The most imprtant news with which Diane Sawyer started ABC evening News?

Why, the pregnancy of Kate Middleton, of course.

Never mind the continuing fights in Syria, the debates in D.C., any development in Israel, the continuing suffering after Sandy storm.

No, a long story - until I switched to CBS news in disgust - about the line to ascent to the crown, details about her "severe morning sickness" etc. I stopped watchong ABC news after Charlie Gibson left but the local ABC affiliate was the least nauseating and we did not bother to switch. Not immediately.

Bye bye Ms. Sawyer. You lost me years back with your antics with Elian Gonzales and GMA was always the fluffiest.

Except on Sept. 11, when Charlie Gibson was still there. As everyone was speculating on the first plane, the second came and Gibson just sat there, solemn and quietly said: Now we know.

1. I don't care for Sawyer either terrible replacement for Gibson

Brain Williams is pretty good for straight evening news.

6. I like Scott Pelley on CBS News

His is really hard news. But if politics is the main topic, it is Brian Williams since I like the NBC political commentators better.

2. I turned network news off in 2004

and threads like this only serve to remind me why.

The only mystery is why I had the habit of flipping on the news at the dinner hour for so long before getting disgusted and banishing them forever.

5. The thing is that there are at least 100,000 times...

as many people who care about a knocked up fake Dutchess as care about the budget negotiations, Syria, or anything else except maybe the weather or who will be the Jet's quarterback.
