I got a tip from media critic Yisrael Medad about some fool newsman in the US who may have incited kids to ride their bikes across a flooded bridge.

TV newsman accused of enticing kids to ride bikes in floodwater

NORWALK, Ohio - A television news cameraman paid a $145 fine after police said he enticed three teenagers to ride their bikes through waist-high floodwaters.
Of course, he denies it.
"Abrahamsen denied coaxing the two 13-year-olds and one 14-year-old to ride through the water, and told The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer that paying the fine was cheaper than fighting the citation."

The point isn't so much whether or not it happened, but the fact that the mainstream media today are so mediocre they can credible be accused of idiotic behaviour such as this.
