These 19 News Fails Couldn’t Be More Inappropriate

News Fails - Thorough Notes

Broadcast news is a high-stakes, extremely competitive part of television. Ratings wars can get intense, especially for the morning shows. So it’s always a surprise when the streamlined news operations slip up. And that’s exactly what the folks on this list did. These news fails take the faux pas into extremely inappropriate territory. Warning – these aren’t exactly NSFW, but you probably don’t want your boss reading over your shoulder, either.

News fails can’t get much more severe than holding up a page of notes to reveal male genitalia drawn on the back of them. Or maybe it’s not male genitalia. Maybe it’s a very tall ten-gallon hat. Very tall and very round.
