During the past couple months, the media have been scrambling to cover all angles of the impending birth of Kate Middleton's "royal baby." Included in those angles: What clothes the pregnant Duchess wears, what the baby's gender will be, and just how Kate Middleton will give birth. Bob reports from London on the royal baby media frenzy.

From Diane Sawyer's come-hither leer that resembles adult offering candy to little children with clearly bad intent, to the weekend anchor's male version of same, to so-called "news" that is beneath our intelligence, ABC News is clearly in the gutter. And now Barbara Walters' stunt??? QED. What a disgrace!!

Thanks, Bob for letting me be a part of your broadcast. If you ever have need for another "get you can't get" let's do the Barbara thing again, shall we?
Cred is so highly overrated. You left out your best line. The one where I, (Bahbwah WaWa) ask you, "If you were a twee, what kind of a twee would you be?" and you wrote "Petrified..." Good line. I may borrow that one day, but know that I'll give you credit!
