(**Satirical Posting**…. aboard the Disney Magic….headed for Los Angeles)
Heard this morning at the morning meeting of NBC Nightly News editorial staff:
Brian Williams, managing editor (to staff): Let’s all bow our heads and say a little prayer to our Secular God who has blessed us today. Had Hurricane Dennis not gone to a Category Four storm…. this would have been a terrible news day for us.
First, we would have had to report about the amazing American economic turnaround taking place under President Bush (Unemployment drops to 5%….lowest since 9/11)
And second, we would have had to devote even more resources today to talk about the attacks on London and Western Civilization by Islamists who we all believe are Freedom Fighters, after all. But when we report on them, sympathy for the War On Terror grows. So we have to be balanced!
So thanks to our Secular God, Edward R. Murrow, for blessing us with a Hurricane today so we can continue our fine tradition of averting the eyes of the public away from stories we don’t want them to know more about. This may also give us a chance to talk about Global Warming….the biggest threat to mankind since the Republican takeover of Congress in 1994.
