1. Religious controversy
News anchors should do their best to stay away from speaking about other parties’ religious interests. However, during a 2013 interview, Lauren Green, an interviewer from Fox News asked a controversial question to Reza Aslan. Green asked Aslan as to why the religious scholar wrote a book on the founder of Christianity in spite of being a practising Muslim.

2. Cannabis over television career
Charlo Greene, who was a reporter of KTVA, quit her television career on air when she was reporting about the Alaska Cannabis Club. What had that got to do with her job? She happened to be the owner of that club! She went on to comment on air that she was giving up her television career because she wanted to fight for legalising marijuana in Alaska.

3. Terrorist Fist
During 2008, Barack and Michelle Obama were enjoying after an election rally by pumping their fists. Everything went on well until a Fox News anchor, ED Hill chose to report the incident. She commented that the bumping of fists looked like a pound and a terrorist fist jab. She also went on to say that each one understood different views from the fist bumping action of the power couple. Her terrorist comment didn’t go down well with many and she was trolled on social media. Later, she apologised for her remark.

4. Very cheap content
Glenn Black once had an attractive model, Deena on his talk show. When trying to chat with her, he was speaking about scandals involving American topless models and how they are being photographed without their knowledge. As he asked Deena for her opinion, he casually asked her to stop by his office as he had time and a camera with him! How creepy can that get? Though he clarified that he was just joking, his cheap comments earned a black mark for him in his TV career.

5. Racism in its full form
During one of her shows, Megyn Kelly told all the kids watching her show that in spite people rallying for a black Santa, there was no doubt that Santa Claus is definitely white. She went on to state that a black Santa concept would work well for a debate, but not so in reality. The world was shocked, to say the least, about her racist comments.
