KTLA’s Eric Spillman, Jackass

UPDATE: Eric has apologized here.  That is a nice gesture and I think he means it.

Loving the video of intrepid KTLA newshound Eric Spillman getting called a jackass:

Maybe people will wake up and see that this type of thing isn’t reporting, it’s not analysis, it’s sensationalism and entertainment. Which I can already get on 99% of the other non-news programs on TV.

    You know what though. This was funny, and I think the fact that the people in line stood up to him made it even funnier. TV news with a real sense of humor would be so nice…

    Oh definitely it was funny. My beef is that he was trying to pass off his crap as reporting.

    I guess I miss the humor.
    Making fun of people in a childish way isn’t really all that funny.
    I know he was trying to be funny, but it’s neither the time nor the place, nor does it make one wish to watch TV “news.”
