Deaths, Disasters, Scandals… networks choosing an actor and model to anchor the nightly news. Don’t worry about being a true journalist, just smile, look good, and air that dirty laundry. Increase ratings with Intrusive press coverage: John Belushi (drug over-dose) Natalie Wood (surely Robert Wagner murdered her) subtle innuendos, callous brutal details of the plane crash, relishing every crumb of the OJ Simpson trial, and Bill Clinton’s juicy lies, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Don Henley was disgusted with negative and sensationalist news and wrote this 1982 hit song. On the set, need that dirty laundry!
