Saturday Night Funny Video: Fox Affiliate’s ‘Improvised’ Recreation of Escaping Bear

Noting “local news stations often don’t have the resources that national stations do,” back on Monday, May 6, FNC’s Bret Baier ended his program with a clip from WJW-TV “Fox8” in Cleveland which made a creative, if not convincing, effort to recreate an event on camera.

The story was about a bear sighting in the Cleveland suburb of Moreland Hills, but, Baier explained, “unfortunately, out affiliate, WJW, did not get a shot of the bear, so instead they improvised.”

How they did so certainly amused a disbelieving Baier.

NBC’s Tonight Show had played the video the week before.
