  1. When I first saw this clip, I thought how terrible it was that they were all following the same script, and I wanted to see who wrote it. It turns out that it comes from a news feed, that these stations subscribe to, and with limited time and resources, they take the copy as is.

    These aren’t meant to be viewed side-by-side. If local news stations had Conan’s budget, they could afford a team of writers, and then this would only happen with more important issues, like beating the drums for war, or austerity. When that happens, then there will be a story, but Conan won’t air that one.
