Definitely a fail. Any twit knows what a bear looks like. And I don’t even understand why there was that wierd guy with a bunny mask.

The whole thing looks like a farse. It seems like something from The Onion. I’m hoping this is fake. If not, then the news editor has a great sense of humor.

Okay, I read the TVmunchies link you posted and it explains it all.

Excerpt:
Listen, we’re not going to begrudge anyone their creativity or pluck. This guy is a reporter for a local Fox station in Cleveland. Bad enough, right? But then his bosses say, “Hey, go do a story on the bear.” “What bear?” “Exactly!” It’s like a test. It’s the Kobayashi Maru of local bear stories. How do you visually report on a bear that isn’t there, and, if we’re being honest here, may exist purely in the imaginations of a few lonely Cleveland residents? Go to Kinko’s for bear photo blow-ups, then hit costume shop for bunny suits, that’s how. Kirk out!

I say win, there is no way they would show a man pretending to be a running bear unless they were trying to liven things up. The guy in the rabbit suit was taking things a little too far though.

Overall Score: A-
