Andy Rooney Moment of the Day

When did news broadcasts start spending more time telling you what was coming up than reporting the actual stories?

"Hi, we're your perky morning news team with this morning's top headlines. Two men arrested for mopery! That story and more coming up. Man loses goat on freeway! That story at nine thirty-four. Woman cuts hair with bread knife! That story coming up at nine thirty-five. Astros lose again. Jack Batboy has that story at nine forty. Sam Legalese is live at the county courthouse with a report on the on-going battery trial of business executive Bill Bigbucks at nine forty-six. And now our top story about the two men arrested for mopery, but first Stella Line with traffic and weather together!"
