Good thing the geniuses at the KTLA Morning News didn’t allow a true and live Perils Of Pauline story interfere with important featurettes like the Sports Lodge and Two Lesbians In Pasadena Bellyaching About Prop. 8 – and they had the bellies to ache, you betchum.
At about 8:15, the KTLA copter guy found a wrecked car precipitously dangling over the edge of a cliff, supported by only a tree and a 74-year-old victim trapped inside. As the brave firefighters and rescue people worked feverishly to extract the victim and prevent the further slide of a car into a deep reservoir where the victim would certainly suffer even more…KTLA went to Sports Lodge!
They returned to the breaking news and the rescue continued with firefighters attempting to get the victim out…on live TV…and KTLA went to Lesbians!
While the victim was finally extracted, both KTLA and KTTV which had picked up the coverage about a half hour later…went to Long Commerical Breaks! By the time all of this important stuff was concluded, the man had been extracted, but KTLA and KTTV missed showing the live…NEWS!
But we did get the uninterrupted Sports Lodge, Lesbians and Commercials…no problem, you betchum!
