Reruns On Nightly News
On Sunday, Nightly News aired a story about the Army's 82nd Airborne Division Charlie Company 2508 engaging in a firefight with the Taliban near Kandahar (reported by Richard Engel). And then on Monday, Nightly News aired the story again with a few edits. Same narrative. Same footage. Is this some kind of joke? I know that June is rerun season, but I really don't expect to see reruns on Nightly News. With all that is going on across the country and around the world, it is appalling that Nightly News would waste the viewers' time by showing the exact same story on two consecutive nights.
