Would somone please tell those idiot weathermen to get out of the wind and rain.
They obviously lack any common sense and need a phonecall from a manager.

There is absolutely zero reason for them to be standing out there except their egos.

And all it does is cause noise in their broadcast.

I'm not hearing any wind noise in their mics. They are obviously well prepared.

I am watching Mike on the weather channel and his sound quality has quite abit of unwanted noise.

And the fact they have no PFDs when standing at the water's edge on a dock with 50mph winds strongly suggests they are not well prepared.

Sure but the point is they are not accomplishing anything by standing in it that could not be done better elsewhere.

Even the parking garage reporting with the view behind them makes good sense but watching the announcer and cameraman take turns falling over is more like Moe, Larry & Curly than a professional broadcast.

And for those of us in the track who have been monitoring these clowns for the past 36 hours, we would certainly prefer to see something actually useful.

Yeah I agree. They holler and carry telling everyone else to run for the hills about a terrible approaching storm, then they run out there in the middle of it exposing themselves to real danger from flying debris. Just really stupid. I would understand if they were filming from a place of cover not exposing themselves to the winds.

Sensationalism sells. Sex sells. Face time on air sells. Those weathermen in wind and rain are here to stay.

Who cares? They're deciding to go stand out in it, so if they get hurt then that's on them.

Not hurting emergency crews because they're refusing to rescue people.

So basically they are like trained monkeys who go out and dance around in the rain for a banana while the audience throws pennies into their owner's tin cup.

They are "Weather Monkeys".

Poorly trained Weather Monkeys.

Probably thier manager who told them to go out in the hurricane and do live coverage.
