Recently, ABCNews.com gave talent booker Merry Miller the chance at an on-camera career by assigning her an interview with Holly Hunter of Saving Grace. To make a long story short, Miller's interview made Albert Brooks' memorable sweatdown on Broadcast News (a Hunter film, of course) look like the epitome of poise.
Rather than duck from the embarrassment, which has generated countless clicks on YouTube and elsewhere, ABCNews.com has decided to exploit it. The website has not only published a story that chronicles every bit of Miller's embarrassment, it has set up an on-camera interview of Miller by another ABCNews.com personality.
And Miller brought a clip! Of her own personal nightmare! Roll it!
Someday, the media is going to eat itself alive and then talk meaningfully about the meal on 20/20.
