We hear of journalists risking their lives overseas every day, getting caught in crossfire and detained by dangerous regimes, all in the name of duty. Reporters stateside face risks as well, particularly when reporting from Bourbon Street.
Jessica Sanchez, a correspondent from Orlando’s CBS affiliate, learned this when a presumably drunken videobomber interrupted her live report from the notorious New Orleans party strip ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl. Quick on her feet, Sanchez flips the script on her story-crasher, even inquiring if the woman has a sexually transmitted disease (STD). While online viewers went nuts over the segment, editors at SB Nation have questioned the reporter’s professionalism.
