Dumb antics of news reporters out in the field

Galvestion, TX - female reporting outside while Hurricane Nicholas made landfall. Bent over trying to shield her face and mic away from the roaring wind and rain to prove how bad it was. I was kind of hoping she'd get blown away mid sentence. These stunts are just idiotic.

Its funny to see reporters in any and every kind of storm and then question why the average citizen would venture out in it like they are some kind of expert.

My favs are when the reporter is making exaggerated attempts at staying upright in the face of whatever event while people in the background are seen conducting themselves as usual.

I can't find clips of it now but years ago during some hurricane Shepard Smith had his little on-scene reporter man do his spot standing in the wind and rain. The guy was wearing those old work out pants that snapped up the sides. At one point the wind knocked him over and then dragged him in circles on the ground and the pants were ripped open. Shepard kindly went to commercial.
