THIS OCCURRED BEFORE APRIL FOOL’S
From the estimable Alan Light [quoting news from the Late Night web site]: ‘Monday night, David Letterman ran a clip of the President giving a speech March 20 in Orlando. Behind him stood a lad who was obviously bored silly. It is very funny. So funny, in fact, that CNN replayed the clip today during their broadcasts. But, but, but, the first time is was shown, CNN anchorwoman Daryn Kagan reported that the White House said the clip was a total fake, it was merely the Late Show having fun with their ability to edit and do TV tricks. Letterman immediately responded that what the CNN reporter said was an out-and-out lie. A couple of hours later, CNN anchor person Kyra Phillips reported that the kid was at the speech but not where the Late Show had him. Dave again makes the claim, ‘That’s an out and out absolute 100% lie. That kid was exactly where we said he was.’ CNN finally said it was a simple error and that there had been no call from the White House, which makes you wonder just how the folks at CNN think the news is supposed to work. Anyway, if you have Real Player, click here.’
☞ Let the record show that Democrats can be just as boring as Republicans, so I do not suggest that there is any larger point here.
