Yesterday, I was out driving and turned to CBS radio for the national news at the top of the hour. The first story was about the economy. The second top national news story was that Tiger Woods had been penalized two strokes at the Masters golf tournament. The third most important story of the hour was that the Lakers' Kobe Bryant got injured and would likely be out of the remainder of the basketball season. And the fourth story was Secretary of State John Kerry reporting on a meeting he had with Chinese officials and getting a commitment for the two national to work together to keep North Korea from advancing it's threats of nuclear war.
All I could think when listening to the broadcast was what kind of screwed up priorities did the guy running the national news desk have yesterday at CBS?? I know that the weekend is generally an odd, off-time for national news, but that's no excuse. I mean, seriously -- putting Kobe Bryant behind a simple two-stroke penalty?! What was he thinking?
Oh, that John Kerry thing about nuclear war? The guy lost when he ran for president. Couldn't they at least have given the Cubs score first?
All that aside, I really have no idea what on earth they were doing.
