Gadhafi’s government appears to have fallen. CSPAN all too briefly aired some Al Jazeera footage of Benghazi and Tripoli, FOX News is airing Reuters video, CNN has a live computer feed from a correspondent at the reporters’ hotel. But if you’re watching MSNBC, as far as you’re concerned, this isn’t happening — they’re airing some stupid “Caught on Tape” show.
Long ago I gave up on calling these channels “news” networks, but you’d expect them to air compelling live video feeds when they are available. At least most of them are doing so.
