Note to Network News Departments...

OK, Enough already! We realize almost all of you are based in New York, but why are breaking into normal programming with special reports on that matters to say MAYBE 1% of your viewing audience?

OK, it may have been a big enough to be your top story when it first broke, but it doesn't rate anywhere close to the previously held standards for special reports, be they assassination-related, scientifically ground-breaking, or politically scandalous on a national level. If the Governor of Idaho, or even here in Illinois, had done something horribly, horribly wrong, would it rate breaking into normal programming?

Hell, the current Governor of IL appears to have been the major recipient of Tony Rezko's kickback campaign, receiving millions upon millions of dollars in return for favorable state contracts. Was this even mentioned nationally?
