The Insider & Entertainment Tonight Clones

The pair are obviously clones of each other. covering the Anna Nicole Smith burial, the two programs have the same exact clips, exact same coverage, camera shots, down to the words used by different anchors.

opening the doors to AN's funeral... the only show inside the Bahamas Baptist church... and Virgie, almost a no-show...

flip over to the Insider and it's the same exact wording.

Notice the heavy promo of Howard K. Smith (freudian slip) by both... love of his life... heartfelt tribute from the man Anna Nicole left behind...

Howard K. Stern still has a lot of explainin to do, but obviously no questions of him are asked by The Insider & Entertainment Tonight.

No wonder Howard K. Stern let the Insider and Entertainment Tonight inside his "private" farewell to Anna Nicole Smith - so the world could see him cry, cry, cry... hear him bash Anna Nicole's mother... good thing the casket wasn't open...

OK same executive producer for both programs...

"Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider," both owned by CBS Paramount Television, have denied paying for interviews. But I'm told their method — it's semantics — is to "license" footage either directly from Stern or through a third party.

Recently, "ET" used Solana Productions of Southern California in such a deal. Neither Solana nor anyone from CBS Paramount answered calls yesterday.
