Just a little observation, gentle reader. It wasn't so long ago that Greta Van Susteren was interviewing Senators, governors, Presidential candidates and other heavy hitters. What has she been up to this week? For several days it was in-depth coverage of the Christopher Dorner manhunt. Last night she was interviewing passengers from the Carnival cruise and their families.
I wonder if this has something to do with the fact that according to the last Nielsen numbers, the show is bleeding viewers, while The Last Word on MSNBC has been picking them up. Maybe they're trying to see if cops, blood and shipwrecks do better in the ratings game. Your humble servant will monitor this to see if it's a lasting trend.
