Anyone who’s ever worked in media can relate to the sheer horror of even the potential of something like this happening.
Jason Colthorp of WILX-TV in Lansing, Michigan appears to be a young guy trying to make his way in television news–which anyone will tell you is a tough business.
You throw in the chaos of a long election night and the non-stop updates from a producer in your headset, and this is what can happen.
And wouldn’t you think at least one of his co-workers would attempt to throw him a rope here? Not a chance. Not only didn’t they help, they actually seem like they’re irritated with him. Talk about not having your co-worker’s back!
When you watch this , you just want to yell…..”SAY SOMETHING…ANYTHING!”
I warn you–this is painful to watch!
