NEWSBREAKERS Presents: EGGMAN

NEWSBREAKERS partnered with the world's largest media company, Time Warner, to introduce a paradigm shifting news delivery mechanism, VNI or Visual News Interpretation.

"What's Visual News Interpretation?" you ask.

It is the synergistic marriage of common TV sense. If a picture's worth a thousand words and the reason a cliché is a cliché is because it's true, put those together and there you have it: VNI.

NEWSBREAKERS Presents: LIGHTS, CAMERA, MARSHALS

Nobody does the courthouse gangbang interview better than your local TV news crews. You've seen these Johnnys-on-the-spot spitting out their lines as the creeps and criminals du jour scurry around the halls of justice. But once and a while the news pack goes a little bonkers in its dogged quest for a scoop. We thought we'd try to curb the herd mentality with a NEWSBREAKERS-brand outreach. Think of it as sensitivity training without the spendy consultants' fees. Lights, Camera, Marshals follows your favorite freaks as they go head-to-head with a horde of newsies who've got some federal friends in high places.

Or, as our main man Norm Weathers likes to say, "That's how we do it where I come from in the ROC. If you ain't true, I suggest you don't come to the ROC without a crew."

NEWSBREAKERS in conjunction with WROC Presents: SUCKAS!

We didn't go to journalism school, so help us with the WROC logic on this story. It goes like this:

These NEWSBREAKERS guys are pranksters who took up valuable air time during which WROC could have brought you important news and information. So now, instead of bringing you, the viewer, important news and information, WROC is bringing you the story of pranksters who took up valuable air time during which WROC could have brought you...

"One of them could face prosecution." Really?

And they teased it the hour before, right after Montel! No offense, Monty.

STATION ACCUSES NEWSBREAKER OF ASSAULT; POLICE INVESTIGATION SAYS OTHERWISE

CBS affiliate WROC Channel 8 in Rochester, NY published a story on its website January 6, 2005 accusing a member of NEWSBREAKERS of assualt. A police investigation relied on video of the incident to exonerate NEWSBREAKERS. The video reveals that the WROC reporter instead pushed NEWSBREAKERS senior political correspondent Buck Owens.

Members of the group were detained for more than one hour and eventially released after producing the videotaped evidence. Police indicated that a harassment charge could be brought against Owens at a later date for "startling" the WROC reporter. A story in Rochester's Democrat and Chronicle recounted a similar version of the assualt claim made by WROC management.
