Nude Reporter Wins Tsunami Reporting Sweepstakes
Anderson Cooper in Sri Lanka NEW YORK Television news executives celebrated the third week of tsunami news coverage with three martini lunches and high fives. Disaster reporting is good for business. "It reminds you of the awesome responsibility we have," Neal Shapiro of NBC News told Bongo News. "It also reminds you of the awesome profits we can make!"
NBC's Brian Williams broadcast the nightly news from Banda Aceh, Indonesia, with the trademark white makeup under his eyes melting in the tropical heat and streaming down his face like tears. CNN's Anderson Cooper sent emotional broadcasts from Sri Lanka, saying how blond he felt besides the dark Sri Lankans. CBS's Dan Rather got to Asia nine days' late, but immediately began to search through debris, "looking for documents."
Fox News did not send anyone to Asia, but instead put stock pickers on camera to argue with each other about which stocks would gain or lose from the disaster.
But Sharon Reid of WIOI-TV in Cleveland stole the show, stripping off to report in the nude. "Lot's of people had the clothes torn off their backs by the force of the waves," she said, "like this!"
