The US Supreme Court on Wednesday shot down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). The moment the court’s 5-4 decision was reached interns at several news stations sprinted to their respective news posts to providing breaking news updates.
Thankfully through the wonder of Twitter’s Vine app we get to witness the news station interns as they sprint to be the first to report the historical news.
In the first Vine video an intern runs to hand NBC’s Pete Williams a live update (click to play if paused):
In a second Vine filmed by Julie Eckert for NowThis News an intern is once again seen sprinting across the steps of the Supreme Court (click to play if paused):
While interns are rarely noticed and often under-appreciated these Vine’s show just how far they will go to impress their bosses and bring us breaking news.
