A Brooklyn musician has made a handful of YouTube music videos that splice sound from television news anchors. "CBS Evening News" anchor Katie Couric, Wolf Blitzer and Rachel Maddow are all among the anchors whose interviews have been cut up into songs. The latest release from Michael Gregory's Auto Tune the News album features a minute of "Early Show" co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez hosting the "CBS Evening News" and talking about geese.
In "Auto-Tune the News #8," Rodriguez's words are made into melody through an electronic function called "Auto-Tune," which gives a voice perfect tune. The "Auto-Tune" sound made its first break into mainstream music with Cher's 1998 song "Believe."
Rodriguez called the video "hysterically funny" on "The Early Show" Friday.
