Should I mention North Korea?
Have you ever wondered how TV media has planned for their last broadcast? We are so close to the brink, closer than we have been in years. It's not a pleasant thought.
Wonder no further. I had blogged on this topic back in 2015, back when the "end of the world" video (can't they at least improve its quality?) of CNN was leaked.
It isn't just CNN that has prepared a "treat" for its end of the world listeners. The BBC has an "end of the world" broadcast script (see end of the above video).
And John Oliver, the wonderful British comedian I love so much, has his own End of the World video, narrated by Martin Sheen.
No, it's not a funny subject, and no one (well, most people, I hope) wants to see doomsday come any time soon. But, faced with life today, I think what we need is a good laugh. So, perhaps CNN should rethink that grainy U.S. Army band playing Nearer My God to Thee video.
An end of the world cat video would be so much better.
And never needing that video would be the best thing of all.
