CBS apologizes for interrupting CSI

Quote:
CBS NEWS interrupted the final minutes of Wednesday night's episode of CSI:* NEW YORK in order to air a special report about the death of Yasser Arafat.****CBS has apologized and says it will rebroadcast the episode, in its entirety FRIDAY at*9PM CENTRAL TIME.

"An overly aggressive CBS News producer jumped the gun with a report that should have been offered to local stations for their late news. We sincerely regret the error. The episode of CSI: NEW YORK will be rebroadcast Friday, Nov. 12."

perhaps we should send CSI to determine the cause of his mysterious disease and demise.

Yeah, I don't see anything to apologize about. Is CSI were even good, there might be something to talk about, but....

Considering that networks frequently skip presidential news conferences in favor of entertainment programming, the relevance of this newsbreak seems awfully insignificant in the US by comparison.

Considering Arafat's funeral was already being planned, news of his actual death wasn't all that shocking. It could easily have been held a couple more minutes until the break.

It's not so much that CSI is more important, it's just that breaking into regular programming with fairly mundane information (and face it, we all knew he was at death's door) dilutes the power of any future newsbreaks. So it's not a huge deal, but it was a stupid thing to do.

This country's media is in really sorry shape. Show biz is more important than Yasser Arafat's death? God help us.

Evaluate, from the perspective of commercial media, how Yasser Arafat's death is more important than CSI.

given the way bush runs them, you're talking about two entertainment options.

Not exactly sure how you figure that Bush controls the media, when 89% of it is liberal.
