Fake news in the mainstream

This is just sad. Just goes to show what the mainstream media's opinion of it's average viewer's intellect is, and what they would do to exaggerate things just to put the fear of God into them.

This was after the 2 weeks of constant rain we had here in the North-east.

From RealityTvWorld :

A TV news reporter got caught up a creek without a paddle while exaggerating the depth of flooding in New Jersey.

Michelle Kosinski appeared to be paddling a canoe while filing a report on the New Jersey floods for NBC's "Today" show Friday.

"It's really tough to control a canoe or a boat when you're out in it," she told New York hosts Matt Lauer and Katie Couric.

But while she was speaking, two men were seen in the camera shot walking in front of the reporter's canoe in ankle-deep water, the New York Daily News reported Saturday.

Both Lauer and Couric burst out laughing.

Lauer asked: "Are these holy men, perhaps walking on top of the water?"

A concerned Couric added: "Gee, is your oar hitting ground, Michelle?"

Video here. Watch it, it's fucking hilarious and retarded at the same time. (courtesy The Political Teen)
