Via LA Observed, I discovered that many of the talking heads at KTLA keep, uh, blogs.
LAO notes that the blogs aren’t updated all that frequently (not that surprising, considering that the newsfolks are probably busy on STORMWATCH!!11 and GATORWATCH!!1!!!!!!!11!) and includes this gem from the brief-commentary-master himself, Hal Fishman:
A WORD TONIGHT ABOUT… BRITNEY SPEARS. LAST NIGHT, TV NEWS PROGRAMS, AND LATE NIGHT TALK SHOWS, SKEWERED MS. SPEARS FOR A PICTURE OF HER DRIVING HER SUV WITH HER 4 MONTH OLD SON ON HER LAP. NOW, I’M NOT SUGGESTING THIS IS A GOOD AND SAFE PRACTICE. BUT, THIS WAS ONE STILL PICTURE. SHE SAID SHE WAS TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM THE PAPARAZZI BECAUSE OF A HORRIFYING, FRIGHTFUL ENCOUNTER. THE PICTURE-TAKERS DENIED THIS CHARGE AND SAID ALL WAS PEACE AND TRANQUILLITY. SELF-APPOINTED SEAT BELT INSPECTORS ARE CLAIMING SHE SHOULD BE TICKETED AND CHARGED WITH CHILD ENDANGERMENT, AND THE FACT SHE’S STILL FREE IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW CELEBRITIES CAN GET AWAY WITH LAW-BREAKING. THIS WAS ONE STILL PICTURE. WE DON’T KNOW ALL THE CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING THE INCIDENT…
I think I speak for everyone when I say that if we don’t all come together and buy Hal Fishman a keyboard with an unstuck caps lock key, the terrorists have already won.
