The Best News Bloopers of July

Jul 29, 2014

The month in entertaining news bloopers featured empty anchor desk chairs, a reporter swallowing a fly and a dog relieving itself in the background of a BBC weather report.

The most high-profile blooper is the clip of the prankster who called in to MSNBC last week pretending to be a U.S. staff sergeant who witnessed the missile strike that shot down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine.

And the video caps off with the moment when Joan River stormed out of a CNN interview because she thought the questions were judgmental and nasty — which David Letterman later spoofed by walking out on his Late Show interview with her.
