Doug Fernandez of KOAT in Albuquerque, New Mexico, just couldn’t take it anymore.
The news anchor was cutting away to a reporter in the field when he realized that the remote shot wasn’t ready. He noted the problem and moved on to another story ― just in time for the on-location feed to kick in and interrupt him.
So he threw his papers up in the air and appeared to walk off the set.
We wonder, for dignity’s sake, if he would have been better off handling the difficulty like a BBC broadcaster who stoically endured several minutes of glitches last month.
