What's wrong with this picture?

EVERY major U.S. news organization plans to be there with its top talent, from CBS' Katie Couric, NBC News' Brian Williams, ABC's Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer to Fox News' Shepard Smith and CNN's Anderson Cooper and Piers Morgan. CNN alone will have at least 125 reporters on the ground. BBC will air a 51/2 -hour live, commercial-free broadcast. Heck, even the Weather Channel is showing up. My goodness. Is President Obama launching into the final frontier on the last space shuttle? Have Israel and Palestine declared peace? Are aliens landing in Central Park? No, stupid. Prince William and his bride-to-be Kate Middleton are getting married on April 29. Never mind that a recent poll said 65% of Americans said they had zero interest in the royal wedding. Nevertheless, the news networks are in the final stages of The Rapture. "The world is looking for unifying events, happy occasions where we can celebrate together," said Perry Simon, general manager of BBC Worldwide America. Ah ha. Right.
