Here's How the TV Networks Report the News

Here’s an inside look at the secrets of how the major television news networks package “news” segments. They make it look so easy, as if each segment was scripted and produced by an infinite number of chimpanzees. In fact, hmmm . . . maybe the network news is produced by an infinite number of chimpanzees.

(Warning: There is a bad word 24 seconds into this, for which I apologize, though I am not to blame because I didn’t produce this bit. Blame it on the chimpanzees. And mute it at 24 secs., if need be.)
