Ted Koppel today defended his decision to read out the names of the US soldiers killed in Iraq to serve as a reminder to the American people that there is a war going on.
An insider in the Koppel camp told a reporter from The Spoof that in Mr Koppels opinion that the only person that needs to be reminded that there are young men and women being killed in an unjustified war was really George W Bush and his hoard of money grabbing incubus underlings.
When The Spoof asked the White House for the official view of Mr Koppels dramatic move a spokesperson said "He's doing what? oh my god, oh my god, oh my god."
The spokesman proceeded to shove our reporter out of his way and took off down the corridor towards the oval office yelling: "Mr President! we're really in the shit now! it's turning into Vietnam, Colin! Condi! Dick! quick we gotta neutralize this threat!"
