A slew of American TV news correspondents have descended upon the hospital in London where the Duchess of Cambridge is going into labor. The impending royal birth led all the morning shows today, and correspondents have been doing liveshots outside the hospital throughout the day on cable news.
Yet, the BBC’s own correspondent on the scene, Simon McCoy, does not seem nearly as interested in the baby as his American counterparts.
“God help us if this ends up being a long labor,” McCoy quipped, reading from a text message on-air. “Until [the birth], we are going to be speculating about this royal birth, with no facts,” he added dryly.
