The verdict in the Conrad Black trial finally came down this morning, and CNN was the only cabler (aside from CNBC) to cover it extensively, Rachel Sklar writes.

I love her description of what the other nets were covering: “Both MSNBC and Fox News spent most of the time in our random channel-surf covering the sad case of Zinna Linnick, the Tacoma girl snatched on July 4th and killed by an illegal immigrant sex offender (oy, Lou Dobbs is going to go berserk), with additional coverage of another missing woman, plus coverage of Terror! Terror! Terror! on Fox and two weather reports from MSNBC, one talking about the hurricanes that haven’t happened this hurricane season.”
