RunningMan: TVNZ reporter tear gassed during Football World Cup riots in Paris

That sounds bad until you get almost to the end of the drama story and you find


Reid said she and the camera operator had walked back the 400m to the hotel from their spot on the Champs Elysees after the crowds had left but there had not been enough time for the tear gas to disappear and they walked through it.



Ha.

Up there with the "man who once visited New Zealand on holiday gets Nobel Prize' line of reporting.

Constipation is a terrible thing in the military. Maybe they meant ‘soilder’ - which is the opposite.

I re-thought this and came back to delete it because I thought it was just way too stupid - then saw it had a +1. Oh well ....

Correct headline: TVNZ reporter to stupid to not walk through tear gas.

 

OTOH, that's not exactly news either.

Did you mean ‘too’ stupid? (‘Hoist’ and ‘petard’?).

Here's one I wrote all by myself:

 

Breaking News: Sun can't be seen at night in New Zealand

 

Do you think the Herald or Stuff would employ me to write headlines?
