S&P down almost 100 points. Newscaster "The time is 9:58am and here’s how the markets are moving" picks up loaded pistol and casually puts the barrel in his mouth while continuing to try and speak "the dow mh hams dmm hmm mph" a loud crack as an eruption of blood and brain matter paint the newsroom wall behind him. As his arms and body slouch blood pours from his mouth and nose. But the news doesn’t cut. The feed doesn’t stop. The camera stays fixed on the dead news anchor still in his chair while his limp lifeless body pours blood onto his stack of papers and desk. A graphic appears "Please stand by" accompanied by soft analog style muzak. Oddly, the graphic is layered on top of the image rather than cutting away. The dead anchor remains. For how long? How long will they allow us to watch this? Why won’t they cut? What is happening? Frantically, you switch channels, only to find nearly every major channel is displaying a similar image. A dead anchor, with soothing music, and a simple graphic.
