News flash: TVs decide to follow common man (and woman)

Yeah, yeah, I know. It's cynical of me.

Still, I don't know whether to let out a whoop of joy or just shake my head when it's necessary to announce that TV news operations are "turning to Main Street" and really trying to connect with the hoi polloi.

Reuters tells us breathlessly that the networks are going on the road, camping at people's kitchen tables, etc., while Broadcsasting & Cable touts how local stations are, golly gee, just out there trying to help out and spread a little good news with the bad.

What next? Slogans like "We're there for you"? Perish the thought.
