what's your reaction if you are the news presenter?

embarassing moment - as a news presenter, can you still continue with the news presenting?

i know this picture is very old and many have seen it a lot of times. i just want to know if you were the news presenter and things like this happens while you are presenting the news. what's your immediate response to it? can you still continue to present the news? do you think it would be the most embarrassing moment for you? i think i would be a little shock (of course if i know i never done it) but continue presenting the news as if the picture does not look like me.

A little? I had not seen this photo before, however, although I do not watch much TV, I do recall having actually seen that segment live and the newscaster did a great job of keeping his composure. Looks like maybe the police sketch artist had watched the evening news the night before!

oh really? i did not watch the live telecast and i just have this picture to judge. i wonder whether there were someone calls the police and said that he/she found the person = newcaster.

I never followed through to see if they caught the real suspect and what he actually looked like. When I saw the news though, at first I thought it might have been a prank that someone in the studio pulled on the newscaster, but that would have been just vicious.

If i'm the news presenter, i have to be very professional and continue with my presentations.. BUt if i'm a funky presenter, maybe i will shift my attention to that picture instead, and be talking about it, using as focal point.. haha =D Trying to link up the picture to whatever i'm presenting at the moment.. haha =D Though complaints might come in, but will make sure compliments is much more than complains.. lol =D

for example? how are you trying to link up the picture to whatever you are presenting at the moment? are you going to say that the picture looks like you and really is you?

great, on one hand you are asking the rapist to surrender himself, and on the other hand you are awarding prize for yourself (if people insist that the image looks like you)! unfortunately, there is a word saying rapist search below the picture.

I don't know what I would do but that is sooo funny! I wonder what everyone that was watching it thought? I bet there were some people that thought it was funny and then others that thought...Oh my...he's the rapist..

lol! i guess it will be kinda awkward! hehe but the show must go on and we have to be professional at all times... but i guess somehow, you can also add some humor after presenting the news...

yeah, but as a professional newscaster, i don't think we can add humour even after presenting the news. at least that's what i think. from the sketch itself, they look very much alike. but as from the respondent above said, the real criminal does not look the same. maybe the victim was influenced by her favourite television news and accidentally imagined the newscaster?

I would have to try to be professional and do my job and then react to it. Professionalism in all jobs is very important. It could prove most embarrassing but you have to do your job. And......the show does go on. It could be alot worse I am thinking. But I think I could handle it.

i think if we were there as the news presenter, we would not realize the similarities. but if we watch the playback again or a photo like this, it really looks very much alike (although not perfectly same). it's great that you believe and know that you could handle it.

no, that is not what i mean. try you enlarge the picture attached, then imagine you are the news presenter. don't you feel embarrassed because you look alike with the wanted person on screen? furthermore, the picture is just beside the news presenter for the world to see and judge!

I can't see that much resemblance myself.
