By now, you know about CNN's idea that backfired. They decided to add another dimension to the DNC coverage and mike Don Mischer as he directed the post-speech hoopla. Well, in a classic Spinal Tap Stonehenge moment, 90% the balloons got stuck in the rafters and Don did what any of us would do - drop several hundred F-bombs. Live. On CNN. The Most Trusted Name in News®.
Our question of course, is: Why? What was the purpose of this? It's a horrible insult to the audience. We certainly know it's staged. Why not let the viewers enjoy the moment and see it as if they were there? Nope - CNN has to to something clever! It's an event that happens once every four years, so let's make it special!
Wow. Did they ever. Note to CNN: The XFL tried this with the coaches' communicators. How're THEY doing these days?
