Wake Up!

I used to be pretty much in love with Ashleigh Banfield, back during her MSNBC days a decade or so ago, but it’s hard to defend this. In a bit I had previously only ever heard of as a staple of morning-zoo radio shows, her CNN show does a segment in which they call up a celebrity at 5 in the morning, wake them up and interview them live on the air. Jon Stewart’s lampooning of this was glorious, especially the part where he pointed out that a predawn call to someone like Kerry Kennedy, who’s had more than her share of family tragedies, may not have been in the best taste.
