Christ, what did they do hand a out a mass email to all the newscasters in the nation?? I couldn't help but laugh a bit hearing them all repeat it.
This guy figured it out:
they dont have to be original anymore because most of the audience is brain-dead anyway. they just have to be pretty and do something so people think they are broadcasting live. i bet most of them would not recognize their local mayor if he was sitting next to them on the air.
This has been the case for years. Much local news is just a subscription to a news service that gives them to right to present the stories as their own.
Often they do "interviews" where the local newscaster was not even present. They just edit in the local person asking the questions, then show the "answers" from the person as if the local station went out and did an interview. They will even hilariously add in reaction shots from the newscaster, as if he/she is hearing the answer for the first time.
If it's a non-local story and in Q/A format from remote locations, odds are they're doing that.
