"Do you want to hear a scary story?"
What I find especially delightful about this is that for some reason this K-Strass yo-yo segment was supposed to tie in with "the importance of being green and environmentally friendly."
Congratulations, station in Wisconsin. You've just single-handedly discredited all television news coverage of the "green movement" and being "environmentally friendly." Seriously, if the people who run these local news stations can't be bothered to do a simple google search of this guy, and present him on the air as a yo-yo expert, why should you be trusted with anything? Are you going to be able to cover real, important stuff, like the cap and trade bill? Windmills? Solar energy? The Gulf Oil Spill? Will you be able to cover those things with any credibility whatsoever?
He is a known prankster. He is a performance artist. He is making you all look like fools. Because you are fools!
As I wrote back in May of this year (he's been pranking these stations all year and they still haven't caught on!),
Kenny Strasser is more than just a great performance artist. He is a great American. Thank you, K Strass, for exposing television news for the cesspool of incompetence that it is! You're my hero for the week!And because local news stations still haven't caught on, Mr. Strasser has been named my hero for the week an unprecedented second time in the same year!
Actually, when you think about it, it's kind of sad. TV news really, really sucks.
But long live K-Strass!
