And nonsense in the news.
I've focused heavily on CNN and Fox.
Both have their problems, and frankly I don't know which is worse at its job.
But rarely do they focus on the same story, especially as the lead story.
Apparently, this is what it takes for executives at the two networks to see "eye to eye."

It's refreshing to see an international focus in the news, especially on these two networks ... given that CNN focuses almost exclusively on trivial nonsense and since Fox is almost all about making President Obama looking silly.
But that it takes an international tragedy that killed thousands to get these networks on the same page is just sad.
