11 Old School Newscaster Fails

Ok, everyone. Here are 11 clips of newscasters doing a bad job casting news. Why? Because this is the internet, it's what we do, and we do it well. If you like this kind of thing (and you're on BuzzFeed so, well yeah), you need to get on board with Deon Cole's Black Box. The former Conan writer/performer is obsessed with pop culture, TV and the web. And, since he's funny as hell, they gave him his own show, which debuts tonight at 10 PM on TBS.

LOL she misspelled "Erica."


It's worth watching the whole (30-second long) original clip just to see how this consummate pro keeps delivering the news as if it were his plan all along.

It's worth watching the full video if only to see Matt Lauer and Katie Couric not let her off the hook at all.
