Hooey for Hollywood

I saw the Al Pacino thriller "88 Minutes" and, while I was willing to suspend disbelief with much of the script, there was one plot point that made me howl.

Trying to prevent Pacino's murder, assistant Amy Brennerman places an emergency phone call to him, saying, "You'd better turn on MSNBC."

Pacino grabs his television remote control. He punches the power button and up pops MSNBC!

Aw, c'mon! Foul! There is no way in the world his TV was pre-tuned to MSNBC. No way!

NOBODY has their TV on MSNBC!

The guys in the control room at MSNBC don't even watch MSNBC!

Get real.
