11.9.01

A few more anecdotes from the morning's news coverage:

An anchor on NBC (I forget who) said "this is the worst attack on American soil since the War of 1812. Or what we did to ourselves in the Civil War. ... Oh, and Pearl Harbor."

A reporter in the field for CNN at about a quarter to 12 said "...the attack which happened just four hours ago," at which point the cameraman's hand appeared on screen with three fingers up. "I mean, three hours ago."

An NBC field reporter spent five minutes conveying the fact that there was a bomb suspected to be in the school he was standing next to, and therefore he ought to leave right away.
