Nonverbal Communication Analysis No. 2961: KTVA Reporter Quits on-air, Drops F-Bomb and Reveals Herself as Owner of Alaska Cannabis Club - Body Language Tells (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Just after lets the World know she is the owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club - and in the moment right before she dropped the F-bomb and quit, KTVA reporter Charlo Greene displays a nonverbal cluster of fear.

During the 0:13 second mark, Ms. Greene's eye lids opened wider than her baseline - particularly on her right. Both of her mouth corners also pulled backwards (laterally) baring primarily her lower teeth. The reporter's neck muscles (platysma and sternocleidomastoids) also can be seen to tighten up momentarily. Her eye nonverbals were longer in duration (about 1.5 seconds) than her mouth and neck manifestations - which here are brief enough here to be considered microexpressions

The splaying of her fingers on her left hand is also consistent with a momentary heightened adrenaline state.

In response, the news anchor's right eyebrow elevates - signaling disbelief - yet her eyelids (also primarily her right) also open wider than her baseline - again manifesting fear. Her mouth is configured in mild fear as well.

What other classic nonverbals do you see displayed in this video?
