Floods in the news

I love Polish news programs. This week I’ve been watching TVP’s Piotr Kraśko bestriding the floods like a news colossus.

Wednesday: You can tell it’s a flood because I’m standing in water.

Thursday: I ride the mighty fire engine.

Friday: Fear. He has none.


Straight face. She knows how to keep one.

    Hang on. That bottom photo has a major news studio in Sandomierz, and the reporter standing in the floods in Warsaw. Shurely shome mishtake?

    Piotr Krasko is a great reporter. His Hurricane Katrina LIVE report was epic. Too bad i can’t find it on the internet anymore.

    He looks like a collosus as he maintains his pose. In fact, looking like that, he should have just stood along the Wisła with one hand up, and the other remaining on his hip, shouting “Thou shalt not pass!”

    Maybe I have Lord of the Rings on my mind with Arwen pulling rivers around and Gandalf’s booming voice…

    You can see the lady reporter is just pissed off she has to get wet whereas Piotr is relishing it. He’s the Bear Grylls of TVP1. Surprised he’s not yanking fish out of the water and biting their heads off but then with his left hand glued to his hip he’d probably drop the microphone.

    It’s called “new and improved geography”.

    They should employ Dziwisz, he could walk ON water.

    I almost feel sorry for Kraśko. To be directed to local news of such a low importance as our flood after the internationally acclaimed Katrina!

    Anderson Cooper eat your heart out!

    Seems somebody like the picture so much they nicked it:


  13. […] Before returning definitively from Central Europe, Island1 of Polandian shows us an intrepid Polish TV reporter showing off his waders at a variety of waterlogged locations in Floods in the news. […]
