When the president signed the health care reform legislation earlier this week, the event prompted special reports on the broadcast networks and received full coverage on the cable news and business nets. It also appeared on a network where such political (and indoor) events don’t usually pop up: The Weather Channel.

There are some who spotted it this have criticized the decision, but it’s not completely uncommon for news items to appear interspersed within TWC programs.

“We did have a brief look in on the bill signing on Tuesday,” a Weather Channel spokesperson tells TVNewser. “Our morning block features news headlines and since the bill signing was a part of the headlines on Tuesday morning, we thought the live shot of the signing would be relevant.”
