    ^^Totally.

    The Today show was trying to say that the Defense Dept. tried to script soldiers when asking Bush questions (which turned out to be false).

    Then they show this gem live on TV a few minutes later.

    Makes you wonder about all kinds of crap that we see as `news` on the ol` telly.

    Why are you assuming that she`s trying to make it seem worse then it actually is? She doesn`t seem very distressed by it.. and is almost making light of the situation.

    Honestly, its obviously a local news bit, not CNN.

    Because they DO try to make it seem worse than it is. Remember when they said over 10,000 ppl died in New Orleans and the death toll turned out to be around 1,000? How over 200 ppl died in the superdome and it turned out to be 6? Are you a journalism major?

    I live in southern N.J. and we got just over half the rain they got up north, thats what it looked like in places of my town, not the whole town though. I think we got like 20 inches or something over the entire week, the ground wasn`t saturated though so most of it didn`t stay on top.

    actually just click on their screen name and it should take you to their profile, and there should be the same picture there too and it should work.

    First of all, that was on the Today show, which is something like the single most watched news show in the universe or something ridiculous like that.

    Secondly, they do things like that all the time. Even the anchors tend not to take themselves too seriously.

    Having seen it when it happened, I felt like the people walked behind her on purpose. After that happens, Matt asks her if people just walked by, then she laughs and they walk by again IMMEDIATLEY, and they commence making jokes and whatnot.

    I just saw this on the daily show, there was another clip too that happens after that and she says something along the lines of "now that we`re in deeper water, as you can see because my oar goes down 3 or 4 feet" and then like 100 yards behind her is a guy just standing in the once again ankle deep water.
