NewsBusters Shocked That Local News More Important Than National News
Topic: NewsBusters

An Aug. 13 NewsBusters post by Kyle Drennen makes a big deal of how "instead of showing the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, the network's Washington DC affiliate, WUSA-TV, decided to continue with live storm coverage." Drennen presents this as being suspect because "The Evening News has consistently ranked third among the network evening newscasts during Couric's tenure."

Why Drennen thinks it's surprising that a local TV station would want to devote more coverage to a devastating storm that cut power to 110,000 people at a time when people are already predisposed to watch news is strange. It's almost as if he's being paid to push an agenda to bash Couric and CBS, no matter how logic-defying the attack.
