What does Balloon Boy have to do with the Boston area?

Beats me, but Emily Rooney will be discussing the case tonight on "Greater Boston," which describes itself as tackling "the region's top news stories with original reporting and comprehensive analysis."

So I look forward to her "in-depth discussions with guests from diverse perspectives" (in this case, two lawyers she dug up) that will take us "beyond the day's headlines," such as, oh, letting her explain her fantasy about punching Balloon Boy's mom in the face and knocking all her teeth out, because right now, that's about the only original thing about this case that's gone untackled.

Can we start a petition to replace her with Jared Bowen?

Emily Rooney is all about the business of the 'news chase'. If it will put eyes on the screen, it goes in the news. It's exactly the same thinking that led the media to run wall to wall live coverage of the balloon floating across the landscape, and also the same that leads LA TV stations to show car chases from helicopter borne cameras.

Anything that gets her to dump her "usual suspects" of guest bloviators is a good thing. Give me the topic and I'll write a script for what each of them will say.
