What is News?

Since Kevin's computer count is at 0, and mine is now 2, I'll try to pick up his slack.

As I commenced my daily news website scouring this afternoon, I realized CNN has quite poor perspective on what is important to the nationwide audience.

Here's a quick game:

Which of the following was CNN's lead article about 5pm EST today?

A. Coretta Scott King dies

B. Alito confirmed to Supreme Court

C. Bush prepares for State of the Union

D. Ex-postal worker kills 5 in California

If you guessed D, you win. The one news item that really has nothing to do with 99% of us.

Thanks CNN.
