Covering The World

From Brian Williams's April 15 Daily Nightly blog (writing about the volcanic cloud covering Western Europe): "We'll cover it tonight, along with the rest of our world."

The rest of our world? Did I miss something? Aside from the story on the volcanic cloud, the only other foreign story Nightly News covered was the breaking news story about the oh-so-many candles being used by the Poles to mourn their late president. (That story contained this gem from Jim Maceda: "Poles love flickering candles." Wow--that's Peabody material.) The newscast did not contain a single story from South America, Africa or Asia. Is that what Brian considers covering the world? Well, at least we know all about the Poles and their flickering candles. Keep up the great work.
