Cable News Network is celebrating its 35th anniversary. From the day Ted Turner launched his innovative 24-hour news channel on June 1, 1980, CNN has been an early adopter of media technology, which often could have used a beta test before going on air. And then there’s the inevitable on-air mistakes, falls, photobombs, giggle fits, and unforeseeable circumstances that are now part of history.
Of course, these are far from the only bloopers. A comprehensive video would be very long. These are the ones CNN itself considered the funniest. It’s also a reminder of how long ago 1980 was when you get a look at the hairstyles and sets. -via Daily Picks and Flicks
