Even The Reporters Blow It Once In A While
Remember the New Jersey Governor that didn't have his seatbelt on when his car crashed? He did some heavy time in the hospital and recovery. Jon Corzine was riding in the front seat of a State Police driven SUV when the near fatal accident occurred. Because he did not have a seatbelt on, he was seriously injured.
Matt Lauer interviewed Corzine about that crash and the lack of seatbelt. Naturally, the Gov. was not happy to have broken the laws in his own state. Of course, Mr. Lauer apparently did not learn from the lesson either. A few weeks later, Lauer was on the Today show, in the back seat of an SUV Republican Presidental hopeful, Mitt Romney. Ahem. Neither person was wearing a seatbelt!
The boo boo was noticed before the show aired today but Mr. Lauer needed to address the situation as did Mr. Presidental hopeful, Romney. Both were sorry about the oversight. Uh, guys? Law of the land. Newscaster is one thing...he should set a good example. However, Mr. Romney wants the highest seat in the land but does not want that seat to have a seatbelt!!! Set a good example, Mr. Not-ready-for-primetime politician.
