Huge round of applause for the cable news people who absolutely NAILED the Iran coverage over the weekend. I posted a link to this yesterday, but here’s the upshot of the weekend coverage via Robert Farley:
So, I’m trying to find out something about what’s going on in Iran, and on CNN I can watch a rerun of Larry King interviewing several gentlemen without shirtsleeves who apparently assemble choppers. On Fox Mike Huckabee is trying to explain why Jesus hates credit card relief. MSNBC is rerunning something about a prison in New Mexico. CNBC is evaluating whether college students should be able to afford Chanel tote bags.
Very serious. I hope they have another panel on Morning Joe about how unserious the blogs are. Seriously, Sullivan and the ladies (to name two) had more coverage that all four cable news networks combined.
Adding… Don’t miss Chez’s take down of the cable news networks.
