NBC: Staging the News

NBC's idea of "news" seems to be taking Muslims to NASCAR events to see "if they attract any discriminatory comments or actions while being filmed."

Fascinating that NBC seems to have a pre-set notion that bigots might be easy to find at NASCAR...the more so since NBC is one of the networks which carries NASCAR races. Does NBC Sports know about the NBC News division's deliberate attempt to generate bad publicity for the sport?

Captain's Quarters points out that NBC News will have a "powerful motivation" to push for a staged "confrontation" of some sort that they can actually use on their show.

The wonderful thing is that in this day and age, the networks will usually be caught when they engage in "created news."

Meanwhile, over at ABC, word is that the news division is worried more anti-Bush emails by suspended news producer John Green may exist.

This from the same network and SHOW that rigged explosives under a car in an "expose" on the car's safety record.

Good memory!! You'd sure think they'd be leery of doing something like this. TTYS, Laura
