Dropping the Ball on Bush

Obviously the death of President Bush is a big story.

It should be a bigger story in his home state of Texas, but many Austin stations did not seem prepared for the news.

KVUE did not break in to programing on their own and took an ABC News special Reporter.

KXAN did the same with NBC, which spent more time on the news than ABC.

KTBC Fox was in their newscast but didn’t stay with the big story. They basically gave the Bush story a mention and then moved on.

It seemed as if no station had a obit package ready to go. No comments from the Governor or the Texas Senators.

This was a big story for Texas and the Austin stations seemed to have completely dropped the ball on it.
