Bad Realtor + Local News = Serious Strange

Everyone knows that local "news" broadcasts everywhere have largely devolved into a glib, alarmist pastiche of tragedy, celebrity schlock, feel-good treacle and the bizarre (plus sports and weather). In spite of our occasional appetite for a freak show, we generally can't be bothered. But this report from the local CBS affiliate about a rogue Prudential realtor breaking into a house (not for sale) to show it to a client was impossible to resist. Of course the single most compelling aspect of the story- why?- goes un-addressed. But this is local TV news, what did you expect? []
