Reason #4,206 that the mainstream media is dead

Through Twitter, a retweet alerted me to a real-time broadcast on uStream. The uStream service allows anyone to broadcast live video using their mobile device. Here's a screen-cap of what I was watching for a few minutes.

This is the view from Robert Luketic's iPhone. Luketic was on the set of Five Killers, a movie starring Ashton Kutcher. You know, Demi Moore's hubbie.

In this scene, filmed in a grocery store, Kutcher storms down one of the aisles with an angry expression. Which is the same as his surprised expression. And his happy expression.

In a nutshell, anyone can be a johnny-on-the-spot pro journalist and broadcaster. I feel a tingle going up my leg anticipating the end of several pathetic broadcasting careers.
