Thought you might enjoy this little spot from Conan O’Brien. I just found it, but it looks like it ran right before the election.
According to the Washington Post, CNN runs some kind of news service that provides a packaged video news report for local stations around the country – even down to the introduction provided by the local anchors.
Reminds me of a fellow, I can’t recall his name, who used to stand out in the White House area for TV reporters and repeat the same bracing report one time after another.
Except each time, he’d sign off for a different local station – “This is Murray McShmurry reporting for Action News Philadelphia,” followed by the same story and “This is Murray McShmurry reporting for Nine News Now in Los Angeles,” and so forth.
I assume he collected a nice little pot of change for it.
