Time Magazine Editor Appeared On MSNBC In Flight
This may be a first. With WiFi becoming more prevalent on
airliners, it's not surprising that someone has used Skype in
flight, but using the lav as an impromptu TV studio ... that may be
another thing entirely.
That's what happened on the MSNBC show "Way Too Early" Thursday
morning. The blog NewsCast
Studio is among the media sources reporting that
Time Magazine Editor at Large Mark Halperin appeared on the show
via Skype from the lavatory of an airplane in flight. Halperin was
returning home on a red-eye flight after covering a speech by New
Jersey Governor Chris Christie in Washington, DC. He said he filed
the report from the lavatory out of respect for the "quiet flight"
And he could have a light on. TV likes lights.
At least he didn't disable the smoke detector.
