Best News Bloopers Of 2011 (VIDEO)

Why are local news bloopers so great? Is it because they are livewire act that could go awry at any second, and often do? Is it because it's just funny to watch stuffy people in suits slip up and say dirty words? Or because panicking over a failed cameraman or producer's cue is just fun to watch?

Yes, yes and yes. Funny Local News has helpfully put together a supercut of the best local news bloopers that 2011 had to offer, from the jetpack man who pushes the reporter in a lake, to interns running on camera and anchors reacting to people in the field losing their cool. And of course, lots of accidental cursing.
