Selling Illiteracy...

I've just heard the most ridiculous advertisement, ever.

A local cable television station, NY1, presents a segment on their morning newcasts called "In the Paper", where the well-coiffed hosts actually read interesting or important articles from all three New York that you don't have to.

The ultimate in laziness: having someone, on TV, read your paper for you. Not only do the earnest folks at NY1 offer this dubious service with a straight face, their more than happy to tell you that it's an"exclusive service of TimeWarner Cable..."
