  1. What the heck is up with Dear Abby flying around in a helicopter, listening to hiphop, in a party dress and covering her ears in Times Square? What was the practical purpose of that waste of footage? Was it a parody? Does RT just have tons of cash to throw around for their “reporters” to hop around NYC in choppers? I don’t get it.
