Our Car Thief, Who Art On The 405

By Chris Ariens 







FNC and MSNBC are in the closing moments of covering a car chase on Interstate 5 in San Diego County, CA. FNC began coverage around 2:45 ET; MSNBC a few minutes later (although MSNBC began the 3pmET hour with politics, before returning to the chase.)

CNN chose not to cover the chase, but instead stayed in regular programming which included coverage of Pope Benedict’s arrival in New York City.

The woman suspect, driving a stolen GMC SUV hit spike strips, pulled over, and was taken into custody at 3:15pmET.

> Update: those scrappy newsies from Headline News actually had the first pictures (at 2:34pmET) from the chase and stayed with it until the end. Which reminds us: of the CNN networks, HLN is the one that airs the pursuits, not CNN.
