This might rank as one of most adorable media mishaps ever. During a live segment from the Fall Harvest Fest in Platteville, Colo., KDVR Fox 31’s Dan Duru attempted to interview the furrow-browed “Drew the Farm Kid,” but the reporter’s bad joke—comparing the child’s hair to that of Albert Einstein’s—drives the tyke to tears. Dan beats a hasty retreat, leaving the parenting to the professionals.
“Fox and Friends” anchor Gretchen Carlson didn’t fare much better with Max Rice, a “recent college grad” invited on the show to talk about his loss of faith in President Obama. Greeting Miss America Carlson with a “S’up,” the hijacked interview was downhill for the reporter from there.
