Oddball - Naughty Cops Caught on Tape

Oddball segment from February 8, 2008, Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Cops caught on tape copping a feel from a young woman apparently in custody. Caught on their own station house camera. A twist on the basic dumb criminals story. Bad cops, bad cops, whatcha gonna do...?

I gotta say that I love the fact that the MSM is finally waking up to the fact that there's the internets and blogs out there and are allowing us lowly bloggers to embed content. It's funny sometimes how they do it, as if it's something new they discovered and are legitimizing it. And it's funny for example to hear Wolf Blitzer and Jack Cafferty discussing their blogs. Or Anderson Cooper talk about live blogging during commercials, shouldn't he be preparing for the next segment? I wonder when CNN will get a clue and allow their video to be embedded.

I like it for partially selfish reasons. Because it saves me time from having to rip their content and upload it to Youtube. But it's a win win. Instead of fighting the whole blogosphere to keep their content in one tiny place on the web, they get much more exposure and many more people viewing their video. Plus a link back to their site, with their high priced advertising to make their filthy lucre and everyone, including moi, and hopefully you out there, is happy.

Thank you MSNBC. Get a clue CNN. I don't know if ABC, CBS, or Faux News are doing it. But your intrepid blogger will surf to the ends of the internets, by googling their links from the couch, to find out.

CBS is a yes, ABC and Faux allow links and email, but no embed.

-Fight the powers.
