Death by a thousand cuts?
reasongonemad: AP has **7** reporters on Balloon Boy coverage. We're digging good journalism's grave with this nonsense, friends.

Start spreading the news....

Anyway, Colorado officials will be holding another press conference tomorrow on the issue at 11am (Mountain Time). As long as the football games won't be interrupted, we're fine with that.
In the meantime, we could embed a video from today's press conference, but we'd rather go with this music video from the 80s.
Hey, we'll never file charges against you. But if we change our minds, we'll let you know on Twitter. So follow us!
