This morning, a local news show in Alabama dedicated over seven minutes of air time to Craig Rowin, who is currently asking millionaires to give him one million dollars. Seven minutes! Clearly, there wasn’t much hard news to report on.
The whole thing is amazing, a great back-and-forth between Rowin and two anchors who are clearly completely in love with him and his scheme. Rarely is the line between comedy and, well, reality, so blurred. I love it.
