    'Today' Reporter Paddles in Shallow Water

    http://www.breitbart.com/news/2005/10/14/D8D824KO4.html

    NEW YORK

    If Michelle Kosinski's canoe had sprung a leak on NBC's "Today" show Friday, she didn't have much to worry about.

    In one of television's inadvertently funny moments, the NBC News correspondent was paddling in a canoe during a live report about flooding in Wayne, N.J. While she talked, two men walked between her and the camera _ making it apparent that the water where she was floating was barely ankle-deep.

    Matt Lauer struggled to keep a straight face, joking about the "holy men" who were walking on water.

    "Have you run aground yet?" Katie Couric asked.

    "Why walk when you can ride?" Kosinski replied.

    Later, an NBC News spokeswoman explained that Kosinski had been riding in deeper water near an overflowing river down the street, but there were concerns that the current was too strong for her.

    "It's not like we were trying to pass it off as something it wasn't," spokeswoman Lauren Kapp said.

    What an incredible joke.

    That's exactly what you were trying to do, Lauren.

    Yeah, but she will be on TV "blooper" shows from now on.

    Rehearsed, fake, misleading, treason, impeach. Just wanted to save us the bandwidth.

    I kinda get the impression that pretty much all of the Today show reporters are paddling in shallow water. Show sure isn't as good as it once was.
