Ew: Reporter Gets Pummeled With Raw Sewage While Covering Hurricane Irene In Ocean City, MD

“It doesn’t taste great,” he says.

MYFOXNY.COM reports:

- A local news reporter from Washington, D.C. ended up getting covered in what is probably the remnants of raw sewage as he delivered live hurricane reports from Ocean City, Md.

WTTG-TV reporter Tucker Barnes was providing live updates for stations around the country as a wall of what he described as sea foam poured over him.

Barnes was on the boardwalk as Hurricane Irene hit the coast of Maryland

He noted that he had immersed himself in organic material.  That “organic material” was most likely the effects of raw sewage pouring into the water during the storm.

He WISHes it was just plankton…

I’m not saying watch all nine minutes of this. A minute or two of it is plenty, but if you’re like me, you’ll  snicker like the kid behind the camera:

    I saw that on TV either on the Weather Channel or Fox and I knew it wasn’t clean healthy stuff making that nasty foam up.

    And according to the AFP News, Obama “took charge” at the hurricane command center” when he got there. Ha ha! That made me giggle. He’s just desperate to look like he’s in charge of something, isn’t he?

    New reporter’s first assignment: “Go down and cover the hurricane/tsunami/typhoon/flood. Get some good footage. Don’t forget your sou’wester”.
