Please Sir, May I Have Another?

What was that in the sky this morning? Was it fog? Some sort of strange cloud? A trick of the eye, perhaps? No, no, and nope. It was the steam pouring from the ears of general managers and news directors who picked up the TU and read Mark McGuire's column about Capital News 9. His piece details what became obvious on Sunday in the hours following the Ethan Allen capsizing: that from a breaking news standpoint, CN9 didn't just own that story, they bent the other stations over their knee and administered a painful and humiliating spanking.

Whether they make any money or not is a story for another day.
