Good perspective on Favre coverage

I’m usually a hard-news scold — and will be again — but perhaps because it’s the dog days of late August, I agree with this observation from Pioneer Press Senior Online Editor Chris Clonts:

“Know what was cool about this morning, even though we were all chasing WCCO? We were all running around like crazy, except we were all smiling. That doesn’t happen when terrorism strikes again, a bridge collapses, etc.”

Enjoy your slow-speed chases everyone, then let’s get back to figuring this healthcare thing out.

You will get back to that, won’t you, folks?

    I was disgusted that all three network affiliates interrupted the national news broadcasts and cut to BF’s news conference.

    Absolutely disgusted.

    What rotten news judgment. This country is falling apart at the seams, with racial hatred on the rise, people bringing guns and threatening signs to town hall meetings and near Obama events, and people comparing Obama to Hitler.

    Way to ignore reality, “news” organizations!

    I’ll repeat the punchline of my comment elsewhere on Braublog: Brett Favre is the new Krispy Kreme. Remember how that earth-shaking story gripped the local media?
