the predecessor to the jon stewarts and the stephen colberts of the world…the one who is the missing link between the fake news of snl and the fake news phenomenon of today(see dl hughley with his show on cnn…cnn!)is craig kilborn. the former sportscenter anchor turned faux headlines anchor turned(now)actor and behind the scenes producer used to have a daily moment of zen on his show. the kids would call it a wtf??? its a crazy, unbelievable, can’t make this up scene that leaves you speechless…and in wonder. i won’t(can’t)do this daily but will post whenever i see something….wow?

as i read this story below….i thought….isn’t this the ending to love, actually? once again, if you can’t tell the difference between fantasy and reality, please suspend your netflix.

Newark Airport Security Breach Suspect Stays Quiet

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — A Rutgers University graduate student faces arraignment on a charge stemming from a security breach at Newark Liberty International Airport last weekend.

Haisong Jiang of Piscataway has not commented publicly since he was taken into custody at 7:30 p.m. Friday at his home in Piscataway. A person briefly came to the door of the residence on Saturday morning, but stayed inside and did not speak with numerous reporters waiting outside.

Authorities say the 28-year-old Jiang breached security Jan. 3 to bid his girlfriend goodbye, triggering the shutdown of a busy terminal that led to snarled flights worldwide.

He faces a defiant trespassing charge and a fine of up to $500. However, it was still not clear Saturday whether he had retained a lawyer and when he would make a court appearance.

Haisong Jiang just wanted a hug from girlfriend when he breached security at Newark Liberty Airport

He did it for love.

The Chinese graduate student who snuck through a Newark Airport checkpoint to steal a kiss from his girlfriend – sparking a massive security scare – was described Saturday as a hopeless romantic.

Pals were shocked to discover Haisong Jiang, 28, was responsible for shutting down Terminal C for seven hours, causing more than 100 flight delays and stranding thousands of passengers last Sunday.

Outside his home in Piscataway, N.J., they insisted the quiet scholar could not have meant any harm and is just a guy with a big heart smitten with the love of his life.

“This man is very romantic. He’s a very good man,” said Andy Rui, 28, one of Jiang’s best friends.

“He just wanted to say goodbye to his girlfriend, I don’t think he realized what he [was] doing,” said another pal, Ning Huang, 33, who plays soccer with Jiang.

Jiang, a bio-medical research student at Rutgers University, was arrested Friday after cops identified him as the man who illegally passed through a security checkpoint into a secure area so he could prolong his farewell to his girlfriend.

TSA guard Ruben Hernandez had temporarily left his post unguarded, highlighting porous security at the airport despite recent terror alerts.

Jiang, who came to the U.S. in 2004 from Jiangxi province in China, is charged with defiant trespass, which carries up to 30 days in jail.

He was released from custody and will be arraigned this week. He did not return home after his highly publicized arrest.

Friends said he and his girlfriend have been carrying on a bicoastal relationship for a year. She was returning to Los Angeles after spending Christmas with him.

“He was totally excited, even before his girlfriend visited,” said one of his roommates, who only gave his first name, Hui.

“He was very excited to find a real good woman.”

Grace Chen, who went to college with Jiang in Shanghai, pronounced him “in love.”

“It’s wrong for him to cross that line but I just think he didn’t think too much before he did that,” Chen said. “They have a long-distance relationship and she’s going back to California so it was probably just his first response.”
