YouTube's Greatest Ever News Reporter Falls


We are fan of the high arts at ShortList.com. We can appreciate a passionate opera, a thought-provoking piece of modern art, or a stunning example of architecture.

But we also like laughing at people falling over.

So praise be to YouTube channel NewsBeFunny who have created this fantastic compilation of the best news reporter falls in the history of YouTube.

Getting out on the news front line is a dangerous, perilous job and, thankfully for us, one that seemingly involves having to suffer the occasional unintended onscreen upending.

Watch, point and laugh. It's what they would want.
