So the president told some jokes about sending people to die. Whatevs. To our minds, the biggest scandal to come out of Wednesday's RTCA dinner are the desperate tactics deployed by CNN to, well, sex up its after party. We hear that the ratings-desperate net flew up a passel of anchor-babes-in-training from Atlanta for the specific purpose of decorating their post-dinner disco inferno and finally beating out rival Fox for the best party prize.
Says our informant, who talked to one of the attractive accessories: "I felt bad for them. They didn't have tickets to the dinner and stood outside in the smoking lounge [until the party started]. They didn't seem to know why they were there."
Way to recreate the '70s, CNN -- at least in terms of prefeminist partying. Very classy!
