The math is depressing. In 30 minutes, here's what they found:
- 8 minutes goes to advertising. Okay, that makes sense. Ya gotta pay the bills.
- 7 1/2 minutes are devoted to stories outside the local area. Why? That's why God made CNN, or the Internet.
- Six minutes go to fluff -- sports, weather, teasers.
- About 8 minutes go to worthwhile news, but a lot of that is soft features, crime, cats in trouble, etc. Damn little policy or government coverage.
