Networks dropped the ball
Once again [this time on Sunday, March 21] I was appalled when I turned to the local stations in an attempt to see the evening newscasts. As usual, I found that the CBS Evening News had been pre-empted by sports and that NBC News was as well. ABC News, on the other hand, had the good sense to show an actual newscast.
On this momentous day in history [with the passage of the health care bill], one might think that someone at CBS or NBC would have had the good sense to preempt their beloved sports in favor of the news. But, once again, we see that they believe that people playing with a ball is more important than our nation's future!
Kudos to ABC News, which truly carried the ball.
