PBS Reporter Can't Find His Feet During Live Report At Pitchfork Showcase

Steve Goldbloom, a reporter for PBS, is shown being throttled in the pit during a live broadcast at Pitchfork's Show No Mercy showcase at SXSW held at Mohawk. When the news caster goes live for a report, this reporter can't quite find his balance to give the scoop. He makes the mistake of trying to do something other than smash into other metal heads during this performance by a thrashing mad, Power Trip band. Watch the video embedded below.

Brian is right, it is fake. According to a friend who was at the show, the journalist conducted a jokey interview with Power Trip afterward.
