When Peacocks Attack
You can't get anything past that Mark Potter. To report on the booming black market for pain meds, the NBC correspondent charged fearlessly into the belly of the beast: Broward County. At the 1:25 mark in this video, the NBC reporter accuses a local bench and one familiar-looking newspaper.
I hate to play the "media conspiracy" card, but what the hell does NBC have against Florida? First, Fort Lauderdale is the punch line for a joke about how it's totally not Thailand . Then just a week later, another prime-time character maligns us, saying Florida is "basically a criminal population." And now they've sent a bald serious guy to make that same allegation, in a gravely serious way. Come on, Peacock. The network that airs Knight Rider has no business passing judgment on us.
