Baloo warning Mowgli about the Bandar-log in “Kaa’s Hunting” from The Jungle Books by Rudyard Kipling
Yesterday afternoon I saw a very short teaser ad for one of the network news programs. I’m 99 and 44/100ths percent sure it was CBS. The teaser went something like this:
[Pictures of Donald Sterling and V. Stiviano on the screen]
Voiceover: Frank talk from the woman in the Sterling scandal
[Picture of Afghans moving rubble by hand on the screen]
A deadly earthquake hits Afghanistan
In what sane world is anything about the Donald Sterling matter considered as newsworthy as - based on placement, more newsworthy than - the death of hundreds of people in an earthquake?
