NBC stooped to new lows of idiocy and bewilderment Sunday night as they doused the lights on Bob Costas and the unsufferable bore Keith Olberman, in a moronic effort to draw attention to the imaginary menace of global warming. They actually did part of the broadcast by candle-light. I guess they wanted viewers to ignore the huge plasma screens over their shoulders. Like Michelle Malkin pointed out, at least with the lights out, we had to endure less of Keith Olberman's mug.
As if that weren't comical enough, they tossed to the morning show crew supposedly somewhere in the Arctic. Lauer and crew were there to bring attention to the imaginary plight of polar bears or some such nonsense. I guess they wanted viewers to ignore the deisel-powered lights which illuminated the Arctic night like a thousand suns, or the av-gas required to jet the irritatingly smug Matt, Ann Curry, and Al Roker, crew members, and equipment all the way up there just to lecture us little people about how we should be conserving energy. Apparently nobody told Matt that the polar bear population is increasing. Too bad one couldn't have wandered onto the shoot to enjoy a Matt Lauer-flavored appetizer before dining on the main course....Roker.
What everybody's pointing out today is that even in the sub-zero Arctic, you never saw Lauer's breath as he lectured us. They probably staged it in some Hollywood lot. I'm sure their stupid, pointless gesture made Al Gore proud....it showed everybody that returning to the 17th century is what's required to save the Earth....idiots!
