"Do you really think there is going to be original reporting every single night, on every single major news story around the world? That would be impossible."
No, it isn`t!! There`s a difference between using the wire for a lead then, composing a story from an investigation and simply repeating a script.

This shows that not only are the stations tuned using the Top 40 Radio formula, the feed wire is tuned, too, which implies no non-local news story should EVER win an authorship award.

It also implies the feed wire is used for product placement.

Do you really think there is going to be original reporting every single night, on every single major news story around the world? That would be impossible. That`s why there is a thing called the Associated Press. A centralized news organization that does all the news gathering, fact checking and sourcing. It`s easy for losers like Limbaugh to make fun of it because all Limbaugh does is spout opinions out of his feeble, drug-impaired brain. He doesn`t have to actually check facts, check sources and write anything.

It`s called churnalism. A PR company sends out a story ( `Scientists show that X is the most Y day of the year...)and lazy media just regurgitates it whole. Obviously the retail sector supports the idea that at Christmas as well as buying crap for others you shuld buy crap for yourself. So they find some strapped academic and get a `study` released showing that most people buy themselves pressies, so why don`t you? and send it out to be mindlessly repeated.

Rush Limbaugh does these montages on a weekly basis. The MSM is an utter joke. Who`s writing the script? I don`t know about this story, but usually it`s the White House (at least for the last 5 years) or whoever is the head of the Democrat party at any given time.

Meh, that`s just the illuminati sending secret coded messages to their minions.

It`s actually not that weird. My guess is that someone probably writes it for them - a media company, a consulting company - someone, and then local stations have a contract with whatever company it may be so that they don`t have to devote manpower to writing clever news hooks.

That was way too long, I quit watching after 3 or 4 of them. Clearly they`re all reading the same script. There are generic stories that get sold to local news stations nationwide, this stuff happens all the time. Most people wouldn`t know it because they are all being read at basically the same time.

The most interesting thing to me is that ALL the networks: ABC, CBS, and Fox, (I didn`t see NBC in there but I might have missed it) are ALL using the same script.

I suspect it`s rigged... mildly amusing.

John Stewart does this a lot. As with Colbert.
