I'd answer: "I'm not sure. When did your mom catch it?"

I love all of the outrage in the user comments of the article.  "They're on Bourbon Street!  Of course there are drunks!  It comes with the territory and you should just learn to deal."

Umm, I think she dealt with the situation very well.

She could be hired by one of those half hour entertainment shows that comes on between 7-8pm. I was surprised one day to see even TMZ has a show on tv.

One day I was watching a reporter doing a pre taped segment for the news. Some passerby ruined the shot, and the reporter went off on the person, yelling that the person was an asshole.

Want the city to smell nicer, with less trash? Well, I think it would be as simple enough as informing the tourist not to use the city streets as a toilet....but if NOPD brought down the hammer and arrested a bunch of people there would be much whining.

The reason why the reporter was doing the shot from Bourbon Street is because of the Super Bowl is in New Orleans and the 49ers are one of the teams playing in it. So both the station she works for and the viewers do care.  What's next, reporting from the Daytona 500 and getting mad that the parking lot is full of fans?

Apparently she's the traffic reporter for the station so this would have been a chance for her to show she is ready to move up the ladder to lifestyle stories. Too bad she blew her chance. Now instead of doing traffic in Miami, she's likely to end up doing the farm report... which if she gets sacked and ends up in Idaho, could be a prestigious position.

2013-01-31 01:20:30 AM
I think the station should find the woman it accused of having an STD and apologize to her.  Trying to shame people with lies because they annoyed you is not journalism.

If you're reporting on the Superbowl, live, on the street, by a bar, you shouldn't get upset if someone gets on camera to cheer their team.  Just deal with it.

The reporter could have laughed at the silly lady and wish her team luck and moved on, but I guess that's not vindictive enough for the tastes of some.
 
2013-01-31 01:21:14 AM
Ah, the beauty of the internet.  Taking something that locals who are actually up and watching TV at 5 AM would find amusing, and putting it on display for people with deficient humor glands to shiat all over.

Some of us found it quite amusing.  I'd happily take her out for drinks and see if she remembers the words to "The Beaver Song".

Quickest way to shut someone down?  Didn't look to me like she shut anyone down to me.  That drunk girl continued to go on after the reporter finally turned away from her.  I bet if the reporter had simply ignored the drunk chick from the very beginning she would have moved on once she got her little 'shout out' on camera.

I didn't see any whining. What video did you watch?


The one where she was complaining about what she had to put up with when doing the assignment.  It seems to me, that having a few drunk people wander into the shot and interrupt is kind of the point.

I'd be in the reporter's camp if she were outside a courthouse reporting on a trial or somewhere similar, but when you setup a camera, at night, in front of a bar, on Bourbon street, before the Superbowl, you might as well have a giant neon sign put up that reads, "Hi, we are doing a fluff piece on the craziness going on here, would you mind yelling 'Woooo' or giving a thumbs up with one hand while holding a beer in the other while do this lighthearted piece?"

A smart reporter knows how to guide the crowd, get the shot, and get done.   Toss the people mugging for the camera a bone by acknowledging them, they yell 'Woooo!!', and you turn back to the camera and say "Well, Bob, as you can see the people here are already getting into the spirit of things.  Live from Bourbon Street, I'm professional reporter."  That last statement is the cue for the gawkers to cheer, wave, and add to the closing shot.  Video returns to the senior reporter at the desk, they chuckle a bit at the amusing situation, and say, "In more serious news, government officials confirm that..."

Why am I hard on this reporter?   The woman wasn't going to be a problem.  She wandered into the shot, yelled out for her team, and probably would have wandered in less than 5 seconds.  Instead, the reporter went straight to 11 and lashed out on someone who was just being a jovial drunk (and not even that drunk).  It's unprofessional, and more importantly, she utterly failed at 'dealing' with the situation because it completely derailed the story, and kept the distracting woman on camera even longer than necessary.

Do you smack a Luxan into hyper rage and get angry because it hurt you?

She went to a place known for drunken debauchery and camwhores, at a time when only the brightest stars of that world would be shining, set up a stage, and then publicly biatchslapped a star for stepping on the stage.

Screw her. She wanted sensationalism and she got it. Then she hurt another to get it, thats when I lost any and all sympathy for her. She could have been cool about it, but she had to humiliate someone. Screw that.

What a whiny biatch of a reporter.  What kind of reporter gets upset at the exact type of behavior that you are trying to encourage by filming in such an area?  Again, it's in front of a bar, on Bourbon Street...

What a whiny biatch of a fark poster. She didn't whine, she handled the situation. In a funny way.

Yeah, she handled it all right.  She kept the woman on camera longer than necessary, derailed the focus of her report, and lashed out against someone who wasn't hostile to you.  Yes, she handled it.  Poorly.


She handled it beautifully. Obviously the interrupting woman wanted some airtime between bouts of holding her drink above her head while swaying and yelling "WOOOOOO!" so the reporter gave it to her. They enjoyed a little joke back and forth, then the drunk wandered off.

As usual, the Fark Pantywad Brigade is flipping the f*ck out about nothing. WOOOOO!

Oh, I'm sorry, she wasn't talking shiat about my city? Being a general biatchass? Oh, ok, I take back any offense I might have felt. She was using "pine-sol vomit" in an endearing way.

Want the city to smell nicer, with less trash? Well, I think it would be as simple enough as informing the tourist not to use the city streets as a toilet....but if NOPD brought down the hammer and arrested a bunch of people there would be much whining. So, how bout we all shut the fark up, buy multiple drinks and tip our bartender, and call it a day?I can dish it, but I refuse to take it.

Fark links to stories on other sites. They have to post the stories before they can be linked too. So unless you have a time machine and can link to things that will be posted in the future, you can find ever story posted somewhere else before it's here.

Jessica Sanchez is WKMG's traffic reporter; she stands in front of a green screen and points to traffic snarls.  I doubt she is in line for the Edward R Murrow Award after this foray into live "reporting".

Her crew could have kept the woman out of the shot or shooed her away - she was harmless - but they chose to let an inebriated woman wander into the shot ... which kind of makes me wonder if there is no love lost for Jessica.

2013-01-31 07:53:21 AM
Truth in journalism certainly isn't that reporters motto. However, she's really just opening herself, and the station she works for, up to possible court action in the future. At many news stations around the country, she would be fired before the week was out.
 
2013-01-31 07:58:17 AM
It was amusing to a point. If it were me, I would have went with the 49ers theme and asked her if she watched the team's season and what her favorite matchup was. It could have been lively, yet respectful, and made for good TV. Then I would have told her to be safe and enjoy her stay in the city.
 
2013-01-31 08:03:30 AM
This thread is hilarious. News station sends reporter to place, drunk people interrupt her doing her job, she makes comment about "how long have you had STDs?" and the person walks off.

FARK reacts as if she turned around and committed a human rights violation on the person before bludgeoning them out of frame. Then there's a bunch of people acting like George Costanza posting their favorite zings they would've shot back right there on the spot, if they were an obnoxious drunk person wandering the street. This reporter had a quintessential FARK-y snarky question and she's a "whiny biatch". Jessica should've been a nerdy white dude instead, then people would be singing a different tune to this story I imagine.

I just laughed. Sounds like some thin-skinned folks here if they get offended on behalf of New Orleans for this very minuscule incident, or that if someone asked them a middling insult question like that they'd be incredibly hurt. Let's all wring our hands over the mental confidence of public drunks.

I see everyone with an STD is all butthurt about this.

This reporter is clever, and while I'm sure she'll be reassigned or fired, I applaud her for making it funny.  Ol' dirty Nawlens is old and dirty.
 
2013-01-31 08:30:15 AM
Before seeing the video, my first reaction was to side with the reporter trying to do her job while some drunk, obnoxious idiot is dancing around and making noise behind her, ruining the shot.

After seeing the video, I can't take that position.  The reporter was doing a story on the PEOPLE (whom she called "zombies") walking around at that time of the morning, not just some general Super Bowl "on location" bit.  All the girl did, probably after hearing the lead-in, was wave and say "hey", and was immediately invited by the reporter to do the interview, which at first seemed to be about the Super Bowl.

This "reporter" is going to be in deep shiat.

EngineerAU: EdNortonsTwin: She was  letting her producer or similar know she was not happy about her assignment that's for damn sure.

Apparently she's the traffic reporter for the station so this would have been a chance for her to show she is ready to move up the ladder to lifestyle stories. Too bad she blew her chance. Now instead of doing traffic in Miami, she's likely to end up doing the farm report... which if she gets sacked and ends up in Idaho, could be a prestigious position.


Yeah but she's hot and made a viral video.

You've never seen reporters out in the field have you. It's not like a movie set with people standing around running lighting, holding boom microphones and a director telling everyone what to do. There is no crew, it's her and a guy holding the camera, that's it.

The Larch: I'm  glad she got the drunk chick out of her really important and hard-hitting news story about how clean and shiny the street was after the streetsweeper went by.


Arcanum: I think the station should find the woman it accused of having an STD and apologize to her.  Trying to shame people with lies because they annoyed you is not journalism.

If you're reporting on the Superbowl, live, on the street, by a bar, you shouldn't get upset if someone gets on camera to cheer their team.  Just deal with it.

The reporter could have laughed at the silly lady and wish her team luck and moved on, but I guess that's not vindictive enough for the tastes of some.


10/10. Good work all of you.

Live "on the street" segments are one of the lowest forms of journalism. Whatever value they have can easily be replaced by taped segments.

If you insist on "doing it live" then you can't complain when the public messes with you. The street is not your studio.

You mean, the drunk obnoxious lady who interfered with an active news report, costing time, money, and energy? Yeah, sorry, if you want to drum up sympathy for someone you're imagining as a "victim" you're going to have to try a heck of a lot harder. She decided to stick her nose where it didn't belong, and got playfully smacked. The reporter will probably get disciplined, but I don't really blame her. It's 4-5am in the morning, and she probably just wants to get her shot and go home. The last thing she needs is some dumbass to come in and waste her, and everyone else in the crew's time.

Let me put it this way - how would you feel if you were at work, and when you were a few minutes from being free to go home, I walked in and started acting like a fool for no reason, causing you to waste a ton of you and your coworkers' time, and your employer's money?

You'd probably be a bit peeved. Heck, you might even say some not-nice things to them to get them to leave and stop wasting your time.

Where did I say that she was a victim? I think that the reporter over reacted. Did the reporter ask her to step aside, ask her to let her finish? No she didn't, she was unnecessarily rude.
