I'll talk to you on Monday! 

Good Luck!

Carly

NEWS BLOOPERS
Hilarious Moments In Broadcast News...

Retail Price: $9.99 
Deal Price: $2.99 

The straight faced seriousness of news reporters is a facade 
that occasionally slips live on air, often with hilarious 
results. This collection gathers together some of those 
moments, offering a series of clips where things haven't quite 
gone according to plan. Mishaps range from on-air bloopers, 
cameras going astray, non-stop giggling at inappropriate times, 
bizarre tongue-tied newscasters, and a whole lot more.
