News anchor mistakes pile of paper for an Apple iPad on air
Unfortunately for McCoy, what he thought was an Apple iPad was actually a stack of printing paper. We're not sure of the exact moment when the 51 year old veteran broadcaster realized that he was holding paper in his hand instead of his tablet, but McCoy never made a move to put down the paper and pick up the iPad. Luckily for him, the tablet is only a prop and isn't really used in the presentation of the news.
Viewers sent out tweets questioning why McCoy was hoilding printing paper instead his tablet. A BBC spokesman made a statement explaining the mistake and all was right with the world again. Well, except for a number of viewers who couldn't understand why the new iOS 7 update wouldn't appear on their own stack of printing paper.

It must have been premium material paper!
I don't know what's funnier - that he mistook a pile of paper for an iPad, or that the iPad is used only as a prop.

I honestly can't even.
Just the way he holds the paper makes me laugh.

Does he usually use the iPad on air, or does he just hold it during the broadcast?

That's a mighty thick iPad he thought he must have been holding.
This, kiddies, is what happens when you don't have your coffee in the morning.
