Some crazy made up headlines for the movies -
Dateline Detroit March 1, 2013 - The governor of Michigan has declared that the City of Detroit is in a Financial Emergency and will be turned over to the Omni Consumer Products corporation (OCP) for an undefined period. Elected officials have been unable to manage the city with the lack luster economy and severe restrictions on tax revenue demanded by the job creators. The elected government will remain but have no power of any kind. The manager appointed by the governor and answering only to OCP will oversee the city while it's being liquidated and he assured residents that the process will be orderly.
Dateline Washington July 4, 2013 - Early this morning a Pan American Airways 747 that was carrying 490 passengers on a cross country flight attempted an emergency landing at Reagan International Airport and collided with a Gulfstream corporate jet taxiing for takeoff. The tower controlling the field was unmanned in the early hours due to sequester cutbacks. All souls on board both planes are believed to have perished in the fiery crash. Eyewitness accounts suggest that the larger plane came rest with a large section of the cabin still intact but was engulfed in flames as passengers attempted to evacuate. This is unconfirmed as there were no emergency crews onsite. The NTSB stated in an automated press release that it will send investigators to the scene as they become available.
Dateline Capitol Hill September 25, 2013 - House Speaker Eric Cantor has said there will be no hearings into FBI whistle blower accounts that the terrorists who destroyed the Freedom Tower in lower Manhattan two weeks ago today could have been apprehended prior to the attack if enough agents had been available to followup on available intelligence. The Speaker also said that documents pertaining to the impeachment of the President will be made public later today.
