Pickled Politics » US news vs British 24 news
What strikes me about American broadcast news media is how great they are at repackaging the same stories over the course of the day in different ways to keep you hooked. You see, BBC News 24 or Sky News make this assumption that we watch them only for 15 min - 30 min bursts. Watch either for an hour and you can see the headlines, stories and transcripts repeat themselves. To avoid an overwhelming feeling of deja vu, you have to switch off after that.Erm, yeah. And the problem with that is what exactly? US news coverage is better because they spice up old news to make it more palatable to sad fucks with nothing better to do all day than watch 24 hour news channels. WTF? Read the whole bizarre piece written, I suspect, after someone slipped something into Sunny's drink.
