CSW Commentary: Latest News Media Overkill- The Lisa Irwin Disappearance
Leading off every local newscast since Tuesday is the disappearance of 10-month-old Lisa Irwin from her KC-MO Northland home.
Although the alleged abduction/kidnapping occurred more than 4 days ago and there have been no new developments in the Lisa Irwin case- one local tv station devoted nearly 6 minutes to the story on their Saturday night 10 o'clock newscast- completely overlooking fatality car and ATV crashes and other local news that occurred today.
Another one of the nice things about Internet news sites (like this one) is that you can completely ignore the story until a significant new development arises and you can actually read about the OTHER news that occurred.
