A news crew’s apparent attempt to show how easy it is to get potentially harmful items past TSA backfired just a little bit recently:

From NJ.com:

At least seven members of a cable television crew were arrested after they tried to sneak a fake explosive device through a security checkpoint at Newark Liberty International Airport, the Transportation Security Administration said Thursday.

A law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation said that the team was filming for cable network CNBC, which is based in Englewood Cliffs. The TSA did not release the names of the people they said were arrested, and the Port Authority only said that it was investigating the incident.

Well that media attempted gotcha certainly failed.

It’s ok when THEY do it, or something.

No kidding!

And we probably ain’t seen nuthin’ yet.
