OMG. That is funny!! I missed that one.
I just have to laugh every time I see that picture.
I love that shot. I remember seeing it and it the first thing to mind when I think of the Media. She was talking about how bad it was and then two dudes walk past. Classic.
Here is how it happened.....
At the top of the 7 oclock hour, Matt Lauer introduced the report:
But first, the severe flooding here in the Northeast, as more rain continues to fall today. NBCs Michelle KosinskiI guess, shes in a canoe .
Boy, was she! From the belly of the craft, Ms. Kosinski delivered a report in which she described evacuation efforts and mentioned that there was deeper, rougher water nearby. Just as she was kicking it back to Katie Couric, the two men splashed their way into the frame.
Mr. Lauer perked up. Is there some kind of severe drop-off there between the foreground that wego back, he said. We saw these guys a second ago, Michelle, walkingare these holy men walking on top of water? Whats going on here?
Ms. Kosinski, who last month was named this years hot reporter on Rolling Stone magazines annual Hot List, improvised gamely. Why walk, she said, when you can ride?
Is your oar hitting the ground, Michelle? asked Ms. Couric, not one to miss so golden an opportunity.
Of course not, Ms. Kosinski replied. Its as smooth as silk.
That one is the best ever... even better than the idiot reporter standing out in the wind and rain of the huricane, only to move 10 feet to his left where the wind was not lashing much at all the minute he thinks the scene is over.
