Roll Over Harry Von Zell — Make Way For Wanda & Biff Of "Action McNews"

At the end of June 2015, the SCOTUS will hand down its decision in King v. Burwell — the most recent Dumbo attempt to overturn the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). In the meantime, the talking heads babble. Tom Tomorrow's favorite talking heads are Wanda and Biff of "Action McNews" — the alt-newscast that most resembles Faux News. Today's colloquy between the bloviators is unique because it doesn't end with a cut to a commercial break: "Now, these messages!" Biff and Wanda were so wound up that they talked over the transition to "messages." If this is (fair & balanced) news ungathering, so be it.
