The Twinkie Defense?

Seriously? A bus bombing in Israel and FOX is doing a segment on do-it-yourself twinkies?

  1. The 14th most important media reporter, actually reports something interesting:

    Fox News Correspondent Douglas Kennedy Acquitted of Child Endangerment Charges (TVNewser)

    A judge in Westchester County, N.Y. acquitted Fox News correspondent Douglas Kennedy of child endangerment and harassment charges Tuesday. On Jan. 7, Kennedy was involved in a confrontation with two maternity ward nurses who tried to stop him from leaving with his newborn son.

  2. Not really a surprise. F&F is a ‘Today/GMA’ style morning show that happens to be on a news network. Cooking segments, celebrity interviews and pop culture stories are just as important as news stories.

    Morning Joe does about 80% political discussion and fills the rest with promotional interviews (usually in the last hour), and regular weather, sports, and business segments. CNN concentrates on breaking news and political discussion.

    Each network plays to their core audience so it’s no surprise F&F stayed with the Twinkies segment while CNN went with the bus bombing. Each network is doing the kind of story it does best.

  3. God, Fritz, I’m impressed. Was that really you?

  4. Did they not report the story at all, or just not at that moment?

  5. I’m going to take a guess and say not at that moment. I’m sure they covered it at some point…either prior or after…

    This was a non-story from the start. I have no idea why it should be noted by the media blogs in the first place.

  7. If he were found quality, you might have had a Twinkie.

  8. “guilty” changed to “quality” by spell checker.

    A lot of people were interested by the Kennedy case. Authority run amuck.
