This Reporter Gets a Little Too Hands On

They say common sense is not so common.

That rings true with former CBS Sacramento 13 feature reporter Angel Cardenas.

Cardenas was fired after an on-air segment showed him damaging classic Ford Thunderbirds and jumping on top of an exhibition car before the Sacramento International Auto show.

Of course CBS Sacramento received massive backlash from car enthusiasts for Cardenas' lack of common sense.

Check out the entire segment.

There were bad signs even before he manhandled the classic cars.

Angel Cardenas starts his feature while wearing an untucked shirt and a loose tie. He is clearly showing a lack of professionalism with his choice in attire.

He starts looking around the showroom and decides to get a closer "look" at the classic cars.

He jumps into multiple Ford Thunderbirds (which he says they are off limits) and then he dings one of the classic cars with another car door.

Cardenas seeks out a representative at the show and is given a run down on the new 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid. He then makes his way to the car on a rotating platform and jumps on top of it to pose.

Thankfully someone off-camera tells him to get off.

For a guy who prides himself on being a professional, he clearly lacks the definition of what that actually means.
