First — The Weather Channel gets caught faking the strength of Hurricane Florence (in case you haven’t seen it).

The Weather Channel went on to defend their reporter:

“It’s important to note that the two individuals in the background are walking on concrete, and Mike Seidel is trying to maintain his footing on wet grass, after reporting on-air until 1:00 a.m. ET this morning and is undoubtedly exhausted,” a spokesperson wrote.

Then see the parodies:

 

Beware of shopping trolleys:

Anderson Cooper, star of CNN, finds the deepest ditchhe can report from (h/t WattsUp)

UPDATE: Ryan Maue asks and his readers tell him it is a photo from Hurricane Ike ten years ago.

 

Some on Twitter say the CNNshot is from 2008. Who knows? I can’t confirm.

See #CNN and their #FakeNews

 

People have died in the millionth fatal storm to hit humankind. But thousands have died thanks to FakeNews.

Commiserations to all those who have lost something (or someone) precious this weekend.
