Branding The Terror

boom boom boom boom - hear the horsemen approaching!With the recent busting up of the terrorist ring in England, (Cheers, mates) the news channels rushed into high gear to brand the story.

CNN called it "Terror in the Sky" while Fox News went with the shortened "SkyTerror."

Same packages. Thick scary fonts in blacks and reds.

The graphics, sound effects and hurry-up offensives of the news channels are really making me ill. CNN even pulled their starchild Grandstanderson Pooper out of his embedded role with Israeli Defense Forces to go stand on the tarmac at Heathrow. Action packed.

I think I'll go back to Jon Stewart for my news.
