More reporters standing in water

I know what you’re thinking. No, Arkansas does not have a law about wearing life jackets in boats.

    Those two pictures lead to additional questions:

    First picture:

    1. Is the cameraman also in a boat?

    1. Again out of concern for the unseen camera operator, are they in a boat or are they also waist deep in water?

    2. How long before one network decides that to really show how bad the flood is the reporters have to be under water?

    Second picture: Man this water is cold. And I think there’s a fish in my waders.
