Default More Commercials - To Pay For More Commercials

9-14-2018

They say that talking heads do not come cheap these days, and every time that a national emergency rears its ugly little nostrils, the media networks have got to prove the wisdom behind this logic! “God, what would these newsmen and newswomen do if someone, somewhere, wasn’t hurting severely in one way or another?”

Of course it must always be remembered that the poor slob who is reporting onsite does not have the niceties as do those who are sequestered, warm and secure, within their studios, many miles away from the actual scene of the mayhem! And this became apparent (once again) this morning when I watched “Hurricane Florence” ripping away at portions of The Carolinas!

As a matter of fact, and even though “Florence” is now registered as a “Category 1 Blow Hard”, for those of you who have never had to whether one of these storms, or those heroic news folks who report on them from the other side of “Our Country” (and this with a makeup artist and a shot of bourbon close at hand), it is sought of like reporting on a war from some barroom stool that is half a world away from the actual muzzle blasts, at least in my own far-removed opinion!
