MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace Mistakes Soda Can Opening for Gunshots

BY:

During a segment on the YouTube headquarters shooting Tuesday, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace mistook the sound of a soda can opening for gunshots.

Wallace was asking a question of her guest Steve Schmidt when the characteristic pop of a soda can could be heard somewhere on set.

"I think we just heard some gunshots. Should we listen to that for a second, control room?" Wallace asked.

"Not gunshots?" Wallace then said, presumably to a producer in her ear. "Okay. They'll tell us if there's something we need to dip in and listen to."

The incident is only one of many in which MSNBC employees appear to misjudge just how loud gunshots actually are.
