Reporter Vs. Marine: Humvee Rollover Challenge

When the Marines head into battle they are prepared for anything that comes their way and humvee rollover training is all the evidence you need of that.

It only take one strike to flip an upright humvee upside down, and every Marine that rides into battle needs to know what to do (and more importantly what not to do) when that happens.

In the latest episode of “Reporter Vs. Marine” Ford Springer and Richie McGinniss of The Daily Caller, and Leah Jessen of The Daily Caller News Foundation, participated in the rollover training and, as expected, couldn’t quite handle it how the Marines do.

“Reporter Vs.” is a web series where TheDC puts its reporters into the shoes of professionals who face adversity that is unimaginable to a pencil pushing member of the fourth estate. At most news outlets, reporters might be afraid to try, and fail, at a new task. But not at TheDC. We have no problem filming our reporters’ fails and then broadcasting it to the rest of the world. If there is such a thing as blue collar journalism, it would probably look something like The Daily Caller’s “Reporter Vs.” series.
