Want to wonder why no one watches CNN anymore? Look no further than today's coverage of Benazir Bhutto's assassination. We've got two options for streaming web video here at work: CNN and Fox News. So far, I've tuned in four times to see the latest news.

On Fox News, it's wall-to-wall Bhutto.

On CNN, it was the weather twice, then a story on Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, and, just a minute ago, a story on the travails of frequent business travelers.

Are you kidding me? This is the sort of shit that could instigate a nuclear crisis. This could be the equivalent of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand.

CNN, grow up.
