Journalists reporting from the fields can go to extreme lengths. They even put themselves at risk to cover a news story.
Now, a viral video of a Pakistani anchor standing in neck-deep water to report about the country’s flood situation is making rounds on social media. In the video, the man’s head was sticking out in the viral clip while he reported on the case.

Well, the level of journalism has baffled the netizens leaving them in splits.
Several have raised their concerns about the current state of journalism, its ethics and the notion of media being the fourth pillar of democracy. However, this Pakistani reporter, perhaps oblivious about media and its ethics, breaks the so-called rules of news reporting one dance move at a time.
This isn’t the first time journalists have crossed a line while covering news and they have faced brutal criticism for the same. Previously, a journalist was slammed for recreating Sridevi’s death who reportedly passed away due to a heart attack while in a bathtub.
