BREAKING: (Mostly) Local News Bloopers Had The Best Year, Ever

Tonight at 11, local news is going to break your funny bone.
Some of the year's most viral moments weren't the result of a clever late night host or budding YouTube star. They were innocent flubs that, for better or worse, brought a fast-ticking 15 minutes of fame to mostly smaller news stations. From the woman who said "Fuck it! I quit" live on air to a teenage boy unleashing his inner diva, and all the bee attacks in between, these are the hardest working folks in the industry. They deliver the news and the laughs. They keep that human element alive when all those other polished newscasts just straight-up report.
