Second news story today I have seen that blurs the line between what is real, and what is "reality". Seems the little kid that was "missing" after he supposedly was whisked away in his daddy's hot air balloon, that the whole world and internet followed on CNN, Twitter, ABCBSNBCFOX.......etc, as choppers were scrambled, and the stories of how he stowed away in first, the balloon, then in a revised story by his brother, in a box attached to the balloon, all the while the kid was hiding in the family's attic.

Does anyone else doubt that these camera hog hams will be front and center on GMA, and the other morning shows tomorrow?
Maybe that smell wasn't Oprah after all......could have just as easily been Wolf Blitzer, or Larry King...........
