The Tyndall Report is not amused by reporters using clips of fictional movie or television characters to illustrate real life trends. But at least, when Kelly Wallace showed us a Sex and the City clip back in January to illustrate the growing number of bachelorettes in the population, the image fit the story. Wallace's latest example is simply unacceptable. In order to illustrate CBS' closing feature on insomnia--the incidence of sleeplessness among women increases during menopause--Wallace's twentysomething fictional clip was utterly irrelevant. Sex and the City again!
UPDATE: Brian Montopoli (text link) at CBS' Public Eye shares our beef with that Sex and the City fixation.
