25 local news anchors reading the exact same awful intro script joke. Two thoughts:
1) What is actually going on here? Are they just reading press release copy on air?
2) Conan O’Brien is becoming our favorite press critic.
This is exactly why I don’t watch local news. This is not news. This is advertising disguised as news, and the news directors are not disclosing this fact to their viewers, even though it is in the middle of a news broadcast.
