One reporter had a major “oops!” moment during live!
Reporters on live television are constantly under pressure. When reporters go live, they have one shot to get their lines right and not make any mistakes. Although this is the expected outcome, it doesn’t always work out this way. Reporters sometimes make mistakes, and when they do, to their misfortune, it is not only a mistake that can’t be undone but it is caught on camera for viewers to laugh at and constantly replay for amusement.
Recently, one of these mistakes happened while an anchor was live on TV. This unfortunate but not so uncommon error has occurred to an Australian-American TV news anchor, Savannah Guthrie.
In the video, Guthrie can be seen looking at her notes before saying, “S–t,” than “sorry, guys.”
In order to detract from the surprising error, the person who was recording the live show immediately turned off her microphone and cut to a commercial. While everything was going on, program watchers started talking about Savannah’s error online. Despite the fact that some individuals were making fun of the circumstance, others were sympathetic to her predicament and found humor in the error.
Even other viewers claimed that they liked her more as a result of her error. The news channel may have covered up the second swear word that the anchor said after the first one, according to several rumors. If this is the case, the station did a fantastic job of concealing the error because two mistakes are unquestionably worse than one.
Guthrie made the decision to post a public apology online after the on-air error. She expressed regret on Twitter for using foul language during the show and even made fun of herself by joking that she didn’t realize her microphone was on. As others started to comment and post about her apology, the tide of public opinion started to turn.
“Check, check – is this thing on? Yeah I guess it is. So sorry guys. Thanks for being kind and understanding. And guess it’s good thing I don’t wear a mic all day. #ohdarn,” Guthrie tweeted.
