WATCH: The 13 Craziest Cable News Moments of the Summer

Things tend to go off the rails on cable news when summer rolls around. People go on vacation, stop paying as much attention and usually there’s less actual “news” happening.

But of course, that didn’t stop America’s cable news networks for airing some absolutely outrageous segments on a long list of ridiculous subjects.

Now that Labor Day has come and gone, kids are getting back to school and Congress is getting back in session, here’s a look back at highlights (or low-lights, depending on your point of view) from one crazy summer of cable news.
