Gotta Watch: TV news run amok

News anchors are trained to remain cool, calm and collected during a live newscast. But when things go wrong, some anchors handle the stressful situation differently than others. You've "gotta watch" how these journalists reacted live on the air when an earthquake rattled a news studio, weather graphics went amok and a raccoon invaded a morning show.
