It’s a slow news day.
Gotta fill 30 minutes (or more) so the assignment editor, who probably has never actually reported a story, come up with an idea.
“Hey, let’s follow-up that bear story from last week. Someone go do a story about what to do if you run into a bear.”
It probably falls to the newest reporter because anyone with any brains will stay far away from that stupidity.
Here’s the part we like from her report:
“If the bear attacks, roll up into a ball or lay on your stomach.”
“Above all – stay calm.”
If that’s possible while the bear is chomping on your butt.
