T.V. or not T.V.? A banner question….

The plan in the works is that the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade that greets the start 2012 will have a group of “Occupy” folks that will be marching with banners and signs, sort of marooned at the tail end of the procession, and therein is the basis for this prediction of mine. Will there be problems between the marchers and the police? I don’t know and won’t guess, and that’s not the prediction anyway.

My prognostication? I believe that the “Occupy” marchers will never be seen for even a minute on any t.v. screen, even though there will be more cameras covering the parade than there are clear thinking republicans in America.

O.K, maybe that’s not saying very much…

You might be able to see videos showing the protesters marching in home made stuff that’s uploaded on youtube, but that’s only if the corporate owners of that site don’t throw a block job on any Rose Parade related word search.

Nope, my actual prediction is that those corporate owned cameras that are used by every one of the networks that will be giving a full color look at what happens and will be seen around the world will shut down as soon as the last official float goes past, even before the horse organic pollution clean up crew makes its rounds.

Horses you can walk behind with your eyes closed…

I suppose we will have to wait until next year to find out if this is correct…

    Any event preceded by the celebratory flyover of a massive instrument of death and destruction has already lost its soul.

    The “shall we have a flyover, yes or no” decision is easier to understand when you consider that someone somewhere did the money math about losing soul vs. gaining viewers, and then you need to figure in how little soul they had to lose in the first place. This is especially true when you know that increased viewership means the broadcaster can then charge higher rates to their advertisers. There are so many times when saying “follow the money” becomes the go to answer, this is just one more of those times.
