Poppy Harlow was reporting on terrorism and U.S. foreign policy when she began to stutter then slur her words. All of a sudden there was only silence on the air; the national broadcast to briefly cut out and went to a break.

Viewers were questioning what happened on Twitter and Harlow responded and thanked everyone for their concern.
