Reporter condemns husband for a romantic gesture. An Iowa couple found themselves on shaky ground this morning when a reporter’s husband made what he felt was a romantic gesture. While home from work for the weekend, he set up a projector to display the morning news on an unecessarily oversized film screen for him and his wife to watch while enjoying a cup of coffee together.

The reporter, who lives and breathes a 24/7 news cycle, had this to say:

“I mean, clearly he’s oblivious. Just the idea that I’d want to watch the news is so far off base. It’s been a nightmare for the past nine months and to make matters worse, as if they could get worse, it’s an election year.”

Confused by the reporter’s meltdown, the husband remains insistent that it was merely a gesture. The reporter is refusing to come out of their shared bathroom.
