Poor Us!

Forced viewing on CNN in Atlanta, broadcast on every airport television: a CNN "poor Baltimore" story, featuring a foot-tall number "200" behind a blonde reporter ... "with almost a murder a day in Baltimore, the desperate mayor reaches out to a convicted felon for advice." (or some such.) Of course that felon would be the "disgraced Ed Norris, former commissioner turned actor and radio talk show host" (and after he put on a suit for that bitch!)
Cut to mom of a victim saying she just wants to get out of the city.
Also featured: B-roll of "The Wire," police cars, vials crushed underfoot, and a pouty, piteous lead-out suitable for a story on orphaned crack babies.
