Journalist Fail! Watch What This Sportscaster Fakes on Live TV


It’s hard to feel sorry for TV presenters. After all, they are smug, liberal, elitists who spend their days spouting vapid nonsense in front of a camera.

Poor old Chris got found out. But don’t worry. It’s not the first┬átime a journalist has been found faking. And there’s no shortage of clips showcasing the mistakes made by presenters when they think the camera has stopped rolling.
