Related Videos: How To Watch TV News

A few years ago I watched an eerie compilation of local newscasters from around the United States all reading the same exact script.  I don’t think this is the same video, but it has the same creep-inducing effect.

A comedian-singer named Remy produced a mocking take on televised news (with CNN  as its specific target)  that highlights the inanity of the 24/7 news cycle, with its barrage of unrelated topics and superficial treatment.

Journalist:   What I mean  is / while we’re reading these trivial mysteries/ People are dying, we’re losing our liberty / They’re inside our — what?! Isn’t that banned?
Anchor: Inside our hardware. I understand! Well, they could be inside your phone at this very moment /
Journalist: Yes!
Anchor:  — Pokemon! This town’s p-
Journalist: NO!

    I've only recently stumbled into the reddit wilderness, and the reddit is fun app has migrated to my phone's home screen. I can't remember how I saw the original video, but would not doubt that it surfaced there and then drifted into other parts of the internet!The video I saw and remember had three different stories in the compilation, though…but maybe my memory is just making something already creepy, worse, for memory's sake.

    a deep subject… slidewalks and robotic politicians, time slips and pop religions… i read once that he was convinced the world had ended with the Roman Empire and everything since is imaginary… i think he might have been correct about that…
