CBS News says, "Sorry."
That outfit, CBS News, has so much for which to answer, but at least they have apologized for interrupting Wednesday night's CSI New York with word of that terrorist mutant's death.
CBS will rebroadcast the Wednesday night episode of "CSI: NY" that was interrupted by a news report of Yasser Arafat's death.As I mentioned in this morning's PRE-FACE, my wife told me tthat the last five minutes of the show yesterday evening were crucial to the story, as they were explaining how and who and what. Dan Rather, the overenthusiastic one no doubt, broke in with word of the smelly one's demise. My wife almost cursed over the intercom.
Viewers in some parts of the country missed the last few minutes of the popular crime drama because of the Arafat report. The program will be shown again Friday at 10 p.m. ET.
CBS issued the following statement: "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."
Tonight (Thursday), perhaps French President Jacques Chirac might perish and Rather will be afraid to interrupt during CSI.
Like I said, the show pays Rather's salary and probably funds the entire news division.
CBS has become a joke. If it were not for quality shows like CSI, CSI-Miami, and Survivor, I wouldn't watch their crap at all.
