Politician Doesn't Make Heavily Reported Speech

A heavily tipped speech to be made by the Under-Secretary Of Administrative Affairs didn't happen today, despite heavy pre-speech reportage by news outlets.

'' We'd been tipped when the speech at the press conference was due to take place, what the content was to be, even the length of the statement we knew, all we were waiting for was for the speech to be made. Then at the last moment, he cancelled.'' That comment from Chuck Fleming, Channel 12 Action News.

Sources close to the Under-Secretary have told us that he got rather narked off at all the pre-speech coverage and thought their was no point in him actually delivering the statement since all the details had already been reported by all the morning news programmes and on all the rolling news channels.

The White House was asked whether this may lead to a trend in government public statements being cancelled in favour of pre-emptive reporting, they refused to comment until tomorrow morning. And until then you can catch constant speculation and recycling of that none story on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and any other rolling news channel you can shake a stick at.
