Seriously. In 2006, SBS here made a point of covering the Israeli invasion of Lebanon extensively.

And yet they never used more than a quarter or a third of an hour-long bulletin on it before going to other news. Even that to us seemed a bit over-the-top, and that was a fucking huge event. This was just some tart.

I remain amazed at how many different ways your news broadcasters found to repeat THE SAME DAMN THING in one evening.

DOL should remember this, but there was this hot blonde chick who went missing in Aruba a few years back, and that's all that they had on the news for about 6 months straight or more. It was horrifying.

Oh, I remember that story. I saw some Americans here bitching about the absolutely over-the-top news coverage, but ... I had no idea quite to what extreme they meant. I mean, I define over the top as taking at least ten minutes to get to other news!

Months, Axver. MONTHS.

And they never found the body. Nothing. Months wasted. And guess what, as of February, they've supposedly reopened the case!

If she'd been less hot, less blonde, less white it would've gotten far less coverage.

Remember when there was a foiled terrorist plot on JFK airport in NYC last summer? It got almost no news coverage because that was the week Paris Hilton went to jail.

But ... but ... how can you have so much to say for MONTHS? I mean, what more is there beyond "still no body found today, and in other news ..."?

At least some news anchors here still have dignity and one became famous for refusing to lead with a Paris Hilton story:

Basically, they retold her (rather short, as she was only 18 or 19 then) life story, had new interviews with her parents, friends, and relatives...etc.


Yes, the American news media is a joke.

I can only think of one time in my entire life that the news has completely honed in on one event exclusively here, and that was 11 September 2001. All five of the main channels took feeds from major overseas news networks for the first 24-36 hours or so. Channel 10 was the first to return to normal programming. 7, 9, and the ABC followed over the next couple of days. I think SBS stopped taking the BBC's feed after four or five days, though on the last day or two they might have just been showing it in chunks with normal programming interspersed throughout it.
