One of the best things about live news is that you never know what’s going to happen – what Freudian slips, accidents, confrontations or bizarre turns of events could be caught on tape and make it to the top of the YouTube charts. Today, a BBC clip of weatherman Tomasz Schafernaker giving the finger is going viral on YouTube and it inspired us to put together a list of some of our favorite news bloopers. Check them out after the jump!
