INT. THE EVENING SUN NEWSROOM – NIGHT
A JOURNALIST sits at a desk covered in documents, photographs and cups of coffee that are half-empty (because we’re all so cynical). He quickly but carefully types the final additions to a breaking news drug-bust story. His fedora hat covers part of his face, but you can still see one eye as it darts from his computer screen to his notebook as he double checks the facts.
(Voice Over, yelling)
Where’s that copy? We should have set the page 10 minutes ago!
For the briefest of seconds, the journalist pauses to look at the clock on the wall. It’s 9:56 p.m., four minutes from deadline.
Without missing a beat, he continues typing, frantically attempting to get every piece of information into the story so the Hanover-area community can be as informed as possible.
CUT TO the editor, who is standing across the room, a cigar wiggling from his mouth.
Almost done?! Does the word “deadline” mean anything to you?
The journalist doesn’t look up from his computer.
Maybe I’ll just stop the presses so you can take your time finishing this story. The people of Hanover can wait. Or we’ll put another story above the fold! The headline will read: Lazy journalist misses deadline. Where are those photos?
