I am an Assignment Editor: ‘Without me producers would be lost & helpless’

Our sister blog TVNewser found this xtranormal video about a woman who really wanted to be Katie Couric over the holidays. But what about the unsung heroes of the newsroom — namely assignment editors? They get lots of cred in the news world; however, the profession is foreign to the rest of the world. In this xtranormal video, one bear explains to another what an assignment editor does:

White Bear: “I’m a counsellor, a psychotherapist, a rabbi, and an expert at clearing paper jams from the copier and printer.”

Brown Bear: “Clearing paper jams from the copier and printer? So you’re an intern?”
