CNN And The Hollywood Backlot

the eagle has landed and is crapping on my shoes...

Once again, I am transfixed by television news coverage of our little "war". They've actually got videophones along with the troops pushing into the country and it almost looks scripted.

Please feel free to let those rumours of the landing on the moon being staged on a Hollywood set run free...the moment a CNN journalist is shot in the head whilst making a report from his or her videophone, is the moment I will believe that there is no script.

I'm sure no one wants that to happen but in the words of news execs everywhere, "it makes good television". Bah.
