Following yesterday's RHSN broadcast, students generally agreed that the thirty seconds of red screen was the most interesting part of the broadcast. An impromptu poll showed that roughly eighty percent of students found the red screen reading "Media Offline bspongebon" to be much more interesting and informative than anything else in this week's newscast, or, for that matter, most RHSN newscasts. "The red screen at least made me perk up and think 'What the hell is going on?' for a moment", one student told News from Rockettopia. "Then the anchors came back on and I dozed off again."
RHSN plans to capitalize on this new interest by making every newscast consist entirely of colored screens with meaningless text, which is expected to substantially boost their ratings.
