Ah, live TV. You've gotta love it, especially when there's a blooper that seems like it should have been easily avoidable.

During last night's (7/4) KFYR news, anchor Nina Carter was using her cell phone while a Mandan 4th of July parade package was running.

Unfortunately for Carter, the camera mistakenly cut back to her too early, catching her on the phone.

In Carter's defense, it's not her fault that the camera came back to her too early. I'm sure she knew exactly how much time she had during the video segment, leading her to think she'd have time to answer a few texts or send out a tweet.

This is definitely NOT the worst thing that Carter could have done while on camera, though. Let us not forget the infamous AJ Clemente F-bomb.
