This Network Aired 'Rerun' Fireworks On The Fourth

Categories: 
When you turn your TV on to watch the 4th of July fireworks you expect them to be live, right? PBS decided the weather in Washington, D.C. was less than desirable, so they used footage from old fireworks shows. After the show was over they admitted it. PBS called it patriotic, while many other viewers thought it was the opposite. Initially I felt like I would want to see the best possible footage, but then wouldn't you just rerun the best show of all time every year? When the Superbowl sucks, I definitely don't want them to show a great matchup from a previous year.
