Did a Conan O’Brien Skit Expose the Mainstream News Media “You Don’t Need Us to Tell You Gas Prices are On the Rise” [VIDEO]

A skit aired on Conan O’Brien’s late night show revealed something either amusingly funny or potentially scary.

Watch the video first, then meet me back below and we’ll discuss it.

So obviously the gag is that each of these newsreaders used the exact same phrase, “You don’t need us to tell you that gas prices are on the rise.”

The videos are all legitimate local news outlets:
WTVM/Columbus, GA

KIDK/Idaho Falls

WDHN/Dothan, AL

WMBF/Myrtle Beach, SC

KTWO/Casper, WY

WCBI/Columbus, MS

to pick out a few from the video.  None of the station are owned by the same group.  Neither are the stations all a part of the same network.  So what gives?  Are these stations all getting the same pre-packaged news release or, as some conspiracy theorists think, is there something more sinister going on?

Clyde Lewis of Ground Zero, which airs on WIBX, points on on Facebook:

This is what you get when you watch the news on every channel– we call it parroting — and it is really truly what goes on — and you the general public doesn’t know that everyone is telling the same story.
