Ah, local Los Angeles television news, how I miss thee

Sitting in my hotel room the night before the 2008 PDC, I'm watching the Los Angeles local news, and the field reporter just said, "The police say this is an isolated incident, but it could happen anywhere."

    How many car chases have they shown so far?

  2. James Schend says:

    Last time I was in LA, as John suggested, the news… in fact, the entire local broadcasting apparatus, was seized to a stop by a 5-hour car chase. Car chases aren’t even slightly exciting, and yet there were multiple channels pre-empting shows to show them.

    LA is crazy-land.

    "LA is crazy-land."

    LA is la-la-land.

  4. Tyler says:

    LA is actually a rather sane place.  The local news is just a tad sensationalist and doesn’t have a scrap of dignity or journalistic integrity.

    My first experience of America was trying to find my hotel in down town LA. What an experience :)

  6. In other news:

    Police say it’s safe to walk down the street but a plane could drop on you AT ANY MINUTE! News at 11:00.

    The last time I was in LA (August) I was watching the news with a friend before we went to the gym, and told him we would leave after I saw a story on the news that was not about a murder.

    I waited for about 5 stories.

    The news on channels 11 and 13 (not coincidentally, the stations owned by Fox) are like that pretty much most of the time.

    Raymond, are you going to be in one of the lounges some time doing book signings? :)
