Why you should learn German....

A reporter from The Telegraph (a British newspaper) was sent to a German press conference to live blog for his newspaper. Since he couldn't understand a word, the results were hilarious:

The counter example is Pope Benedict's resignation. They held a press conference to announce it, but held it in Latin because it's the Church. They then handed out releases in more commonly spoken languages.

However on reporter in the crowd, Giovanna Chirri, could speak Latin and while everyone else was waiting for the handout, she was on the phone breaking the story.
