Privacy, Social Media, Buckwheat & The 24 Hr. News Channel…

85071573

I was watching this video today…and had a thought.  It was one of my favorite episodes of “vintage” SNL from the 80′s and it’s called, “Buckwheat Buys The Farm“.  The clip is modeled after the news media coverage of when President Regan was shot back in 1981.  That was the first US Presidential assassination attempt [...]

Okay not really, but almost right???  Last week we lost Michael Jackson, which in itself isn’t weird, people die everyday but this was so sudden and unexplained.  I think everyone thought it was a hoax at first, especially since Farrah Fawcett had just passed that morning.
