What should live correspondents do when they can't get their earpiece to work? Curse. F-bombs are particularly effective.
That's what ClickOnDetroit's Lauren Podell did during a newscast this morning about a fire investigation. The show's anchors—who handled it all quite impressively—threw it to Powell, and instead of getting an update, they got, "I can't get this f—king in there," she said as the cameras rolled.
Eek. Podell was so upset, she forgot the intended subject for her curse word.
I love live TV. The anchors are deadpan, but how I desperately wish we could see their post f-bomb reaction.
