More irresponsible reporting by the MSM.
What's interesting is that CBS showed the accident. Was reporting on it etc. They pretty much stopped the parade coverage to cover the accident, whole NBC didn't mention it at all....

This is nothing new. The Leftist media excels
at cranking out fiction and portraying it as "truth."
I say the FCC should crack down hard on this deliberate deception of the American public!

NBC's take on it: There are no balloons on the ground....

The thing that irritates me is the fact that money will be wasted to figure out what went wrong in the parade.
Seems kinda obvious. Wind go whoosh, ballon go bye bye and hit light fixture, light fixture fall down go boom.

To report on it would have violated the "Perky One"'s contract.
There is a clause in her contract that says that she will not participate in any story that requires her not to be perky. The only exception in that clause is when she is bashing Bush or conservatives. At which time she can switch from Perky mode to attack dog mode.
NBC= No Business Communicating

But, the story was essentially correct, even though the evidence may have been falsified. The balloon DID cross the finish line -- last year. NBC was merely showing it's (fewer and fewer) viewers what that looked like. To the increasingly irrelevent MSM, if the evidence onflicst with "the story", the story wins.

This is just bizarre. I saw it, too. Actually, I can't stand the perky one, so I turned on CBS. They had Dave Price, who used to be on FOX AM news in NYC. So I turn it on, they've got some sort of incident. I check NBC to see what they are doing, and it's like nothing's wrong. You would think they would WANT to cover the balloon wreck.

I'm so thankful than NBC saved us all from viewing the carnage and destruction. I just hope they stay with this new theme and continue broadcasting good news from our Hollywood and Democratic Idols.
This was an entertainment show, with a large audience of children. There was no need to interrupt the script of Santa's arrival with an incomplete 'news bulletin'.
