As we were walking around Philadelphia this weekend, I couldn't help taking a picture of an ad for the local news show. I've never seen the show, but the formula is so predictable. Sheinelle reads the news about fires, rapes, abductions, and mistakes made by social workers and other government employees. Mike's job is to report the humorous and the weird stories. He throws in goofy jokes, and Sheinelle rolls her eyes at him.
When I taught media politics class, I had a mandatory assignment to watch one local news show, because none of the students had ever seen one before. It was really no loss.
