Is anybody else sick of how they report news? It really struck me the other day with the Times Square bombing story. The initial story took a minute, maybe two to report: man reports car, cops check it out, clear Times Sq., car contains bomb which, thank God, doesn't go off.
That would have been the perfect point to say, "Stay tuned and we'll bring you further details as they come in" but nooooo. They have to bring in all their talking-head "experts" to speculate on no facts until:
The mayor, governor, chief of police and other poobahs step up to the mics to make their statements based on no more facts than we already have.
Next day, a few more facts, like why the bomb didn't work, endless speculation by more experts. Et cetera, ad nauseum.
I didn't think of this but Jon Stewart pointed out, do we really want to tell bombers just how they can do better next time?
How can we convince networks it's okay to say, "That's all we know"? I get sick of them chewing over the same thing over and over.
