Flight 292: Real Reality TV

By Brian 

LA Times: “Los Angeles has now provided Fox News and CNN and MSNBC with two gloriously self-contained stories, with happy endings, with which to cut away from endless coverage of hurricanes Katrina and Rita.”

Aaron Brown on NewsNight: “I’m struck tonight, again, as I am I suppose in some ways every day, by the ability of television to draw us together. Whether it’s the horror and the misery we’ve seen in the Gulf, or the relief that we saw in Los Angeles, it was television that connected the country again.”

And back to the LA Times: “This is the week when the broadcast networks are rolling out their new shows, but for sheer suspense and human drama it’s the news you keep flipping back to.”
