Marcia Wallace

My fellow SAG-AFTRA board member Marcia Wallace is all over the morning news programs, on radio, tv and online. "How she is being remembered depends on your generation or the generation the media is targeting. Many are remembering here career, including and focusing on "The Bob Newhart Show". while others mention only "The Simpson's."

I did enjoy our time on the board together, and have interacted with her in her dedicated position on the Women's committee.

She battled breast cancer, but her official cause of death has not been announced.

She was 70.

Why is the news always the same?

For a few years Conan O'Brien's late night talk show has been doing a segment called Media Reacts where they play a montage of news anchors reading copy -- the exact same copy -- on local news stations across the country. It's eerie. Bob talks with KWWL 7 News Director Dan Schillinger and finds out why the media reacts in unison on some stories. (Schillnger explains this Austin Powers inspired example in particular.)
