MARVEL LAUNCH 24 HOUR NEWS CHANNEL

NEW YORK – Marvel have announced a new venture – a 24 hour news channel which will give EXCLUSIVE minute by minute updates and rolling coverage of everything happening in the Marvel Universe.

They began with comic books and then branched out into movie franchises such as Iron Man and The Avengers and TV shows such as Daredevil and Jessica Jones, but now Marvel are extending their reach even further with a 24 Hour news channel dedicated to reporting events in the Marvel Universe.

Former NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams will be heading the Marvel news team with his trademark imagination and cutting edge analysis.

Speaking EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec from the Avengers’ secret base in Canada, Williams had this to say:

This is going to be a dedicated news service providing viewers with all the up to date information that they need about the goings on in the Marvel Universe. There’ll be tech news with Tony Stark, dedicated Hulk warnings and Black Widow will do the weather. Foreign correspondent Thor will give you the intergalactic news, including the latest developments in Asgard and the refugee crisis following the near destruction of Xandar. Groot will have a dedicated part of the show where he gives his critical commentary on what is going on in the world of politics and Drax the Destroyer and Rocket are double teaming for the Sports Desk.

Potentially rival stations have reacted differently. NBC wished Mr. Williams the best in a cordial statement, but CNN bitterly criticized the development, saying ‘There is no room for fictional news in the schedule.’ In contrast Fox News welcomed the new channel, saying in a statement:

Fox News has always encouraged the use of fantasy to the utmost in our reporting of the news and we can only stand back and admire the new initiative of Marvel 24 Hour News Channel. They are genuinely running with this.

The Marvel News Channel will  begin broadcasting at the end of the week.

BRIAN WILLIAMS’ NARNIA REPORTS ALSO CALLED INTO QUESTION

NEW YORK – Following revelations that NBC’s Brian Williams Iraq story was mis-remembered, the veracity of other reports by the veteran reporter including his award winning Narnia coverage have been called into question.

Xampard Brunt media watcher and expert spoke to the Studio Exec about the scandal which is already being called Narnia-gate:

Brian Williams’ coverage of Narnia and specifically his war coverage that saw the defeat of the Ice Queen by Aslan and his assembled armies was both award-winning and compelling television in the finest tradition of Edward Murrow, but it is now becoming evident that not only was Brian Williams not involved in the centaur fire fight with Mr. Tumnus as his first hand account suggested, but that he might not even have been in Narnia during the war.

But surely Narnia is a fictional realm full of magical creatures and written by the Christian fabulist C.S. Lewis.

And your point is?

That it doesn’t really… well… exist.

That would explain many of the holes in Mr. Williams’ story and the reason ABC have been unable to get a reporter there. Fox News however has Oliver North stationed in Narnia permanently. It all begins to make sense.
