I was watching Fox News this morning:

They were talking with Dennis Ross about the Palestinian situation. Ross says, "So when Arafat went down in that plane crash in 1992, I said to Abu Ala, who was finance minister at the time, I said, 'If the chairman had not survived that plane crash, would you know where all the accounts are?' And he looks at me and says." And then they lost their satellite feed. The anchorwoman says something like, whoa, now I too am left hanging. But she was the person conducting the interview with Dennis Ross on the feed. Why couldn't she just tell us? Utter vacuousness. I turned off the TV and decided not to give it any more chances today. Well, maybe not all of TV. Maybe just Fox News.
