Newsbreakers — Wolf Blitzer Vs. The Cheese Ninja?


The New York Times has an interesting profile of the Newsbreakers, the media activist prankers du jour. The Newsbreakers' modus operandi
is to ambush hapless news reporters who are reporting live on air with
bizarre characters like the “Cheese Ninja, who cavorts in the
background of live news broadcasts, derisively tossing slices of
processed cheese.” While this has generated a great deal of hostility
from the victimized journalists, the Newsbreakers have apparently won
“some fans in television newsrooms: the group says it has received tips
from station employees about where to find reporters in the field.”
