Live news shows and pranks go hand in hand. But come on, guys! Not during a tragedy!
This MSNBC anchor was covering the crash of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 when a call came through from what sounded like a legitimate witness- at least until he invoked Howard Stern's name.
But the most shocking thing is that the anchor doesn't seem to be paying enough attention to know she's being pranked!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the shocking live TV moment.

To be fair, who ISN’T in love with Rachel Maddow??
She’s gotta be the most gorgeous genius on ALL of cable news!
Sorry, Ronan Farrow…
Well, it sounds like Ellen Page DEFINITELY likes what she sees in the MSNBC host!
Recently out of the closet Ellen dropped by Late Night with Seth Meyers this week, and the two were discussing her role in the upcoming film adaptation of Queen & Country, a spy graphic novel of which Seth is a huge fan!
But Meyers also knows that Miz Maddow happens to be a gigantic fan too!
Upon hearing this tidbit, Ellen said to Seth:

Cable news has been dominated by around-the-clock coverage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 this week.
And Morning Joe anchor Mika Brzezinski has had enough of it!
Earlier this week, she stopped her co-hosts in the middle of their report on the missing airliner to slam them for speculating on unfounded info and theories!
Oh em gee!
During a round table discussion, in which Joe Scarborough suggested the plane might actually be somewhere OTHER than the Indian Ocean, Mika interrupted and said:

On no he didn't!
We reported earlier how Alec Baldwin got the pink slip from MSNBC for his homophobic slurs, and now Alec has come to grips with the only person responsible for this:
himself the VP of GLAAD?
In a recent interview, Alec talked about who he thought was really behind his talk show's cancellation:

Alec Baldwin has been fired.
MSNBC have reportedly made suspension of the 30 Rock star's new talk show Up Late permanent. According to inside sources, the axe was wielded in part due to poor ratings but mostly as a result of this latest homophobic slur scandal.
The news may not come as a surprise given the bad press Alec's latest outburst has received.
He himself saw this coming, referring to the possibility in his blog. But we're sure that doesn't take the sting away completely. Getting fired always stinks, even when we earn it.
We hope at least Alec will take with him the lesson that things we say in anger are no less hurtful just because they weren't thought out.
And if you're going to come into people's homes every night to talk, you better make sure you watch what you say.

The fallout from Alec Baldwin's paparazzi run-in might be even worse than anyone imagined!
MSNBC just suspended the hot-tempered TV host for TWO WEEKS following his alleged use of super insensitive, homophobic slurs when dealing with the paparazzi earlier this week.
Which is completely understandable, especially considering the entire incident was caught on camera. Surely that's bad for business.
Alec issued a statement earlier, apologizing for his behavior. He said:

Say hello to TV's hunkiest new host!
Ronan Farrow is on the tip of everyone's tongue for a variety of reasons. He's dashingly handsome. His mom is Mia Farrow. His dad is Woody Allen. Or maybe his dad is actually Frank Sinatra.
Either way, he's taking his talents to TV!! Earlier this week MSNBC announced Ronan would be hosting his own political-oriented TV show!
If you though the delicious dude was just eye-candy, you clearly haven't been paying attention. In addition to making us all weak in the knees, Mia's baby boy is a Rhodes Scholar, a published author, worked for President Obama on foreign policy, and also advised Hillary Clinton!
His show, in fact, will be super political! He's hoping to get the youth of America interested in the state of their own democracy!
