Modern TV Journalism
i'm going on record here: it is not a good use of time, fuel, and other resources to employ a helicopter and camera crew to film Brett Favre traveling via SUV from an airfield to a training facility, or track the car bringing Lindsey Lohan to a court appearance, etc. just so the talking heads on TV can have a moving image over which to discuss the "news".
Unless the cars they are in are being pursued by dragons, you're wasting celluloid on the phenomenon of modern transportation.
