The Best News Video Since NBC's Exploding Trucks

Oh my god. This couldn't have been done better in a movie. Just go watch the video.

Way to go NBC. Way to uphold those journalistic standards.

From NewsBusters:
Today's timing couldn't have been worse. A preceding segment focused on the incessant rains and ensuing flooding in the northeast. For days now, beautiful, blonde - and one senses highly ambitious - young reporter Michelle Kosinski has been on the scene for Today in New Jersey, working the story. In an apparent effort to draw attention to herself, in yesterday's segment she turned up in hip waders, standing thigh-deep in the flood waters.

Taking her act one step further, this morning she appeared on a suburban street . . . paddling a canoe. There was one small problem. Just as the segment came on the air, two men waded in front of Kosinki . . . and the water barely covered their shoe tops! That's right, Kosinski's canoe was in no more than four to six inches of water!

Big thanks to Dave at Garfield Ridge for pointing out this stuff. The guy is killing me today.
