* In 1982, the anchors of KOOL-TV (now KSAZ-TV) in Phoenix were held at gunpoint by a man who wanted "to prevent WorldWarIII". After holding them hostage for several hours, he then forced them to interrupt programming around 9:30 PM to make anchor Bill Cose read a statement by him for about 20 minutes with a gun pointed at his belly the entire time. It included such [[InsaneTrollLogic gems]] as instructing Music/JohnnyCash to tell Queen Elizabeth II to evacuate London before it was nuked by {{UsefulNotes/Argentina}}, that Creator/RonaldReagan's son Ricky (who doesn't exist by the way; his sons are named Micheal and Ron) was being brainwashed by Islam, and that Phoenix would be invaded by an army of ants.

* In Libya during the Arab Spring in 2010, NBC's Richard Engel, in rebel-held territory, was examining a rebel gun when mortar fire rang out and a shell landed less than fifty yards from where Engel was crouched. (Engel, a veteran military embed who had spent the previous fifteen-odd ''years'' mostly living in the area, hit the dirt out of reflex -- but that didn't stop his dear friend RachelMaddow from rather unhappily pointing out that every time he pulls that sort of stunt, the people who love him (including herself) worry ''a lot''.)
