Does this bug anyone else? You’re watching the morning network news, whether it’s Fox or NBC or what have you, and while the talking heads are reporting the news or doing the chit-chat, some utter moron is standing outside the window, cell phone in hand, waving like a fool. “Tune into Katie Couric! Do you see me? Hi! Right here! Do you see me? I’m on TV!”
To their credit, I have seen curtains drawn sometimes, and during an interview with mothers of fallen 9/11 firefighters there were no wavers (maybe they were kept away?) but I can’t see the attraction to this. I’m waiting for someone to come up and flash them, or hold up some inappropriate sign.
I can’t understand why the networks think this is a good idea. It’s distracting and annoying.
