The Face of TV News?

Television analyst Andrew Tyndall, who tracks evening newscasts, reports that NBC correspondent Andrea Mitchell logged the most "face time" of any broadcast journalist over the past decade.

For those of you keeping score, Mitchell logged 2,416 minutes on the NBC Nightly News during the past decade. Before the nation's economy collapsed, one could argue that Mitchell's husband, former Federal Reserve Board chief Alan Greenspan, appeared on tv more than Ronald McDonald, and at least Mitchell sports a better "mug" than her spouse.

  1. Personally, I found Alan to be a far more comforting quotidian presence :)

  2. Quotidian? As applied to Mr. Greenspan, I'm sure you mean the malarial fever, if the state of your assets is anything like mine.

  3. I believe she's referring to the movie, STAR TREK: THE QUOTIDIAN PRESENCE, in which Alien Greenspan releases irrational exuberance aboard the starship Enterprise.
