: This is awesome; it's a video that features a group of American reporters who have a mixture of intellectual and physical disabilities.
They met over 10 years ago at a summer camp and decided to start a comedy news broadcast called ‘How's Your News'.
In this episode, they travel across America in a tour bus from Austin Texas to Louisiana, to New Orleans and New York.
Whilst travelling across the country, they visited a prison rodeo at Louisiana State Penitentiary, where they interviewed prisoners about the rodeo; with some funny reactions once they realized they were speaking to convicted murderers.
They freestyle rapped with some musicians in New Orleans, I love Sue's lyrics, very funny.
They interviewed bands in Austin Texas at a South By Southwest music festival. They close their night in Austin Texas by singing a song that one of them wrote about New York and they don't sound too bad.
They bumped into D-list actress Kathy Griffin in New York. They also had a quick chat with Bill Hader, who's appeared on the hit show, Saturday Night Live and movies, such as Knocked Up and Superbad.

to view the video, it goes for 8 minutes but it's definitely worth a look at.
They poke fun at themselves and have so much fun doing their interviews. I think all reporters could learn something from the ‘How's Your News' crew.
