5th Anniversary – Puppet Theater
Puppet Theater: It began back in the dark dark days of 2005. With a trial that seemed destined to tear the nation apart, and no cameras to record it for posterity. Being a television show (and thus obligated to the “vision” part of that word) we here at Countdown despaired of ever providing the kind of coverage such a monumentally important event surely deserved. Or the kind of annoyed satire that it surely demanded. But then, a light in the darkness. An idea so journalistically innovative, so perfect, so pure — it has since become a staple of this show. And inspired lesser programs to imitation. We salute it, as we continue to celebrate Anniversary Week.
