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.

It's behind because You have been slacking off too much.
Who do you think brings the content to Fark in the first place?

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.

skinink: EngineerAU: Funny but I doubt any news director looking to hire her in the future would look favorably on her actions.

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.


Reporters are working folk just like the rest of us.  Who wants some arshole farking their shiat up?

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.

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".


I found it amusing too but that doesn't stop it from being unprofessional. Heck, most of the things I find funny are unprofessional. Luckily it's not my reputation on the line so I'm free to laugh.

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.

So as a NOLA resident you should know that one of the first things tourists notice about the area is the stench, right? She's not saying something shockingly surprising, so stfu

The problem is that the situation she dealt with was the situation that was supposed to happen.  I'm not even coming at it from a 'learn to deal' perspective.  It would be like going to a rock concert and complaining to the venue that the music is too loud.

How long have you had an STD?

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 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.
