It takes a lot for a news bulletin to go wrong. There’s a lot of planning and preparation before the cameras go ‘live’! However, as indicated in a new video clip which has gone viral, news reporting is usually informative, but from time to time it can be hilarious.   

The video featuring two news anchors in studio trended on Twitter.
