There's reporting the news, then there's some kind of responsibiliy of public safety.
An NBC affiliate in Warren, Michigan was doing a story on a big pothole along a local road. The pothole was bad enough that car tires were being damaged.
The problem was, drivers couldn't see the depth of the pothole, with all the rainfall. And, the TV news crew kept filming as multiple drivers were sustaining blowouts....19 vehicles to be exact!
Finally, a concerned citizen who saw all the cars being damaged put flares out on the road. Of course, the news crew filmed that, too.
