuts away from “Good Morning America” to provide live coverage of a bridge implosion scheduled for 7:00 a.m. But it doesn’t implode, so they banter while the camera stays fixed on the bridge. Then they kill some more time, then some more, and then a little more before finally cutting away to the weatherman and then AW DAMMIT!

It really is amazing the way they manage to screw it up. I guess the show’s producers can put “picture-in-picture technology” on their Christmas wish list.
