  1. Mr. Concha so right! Entire first 10 minutes of CBS THIS MORNING all Cosby. If that weren’t bad enough, next 3 minutes on affluenza boy and carrot-top-mom. Then finally something about historic flooding of Mississippi River for a minute or so..

  2. Re: Concha: Media coverage of Cosby saga is already excessively annoying.

    Bill Cosby was arraigned Wednesday. It’s only Thursday.

    I consider the following legitimate stories to cover:
    • Interviews of other alleged victims.
    • CBS interviewing his defense attorney this morning.
    • Outcome from his day in court.
    • Questions about his declining health or lack thereof.
    • Bail amount of $1M.
    • Discussions of the charges against him.

    I don’t consider it overkill by the media just yet — especially given the limited number of competing significant news stories that usually surrounds the XMAS-NYE time frame.

    Cosby’s next court appearance is not until January 14th. If this story dominates the news next week, I will likely join the chorus of those objecting to overkill.

    As far as making any news story – whether it’s Cosby, MH370 or Benghazi — part of every hour on a given cable news channel has frankly never bothered me all that much. Most people don’t watch all day unless they’re in the hospital or in jail. 🙂

    My take is, let’s see how it goes next week.
