    Hey, give the guy some credit. He had to go to mime school for four years to learn that "walking against the wind" move.

    The reporter's theatrics were a little disappointing but not surprising. I got the impression that most of the media started inflating things when Florence began weakening rather than continuing to grow into the Storm of the Century.

    With that being said, I do have a bit of morbid fascination with hurricane events, but I am certainly happy that it seems to be a lot less than anticipated.

    Fake news by a fake journalist for a fake show watched by fake viewers.

    Nothing new there.

    heard of something similar happening, where a girl walks by normally behind a 'reporter' who is making it seem like they're about to get blown away

    Well, to give him a little bit of a doubt, he's wearing rain gear that will catch the wind. Kinda like those skydive machines where you wear those jump suits. The guys in the background are in shorts and T-shirts, low drag.

    And, of course, that TWC reporter is full of hot air.

    TWC's shift over the years to advocacy and activism has been tiresome; but firing Cheryl Lemke was unforgivable.

    Its like the media have become compulsive liars. Even when lying isnt necessary, or even in mundane circumstances, the lie comes forth easier than the truth, because lying is now so natural and easy for them.

    When I saw it, it looked like the wind was blowing from behind him, so he was leaning with the wind. Don't you normally lean into the wind?

    I think youre right
    Looks like the front of his clothes are flapping in the wind, where the back of it is pressed against him.
    Look at the grass in the background which can be viewed just to the left of his knees/legs, looks the same, blowing to the left.

    Good eye
