A reporter in India lost his job because he reported about a flood. Well, he reported about a flood from the shoulders of a flood victim. The reporter didn't want to get wet and said the local man offered to help out.

The reporter also said that he blames the camera guy. Why is that? Well, the camera guy supposedly agreed to shoot the reporter from the shoulders up so that he wouldn't be seen on the shoulders of the local man.

Either way, who cares if your pants get a little wet. Isn't that what "field reporting" is all about?
