TODAY Show this morning. Captive audience, me.
Newsbreak with Savannah Guthrie (SG).
Very short segment about, iirc, Newt Gingrich/Republican primary race: maybe 15 seconds, film footage with SG voiceover.
Very short segment about President Obama’s speech y’day in Kansas: maybe 15 seconds, film footage with SG voiceover.
Segment about Alec Baldwin getting tossed from his flight for refusing to turn off his iPad: several minutes, including interviews by an on-site reporter with 3 other passengers.
I realize morning shows specialize in infotainment, but this was the “news” portion.
It’s styrofoam for the mind.
