Anybody watch Friday's edition of ABC's World News?
It was 100% about the Fort Hood shooting. Nothing else was covered.
On a day when unemployment hit hew highs and other events had taken place in Congress and throughout the nation.
A comprehensive news program should have covered several stories, not just one. If there is a lot to say about the Fort Hood shooting, that should be part of a special later that night (say in the 20/20 or Nightline slot).
Note that we have another example of the Obama administration not letting a crisis (the Fort Hood massacre) go to waste. They got a health care bill passed (virtually outlawing abortion no less!) that they would ordinarily not be able to because the news media was distracted by a military mass murder.
I've never seen anything like this administration -- where every legitimate national crisis serves as an excuse to ram through some piece of deeply unpopular legislation.
I suppose that the Senate will hold off on voting until there is some other national crisis or tragedy that they can serve as political cover for passing the bill.
