What do people named Gerald, Jordan, Tomeka, John, Matt, Donna, Jerry, Lisa, Jeff, and Juan have in common?  They all work on the staff of CNN Student News, and they were all in on the second-biggest practical joke of my career.

I say second-biggest because, as ashamed as I am to admit it, this happened before last December:  I was told we were running a report about something newsworthy, I believed it, and instead our producers showed some goofy bloopers of yours truly.

This time, I thought I was prepared.  This time, I checked the video before the show to make sure there were no surprises.  This time... I was wrong again.

Wanna see what happens when an anchor is duped on his own program?  Watch the last part of Friday's show!
