Frustrated Reporter Takes Time To Vent During A Live Segment

(By Alex Alvarez, Mediaite) - Being a local TV news reporter is, often enough, a pretty tough gig. You don’t get to sit around in a climate-controlled studio like your anchor colleagues, you have to deal with rubberneckers and the type of clowns whose fingers spontaneously form “the shocker” upon seeing a TV camera, and you’re made to report on everything from a kitten being stuck in a tree to a brutal murder.
