Set the Way-Back machine for just after September 11th, 2001.
Remember all that talk from the media -- and everyone else for that matter -- about how "everything had changed." "Things would never be the same." Our worship of all things trivial and fucking inane would be wiped clean by the blood of 3,000+.
Now watch NBC and Matt Lauer perform the journalistic equivalent of giving head in the bathroom of a bus-station by devoting an entire hour to a one-on-one interview with Britney Spears.
Best moment: Lauer asks her how she feels about some people calling her a "redneck" (because he can't say "white trash"), which is a hilarious question, given that she spends the entire hour loudly chewing gum.
Yep, the world is now a better place.
