Weatherman caught ‘faking’ battle to stay on his feet


The Sun has the story.

Quote:
Speaking as he fought to stay in shot, he whined: "This is about as nasty as it's been".

But viewers spotted the pair walking down a road behind him - seemingly unaffected by the wind.

The bizarre video racked up a million Facebook views in a matter of hours.

A spokesman for the Weather Channel said: “It’s important to note that the two individuals in the background are walking on concrete, and Mike Seidel is trying to maintain his footing on wet grass, after reporting on-air until 1am this morning and is undoubtedly exhausted.”

The deadly storm made landfall on the east coast of the US on Friday bringing with it "biblical" flooding on what's been described as a "thousand-year rain event".

That is hilarious. Totally not fake news.





Nope. I don't see a pattern of deceit. Do you?

Every news report I've listened to has degenerated into hyperbole far too often. This was a really bad storm for central/southeastern North Carolina, but it's been a bit of a nothingburger for most of the rest of us in the Carolinas. Not over yet, of course, and we'll have flooding from swollen rivers through the week, but it's not Hurricane Andrew or Hugo. Those were terrifying monsters.

It has been bad in some places, and they may (giving them the benefit of the doubt) want to make the storm look bad so people will take it seriously. But I'm a cynic. They do this for ratings.

The problem is if these media types exaggerate like that then people are not going to take them seriously when they are NOT exaggerating.

Good job, idiots...

Trump should retweet these in a compilation.

A few weeks ago i was forced to listen to AM neo con talk radio when my phone died. After 2 hours i was ready to snap. So much hyperbole, manipulation and flat out lies.

Ive been away from the MSM for so long it actually fucked with me pretty bad, it was like the twilight zone. Any time i happen to get stuck watching TV when im out somewhere it always feels like im watching TV from inside the movie, like a parody or satire.

What a shitshow.

I saw this clip on twitter. It is kind of sad when even the weather channel has devolved into #FakeNews.
