What Fresh Hell Is This?

I Grew Up In Connecticut

It's usually a rational place to be.  Great weather (mostly) and great pizza (most definitely) but it's with a profound sense of befuddled bemusement that I post this from the Huffingtonpost:
Connecticut's Fox affiliate covered an International Women's Day march in Hartford, but the cameraman seemed to think that the assignment was less about focusing on the achievements of women and the struggle they've overcome, and more about pretty much just some lady's boobs. For a good 13 seconds. And that's it.
And then there's the video:

Um...guys?  Who thought that was a good idea?  Especially since, according to HuffPo:
[T]his appeared to be no accident -- when they did a shorter version of the segment later in the hour, they reran the exact same footage. [emphasis added.]
To their credit,I guess, TIC tweeted:
FOX CT apologizes for today’s file footage error. We will continue to recognize great contributions of women in CT and around the world.
But the New Haven Pizza is still good, at least we have that.

Well I happen to think breasts are quite an achievment

Sounded like the woman reading the copy was watching the footage too and couldn't believe it herself -- you can hear it in her voice.

It's the producer of that segment who approved the use of that B-roll who should be fired.
