Nightly News's coverage of the situation in Libya has been woefully inadequate. How can they claim to be fully reporting the story when their coverage has not included a single story about Mary Thornberry? Did Lester Holt ever find his way to her apartment? Did she manage to get safely out of Tripoli? Did she bop Khaddafy on the head with her rolling pin? Is Brian Williams going to spend another three-and-a-half minutes interviewing her (like he did on Feb. 7)? After all, her story has captivated Americans (we know that's true because Lester said so). We haven't heard a thing about Mary in over two weeks. Please don't keep us in suspense, Nightly News producers. Inquiring minds want to know.
