Competition for the GUARDIAN “dope reporter award” is heating up among the local newsies. Not to be outdone by the crosstown rivals at KTVB, Jeff Platt of KBOI-TV 2 got caught Wednesday evening playing in a canal.
While sternly warning viewers about the dangers of easily accessible canals and the number one cause of death for young children being drowning, guess where reporter Platt was spotted? He was wearing hip boots, recording each step with a Go-Pro camera as he sloshed his way along the canal toward the camera. Something about TV reporters and playing in the water.
Even the kids who apparently lost a football to the water had enough sense to stay out of the ditch, at least on camera.
