It was disgusting that Nightly News devoted two minutes and fifteen seconds of Wednesday's broadcast to the story of a three-year-old girl who threw back a foul ball at a Phillies game. In what alternate universe does this qualify as news? Obviously, the Nightly News producers do not understand their responsibility to the viewers. Meanwhile, that night's broadcast did not contain a single story from anywhere outside the U.S. But at least we know all about the little girl who threw back a foul ball. Great job, guys. Keep up the good work.
