  1. Nice recovery by the anchor. She acknowledged the error in a semi-lighthearted fashion, but kept the gravity of the story in focus, and then got right back on track with the script.

  2. When the hamster appeared, I had a mouthful of cereal. Took everything I had to keep it there.

    Someone at the studio got an ass chewing over that one.

  6. All you who are laughing at this are morons and nothing else. Girl’s life is in danger and these idiots made an unforgivable mistake. Whoever did this needs to visit social services because that’s the only place where he should pick up his pay cheques. Someone is making fun out of someone else’s tragedy.

    Only is fucking USA!

  10. If you can’t find humor in this, you’re taking life way too seriously. Life is a tragedy, get over it.

  12. When I saw the preview before it loaded, I totally thought it was going to be a Bish to Bitch flub. Caught totally offguard by Rodney Stanger, when he gets out he owes me a new keyboard

  13. Did anyone else notice that they say she is 16, say she disappeared 8 years ago, (she would have been 8) and that she was on active duty as a lifeguard? I think they had more than the picture messed up.

  15. OMG!!! THAT IS THE FUNNIEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE. SERIOUSLY. THERE CAN AND NEVER WILL BE ANYTHING FUNNIER THAN A TWO SECOND GLIMPSE OF A HAMSTER ON A NEWSCAST. IT WAS ESPECIALLY FUNNY HOW THE NEWSREADER HANDLED IT SO WELL AND IN SUCH A PROFESSIONAL AND CALM FASHION. ZOMG!! I THINK I WILL DIE.

  16. I really love the fact that you can hear someone laughing in the background. It’s no wonder they hired that woman to be the anchor.. she has no sense of humor. If a picture of a hamster appeared instead of a convicted felon, I would have lost it.

  17. Hamsters are infamous kidnappers. The most notorious was “Hammy” who in 1932 kidnapped the infant son of the famous aviator Charles Lindbergh, which was referred to as the “crime of the century”. A photo of Hammy was recently discovered….

  18. Upon finally escaping from “The Green Mile”, Mr. Jingles went into hiding and formulated his master plan to frame the man who done him wrong oh so many years ago. And he would have gotten away with it, if it hadn’t been for these meddling kids!

  19. That looks like the same hamster that was seen around our neighborhood before my friend disappeared. Maybe I should call the police.

    But kudos to the newscaster, her recovery was pretty damn good, and fast.

  23. Funny stuff. Got a good laugh out of me.

    To those wondering how that picture could have got there by mistake. In production and development, often times when an asset isn’t available(in this case, the suspect’s picture) a temporary picture will be thrown in to occupy the place. I often use the same picture that looks off the wall so that I know to go back and change it when I get the correct asset.

    “am i the only one who wonders where that hamster was needed correctly in the news? ”

    Since the hamster is holding a slate, I’m thinking he’s the ‘place holder’ graphic that the production crew uses when they don’t have the correct image loaded in their software yet. He seems to be kind of like one of those old “Please Stand By” graphics. When things go wrong, they sometimes have an image that they cut to like that. Why it’s a hamster is up for debate.

    I’ve done years of TV and movie graphics, and instead of a blank box, we always use an image that is obviously not the right one until the project is done. A guy I used to work with always used a picture of Chewbacca, so you could immediately know that the right image was still in the works. Whenever we didn’t have the correct graphic for a computer monitor on “24” or whatever show it was, we called it a “Chewbacca” (so we always had to make sure that Chewie didn’t end up in the finished show) Instead of a brain scan on Dr. House’s computer monitor or something, we’d have Chewie there until we were done animating the fake MRI or crime scene photo, etc… Luckily we never let that happen (however, plenty of other intentional oddness has appeared in countless shows, if you’re observant).

    That kind of mistake happens a lot more often on live shows like the news.

  26. There is no way I would have been able to keep a straight face if that happened to me. What an amazing reporter.
