Are the Anchors Holding?


The headline of this cheeky National Post piece says U.S. TV war coverage is a mix of "incoherence with triteness." I've been getting news on the Web more than on TV, but what I caught during the "shock and awe" phase was pretty gripping. Also confusing; so much live feed, so little comprehension, even on the part of the newscasters.

Anyway, the author gets in a few good Dan Rather swipes, like this one: "I highly recommend CBS to anyone who wants to watch both a war and a man going slowly insane on national television."
