JonBenet Ramsey still the Big Story on FOX

Reported by Chrish - August 22, 2006 -

The Big Story today 8/22/06 was still largely about the JonBenet Ramsey murder case, with Gibson and guests, remote reporters, and analysts spending approximately 25 minutes of air-time (not including teasers) on various aspects of the charges brought against her alleged killer. It's an improvement over last week's 40-minute marathon but still digustingly disproportionate.

On the other hand, the war in Iraq got a total of 35 seconds, at the bottom of the hour with Jane Skinner rattling off some headlines. Add in the 19 seconds devoted to the war in Afghanistan, where 4 US troops lost their lives today, and the men and women serving our country still got less than one minute. No "biggie", I guess. Some of us think otherwise; kudoes to John de Rosier for this editorial cartoon.
