The news show was broadcasting a LIVE courthouse scene - the media clustered outside with their mics and vans and cameras, oh my! The headline ticking across this scene in the lower part of the TV screen was:
LIVE! BREAKING NEWS: Brittany Spears about to arrive at courthouse.
I don’t know what station I was watching – MSNBC, or CNN, or FOX - (I know it wasn’t a PBS station, nor the BBC, both stations that would not sport such footage, nor spend one jot of time covering Brittany’s travails).
As God as my witness, I vow to renew my commitment – to just say NO TO TV NEWS.
I’d unplug the set completely, but it’s October, for cryin’ out loud – gotta watch the Series!
