“Hi I am Chet Checker.
“And I am Bridgette Bundy.”
Together they say, “And we bring you San Diego Today.”
Bridgette starts, "A recent announcement from start-up biotech firm HumanaGen discloses that they have received government funding in partnership with the Navy’s Strategic Research Division. With the announcement of this partnership, HumanaGen is readying it’s first marketable product, Synthentic blood named “Plasma Transcend” Here is Lenoard Carp, CEO of Humanagen
Camera pans to an obese man standing behind a podium his large stomach protruding around each side almost gripping the sides of the stand. “Plasma Transcend will save countless lives not only on the battlefield but across the globe. This synthetic blood substitute can be immediately supplied to a wounded soldier or individual, regardless of blood type. It not only replaces the lost blood but acts as a healing agent stimulating the bodies healing responses to deal with infection and mass trauma. Here is a video of our last laboratory trials.” Before the camera pans away, Fat Leonard’s lip quivers with excitement as he looks upon a helpless white rabbit.
A white rabbit lays upon a white towel and is strapped down to a small table. An Indian man with a large pompadour hair style smiles at the camera before grabbing a small scalpel and removing the rabbit’s leg. Blood streams from the rabbit spilling onto the white towel and splashing the white fur of the rabbit. Next the Indian man pulls forth a syringe containing pinkish gel like material and injects the material into the rabbits neck. Almost immediately the blood slows from the leg and after a few minutes with the time sped up on film, the bleeding stops altogether.As the camera pans away to show the Indian doctor smiling again underneath his large pompadour a loud screech can be heard off camera and a grimace of pain comes over the man’s face as he reflexively pulls his hand away from the table. The film abruptly cuts off.
The newscast brings back the two news anchors Bridgette and Chet. Chet’s face is white as a ghost as he says “Bridge, you have to warn me before you show blood on camera.”
""You Betcha Chet," she says and then continues with, “We reached out to Captain Daxon Stone of SRD for comment but received no response.”
