While MTV is having adventures in instantaneity, New York 1 is announcing that no rain is expected as I sit here looking at the raindrops brightening the black paint of the fire escape at my window. This particular reel was probably recorded hours ago.
Even more annoying, it’s playing on Headline News, where I turn not for local news, but for all the news. If I want NY1, I’ll turn to NY1. Dunno… feels like cross-promotion to me, not a helpful service.
