Nomination For Hero Badge

British Columbia Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) spokesperson was giving a press briefing via live-stream on a double murder investigation. Somebody left the “cat filter” on, hilarity ensued.

I always thought podiums were there to eliminate that last minute worry,”is my fly zipped?” Now there is something else to worry about. I can think of some press briefings where the cat filter is appropriate. Probably not a double homicide.

It’s tough being a Public Information Officer (PIO). No worries about being found dead on the side of the road, like a street cop. Instead it is mean reporters, bad hair days and now, cat filters.
