Stringing Viewers Along: "Moments From Now" is, in Truth, One Hour

Reported by Melanie - May 26, 2004 -

Opening the show, Vester says we're awaiting new terror threat information "to be announced moments from now" in a news conference being held by John Ashcroft and Robert Mueller.

(COMMENT: All outlets use this string-the-audience-along tactic to some extent but Fox is especially abusive of it. The "moments" are actually one hour. The press conference is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. ET. Dayside begins at 1:00 p.m. ET.)
