Hurricane Sandy’s ‘rogue wave’ attacks CBS reporter

CBS News reporter Chip Reid called it a “rogue wave.” Whatever you call it, it caused some difficulties for Reid and his setup in Ocean City, Md. “The camera is the only thing that didn’t go down into the two feet of water in which we had been standing.” There’s really no such thing, of course, as a “rogue wave” in a once-in-a-lifetime storm, something that Reid appeared to have acknowledged in his chat with “CBS This Morning.”

“Whatever respect you think you need to give a hurricane, give a little bit more,” said Reid. Question for broadcasters: Time to rethink the live shot with the raingear-clad reporter fighting the wind and rain?
