Video: Best news bloopers of 2011

posted at 1:15 pm on December 30, 2011 by Tina Korbe

In the spirit of ESPN’s “Not Top 10″ and other lists of not the best but worst moments of the year, I bring you this amusing collection of ironically awful moments in local news. It’s hard to say which one should be ranked No. 1, but my votes go to either (a) the supposedly sweet-tempered rottweiler that just loses it (at about 0:13) or (b) the news reporter who just can’t seem to get a grip as she looks around an empty seating area with a terrified expression (at about 4:15). I definitely enjoyed laughing at the expense of the folks in this video, but, if my first national TV appearance taught me anything, it’s that, on live TV, anything can happen — and, if you can’t laugh about unexpected mistakes, what can you laugh at? It’s one of the most glorious facts of our humanity: No matter how far we come, we’re still flawed. Ain’t it great?

Nope. Here’s the winner.

Gregor on December 30, 2011 at 1:20 PM

Ah, the sweetness is overwhelming. Just the whole notion that these people are the guardians of anything makes me smile.

platypus on December 30, 2011 at 1:21 PM

I swear I thought that was Maxine Waters at 4:00 mark.

Roymunson on December 30, 2011 at 1:23 PM

Resist we much.

50sGuy on December 30, 2011 at 1:24 PM

It has nothing to do with this category but it certainly lives up to its caption.

The pass gas one was the funniest.

gophergirl on December 30, 2011 at 1:26 PM

ROFLMAO at Joyce Evans turning into Florence from “The Jeffersons” at the very end.

Tuning Spork on December 30, 2011 at 1:27 PM

One thing that money can’t buy is your mama, she’s for free and everybody knows it.

Norky on December 30, 2011 at 1:28 PM

A lot of this is definitely not from 2011… but it’s still kinda fun.

Red Cloud on December 30, 2011 at 1:29 PM

Oh, I’m sorry for the little dog that got hurt and I sure hope the older dog still finds a home. :(

Bishop on December 30, 2011 at 1:19 PM

Yup – that’s a winner – “more ___ than he can handle”.
Also like the “congratulations on your big hooters..”

dentarthurdent on December 30, 2011 at 1:30 PM

The 3:00 mark made me gasp for air I was laughing so hard.

Fallon on December 30, 2011 at 1:31 PM

Norky on December 30, 2011 at 1:28 PM

Where t f did THAT come from? Some scamp took liberties writing the cue cards?

Paul-Cincy on December 30, 2011 at 1:31 PM

Nope. Here’s the winner.

Gregor on December 30, 2011 at 1:20 PM

I was amused. I was aroused. Good times were had by all.

Norky on December 30, 2011 at 1:28 PM

That one was awesome, and so was the guy who had more ***** than he knew what to do with.

Darksean on December 30, 2011 at 1:31 PM

Though perhaps the best one of all time is “Keep F%$#ing that chicken!”

Darksean on December 30, 2011 at 1:32 PM

Are you friggin’ kidding me…….”more p#ssy than he can handle”??

Who wouldn’t know what that could mean?

Hilarious!

Tim_CA on December 30, 2011 at 1:33 PM

My favorites are…

F*ck it, I’m getting out of this joint.

swamp_yankee on December 30, 2011 at 1:35 PM

The hooter one was awesome too.

Do you think they started dating?? :D

Darksean on December 30, 2011 at 1:37 PM

Tim_CA on December 30, 2011 at 1:33 PM

I was thinking the same thing. She wasn’t even aware that she made a blooper. How culturally isolated must be to not even grasp the double entendre.

swamp_yankee on December 30, 2011 at 1:38 PM

Hooters one was good because you know there were so many awkward moments after that, or they just had office sex.

The black female reporter who couldnt hear anything made me laugh because I have no freaking idea what she was doing.

swamp_yankee on December 30, 2011 at 1:40 PM

I don’t know how Kathleen Corso could say that with a straight face! (More pussy than he could handle).

celtic warrior on December 30, 2011 at 1:43 PM

Was “keep ****ing that chicken” considered?

JohnTant on December 30, 2011 at 1:44 PM

THE NOISE!!

angryed on December 30, 2011 at 1:45 PM

5:10 – “And Erin congratulations on your big hooters.”

kit dinker on December 30, 2011 at 1:46 PM

3:48 – that poor guy just pooched whatever he was trying to report and his reaction was priceless. Anyone who’s done live theater/tv/performance can relate to that emotion.

Rufus on December 30, 2011 at 1:49 PM

Those are not all 2011, you can tell by the hair.

Fiona Gorostiza from Fox 4 here made that clip. She was eating while they turned on the cameras to her. Good Day Dallas pulls a lot of jokes on each other.

jeffn21 on December 30, 2011 at 1:49 PM

The anchor’s expression at 3:42 after the reporters outburst is priceless.

BakerAllie on December 30, 2011 at 1:49 PM

Was “keep ****ing that chicken” considered?

JohnTant on December 30, 2011 at 1:44 PM

I’m pretty sure that was 2009 or 2010.

lorien1973 on December 30, 2011 at 1:51 PM

I was hoping this would make it….

angryed on December 30, 2011 at 1:53 PM

I like what that guy said during target practice!

tinkerthinker on December 30, 2011 at 1:58 PM

They were all pretty darn funny. My favorites were the “more ____ than he can handle”, the gas story, and the “hooters” one.

Torch on December 30, 2011 at 1:59 PM

Some of this footage looks like it’s from 1993. Is that really what the Midwest is like?

3.14159 on December 30, 2011 at 2:02 PM

5:10 – “And Erin congratulations on your big hooters.”

kit dinker on December 30, 2011 at 1:46 PM

No, no…it was worse. Congratulations on your fake hooters. Classic.

Jaibones on December 30, 2011 at 2:04 PM

Around 3:25 is a local station to me, I loved it when the on the scene reporter threw his papers to the ground. The AA woman reporting from a concert sound check had me in stitches with her expressions!

Mini-14 on December 30, 2011 at 2:04 PM

Thanks Ed. That was a hoot. TV newscasters say the darndest thing. :)

simkeith on December 30, 2011 at 2:04 PM

Oops, I meant Thanks Tina!

simkeith on December 30, 2011 at 2:05 PM

Gregor on December 30, 2011 at 1:20 PM

Damn…that was nasty.

NeoKong on December 30, 2011 at 2:09 PM

4:02-4:36

The noise.

MadisonConservative on December 30, 2011 at 2:09 PM

Oops, I meant Thanks Tina!
simkeith on December 30, 2011 at 2:05 PM

Well, at least you didn’t slip up and offer her congratulations.

“Now … Blam, Blam, Blam, Blam, Blam! … here at the range.”

And Ann on Fox News lip-synching the news because the idiots put her on camera. Both awesome.

Jaibones on December 30, 2011 at 2:15 PM

lorien1973 on December 30, 2011 at 1:51 PM

Yeah, that’s an old classic, like the anchorwomen who got a case of the giggles while reading a story about a horrific murder.

whatcat on December 30, 2011 at 2:21 PM

Hahahaha

Conservchik on December 30, 2011 at 2:24 PM

I’m glad most of them seem to have a sense of humor…except for that last one. What??

bluealice on December 30, 2011 at 2:30 PM

No bloopers…

… but some of the best video evaaaahhhhh!

Seven Percent Solution on December 30, 2011 at 2:31 PM

some of those are obviously not in 2011.

Kaptain Amerika on December 30, 2011 at 2:33 PM

I’d much rather watch this video here then at “The Blaze.”

Gatekeeper on December 30, 2011 at 2:38 PM

I am sorry but I could not even finish watching that. All I could think of was that poor puppy crying in pain when that Rottweiler was biting it. What on earth would make people think that funny. Does anyone know if the puppy is alright?

Calypso on December 30, 2011 at 2:43 PM

On the last one, I’m impressed with her use of multiple dialects.

hoofhearted on December 30, 2011 at 2:46 PM

Some of those hairstyles are clearly pre-2011.

Calypso on December 30, 2011 at 2:43 PM

I agree. The stupid woman tells everyone how the Rottie was kept caged and it’s hot and then she doesn’t notice the dog is fixated on the other one. People like her have no business around animals except to join them in a cage. No it wasn’t funny at all. Ignorant but not funny.

Deanna on December 30, 2011 at 3:05 PM

C’mon, Tina. You were great on your first appearance.

John the Libertarian on December 30, 2011 at 3:23 PM

“Assault charges after he passed gas of odorous and created contact of an insulting or provoking nature.”

I’m going to have to borrow that one…

Seven Percent Solution on December 30, 2011 at 3:24 PM

I always wondered how news people felt about interviewing trash like the Kardashians…

nextgen_repub on December 30, 2011 at 3:38 PM

Nope. Here’s the winner.

Gregor on December 30, 2011 at 1:20 PM

Brutally brutal.

White pants too…lol

rightConcept on December 30, 2011 at 3:42 PM

I’m going to have to borrow that one…

Seven Percent Solution on December 30, 2011 at 3:24 PM

Citizens arrest, citizens arrest!

tinkerthinker on December 30, 2011 at 3:57 PM

Before the anchorette did the lip-syncing, I thought the one at 1:16 had to do with the weather guy fanning himself with a folder as if he pulled a Whoopi.

L.N. Smithee on December 30, 2011 at 4:59 PM

I was thinking the same thing. She wasn’t even aware that she made a blooper. How culturally isolated must be to not even grasp the double entendre.

swamp_yankee on December 30, 2011 at 1:38 PM

For the ultimate example of that, watch this clip. But one shouldn’t criticize this sweet young lady for not getting it.

L.N. Smithee on December 30, 2011 at 5:35 PM

My fav was the last one ! The way the reporters voice changed from very prim and proper to ghetto when she thought she was off camera.

KenInIL on December 31, 2011 at 12:17 AM

Faced with unscripted moments, MSM liberals, show their real side. Some are really funny, some have their minds in gutter, others just don’t have a clue, while many do not have enough sense to come in out of the weather.

Calypso on December 30, 2011 at 2:43 PM

Agreed 100% I have a toy poodle and my heart just went out to that poor puppy. Not funny at all.
