I turned on the local news from Charlotte, NC today and the weather report was on. We are getting hit by a big winter storm. And it has been forecasted for a week with lots of specific warnings, etc.
So the weather man says that if you are stuck in your car, "do not get out of you car because it is dangerous."
Not 20 minutes later the station goes live to the scene of a road where people in cars are stuck in traffic for MILES! A woman reporter is shown--wait for it!--walking in the road to go interview people stopped in their cars ... as in walking in the road between cars to interview people!
You just cannot make this stuff up.
And then ... eventually ... station management asks her NOT to walk out into traffic! Um, duh!
What did the reporter ask the motorists? "Did you expect this?"
And they said, "No."
