Hi, I'm Martine Croxall, and I am invisible.

This BBC News anchor accidentally stood in front of the wrong camera Monday night, so viewers were left staring at an empty chair.

She handled it very well, however, and instructed everyone to "pretend like you haven't noticed."

Live TV of the Day: Fox News, CNN Reporters Face Angry Protesters in Ferguson

Immediately following a grand jury's decision Monday night not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, protests erupted all over the country from New York to Seattle.

In Ferguson, Missouri, where the original shooting took place, violence escalated fairly quickly with rioters looting and setting fire to local businesses.

Both Fox News and CNN were there in the middle of the action to report live on the chaos, and as you might expect, things got pretty crazy.

CNN's Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo were near the police HQ in the city when cops launched a tear gas canister in their direction forcing them off screen (see video above).

Lemon also was paid a visit from this guy, who interrupted his report to drop an F-Bomb about the network.

CNN's Stephanie Elam got trash thrown at her outside a McDonald's, and while clearly irritated, she took it all in stride saying that the tosser was "just having fun."


Things were worse for CNN reporter Sara Sidner who was hit in the head with a rock while in the middle of her broadcast about a fire at a nearby store, but she kept on reporting and told Jake Tapper "I've been hit with much worse in my day."


And lastly, Fox News briefly turned into Fawkes News, when a man wearing a Guy Fawkes mask appeared to knock out the camera during a report from Steve Harrigan before the connection cut out.

From WFTV:

An intoxicated New Smyrna Beach man wanted Taco Bell, but employees wouldn't serve him because he was on a bicycle in the drive-through lane, authorities said.

They called New Smyrna Beach police when Gabriel Harris, 33, refused to leave after placing an order at the drive-through window as the restaurant was closing just after 3 a.m. on Sunday.

His is the human condition, the struggle we all face. Bless you, drunk-munchies cyclist guy.
