I Want My Un-TV

Posted by andreaitis on February 16, 2009

This is the way to do it: a mad (goofy) scientist mixing it up in the lab.  Low budget, off-kilter attitude….not sure where it ends up, but at least Fox is giving them a chance to find out.

When there is a news event, like a speech or press conference, viewers see the backs of the heads of the guests watching it on a big screen, throwing out wisecracks about the goings-on. Mr. Straka compares the format with the cult comedy series “Mystery Science Theater 3000.”

“We are goofy over here,” said Mr. Straka, who is also the vice president in charge of video for Foxnews.com. “As long as we don’t make it look like TV, I’ll be happy.”

With “The Strategy Room,” Fox News Offers a Live News Webcast – NYTimes.com.
