Or Navika's pathbreaking coverage of Taimur on the potty:
Latest on primetime: Taimur is on potty, can't give flying kiss to Times Now viewers. pic.twitter.com/mM6Kaj6JX5— Manisha Pande (@MnshaP) March 27, 2020
Indian media is truly one of a kind and this time we have a new entrant to news-comedy circus.
Competing for a spot at primetime TV's newest low is the Telegu news channel TV-9. In a video that can best be described as ...bizarre? a military tanker protrudes from the screen and blows up the anchor mid monologue. While the presenter was attempting to cover the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, the graphics team couldn't hold in their tricks any longer.
Watch the video here:
The video was shared on Twitter by Sonam Mahajan to her 450k+ followers and has since gone viral.
It seems that some Twitterati echo our sentiments:

We can only hope news channels start paying their graphic interns to avoid such beautiful disasters. Or not - this shit is funny.
