I’ve suddenly become mesmerized by Talking Points Memo’s The Day in 100 Seconds. Each day, they try to sum up the news of the day by editing TV clips down to 100 seconds. If you forget the content and simply watch the video, I find it entertaining, captivating and simply terrific.
My favorite one so far is January 29, 2009. I like the off hand news commentator’s comments, “Poppycock,” “Shut your pie hole.” But my favorite part without a doubt is Blagojevich’s impeachment testimony. I find it completely enthralling when they take a single speech and cut out the empty parts of it.
Do yourself a favor and watch January 29, 2009 in 100 Seconds. I’ve watched this day over and over again.
