Interested, Interested...and then Suddenly Lost Interest
The lead for this story about Ashleigh Banfield piqued my interest:
NBC News president Neal Shapiro has taken correspondent Ashleigh Banfield to the woodshed for a speech in which she criticized the networks for portraying the Iraqi war as "glorious and wonderful."
I thought the image of her being disciplined in the woodshed was wonderful. I recall her hosting a show on MSNBC called something like, "Ashleigh Banfield: On Assignment" or "Ashleigh Banfield: On Location." I always thought a more interesting ratings grabber would have been: "Ashleigh Banfield: On All Fours." But, hey, that's just me.
