CBS assigned Sheila MacVicar to a second day of royal watching as she gave free publicity to the promotional interview by Prince William and Prince Harry in London for a gala entertainment in honor of their late mother.
So much for the King's English. The two princes were so nearly unintelligible that CBS felt compelled to subtitle their garbled speech, as uninteresting as it was. But worse than that, MacVicar chose to illustrate her account of Princess Diana's death almost ten years ago with clips from the newly-released movie The Queen.
Now, we know that the networks love to jazz up news stories with current clips from mass entertainment. But the clips from The Queen were used to portray an actual news event that actually happened. Is that not what CBS News' archives are there for?
