Sometimes the media ARE the news

From the BBC's reporting on the McCarthy-Mills wedding today - the article was about the media watching the village and what few highlights there were from among those glimpses.

"One onlooker suggested that he was so loud because CNN did not use a satellite, just two tin cans and a very long piece of string.

It was very surreal to think that every time he barked at his camera, millions of people across the US were having their breakfast to pictures of him in this small sleepy Irish village.

But there was little else for the massed onlookers to watch.

By the time NBC's Dawna Friesen filed a morning report, she was surrounded by a crowd who applauded as she signed off. "
