Dumb Question

Can someone explain why at this moment all 3 cable networks are carrying live coverage of D.A. Nifong’s (Duke rape case) testimony at an ethics hearing?

More to point–why can’t I see such coverage of just one of the many congressional oversight hearings on issues that affect millions of Americans?

  1. Rape! Lawyers! Ethics! Racism!
    What is there in this story for a cable news producer NOT to love?
    Habeas corpus? DOJ scandal? Iraq war? Old news. MEGO.
    Did I mention rape? Lawyers? Ethics? Racism?

    Nobody’s been able to explain to my satisfaction why the original story, ostensibly local news, dominated the airwaves and certain blogs for months on end.
