I think NBC was a respected network a decent source of news as well as entertainment.....at one time. So was Fox....at one time.
Now they're all basically Newstainment and Tavloid garbage, one show after another, ad naseum and around the clock. The television I use to watch as
background has become far more useful as a very LARGE alternate monitor mounted a couple feet over my direct line of sight and a few feet in front of
my desk, on a wall.
Actually, I find that screen to be far better suited to things like Breakingnews com or even something better and more informative like the ATS
Trending pages. It makes for great background, since networks like NBC wouldn't know decency and respect for the nation that made them everything
they are if it came up and slapped them upside the head.
They could have run 20 hours of 9.11 Coverage and I wouldn't care a bit. In fact, most I flipped past in my unusual break to check TV yesterday were
probably running too much and crossing right into Tabloid coverage for ratings. As bad or worse than what NBC did. There was only one period that
truly mattered...and a moment f silence and respect for over 3,000 people who did nothing to deserve the death they got that day isn't too much to
ask for American television networks.
I wouldn't say a word if the BBC or Sky News didn't show a thing...they aren't American born, bred and built from the ground up and from day 1 as a
network. Just a little respect...but that's too much for some networks to grasp these days...and their ratings, as they fall, prove just how many
others DO 'get it'.
