I contend:

(a) a nightly news broadcast is roughly thirty minutes. Of those thirty, 22 minutes contain news, 8 minutes contain commercials.

(b) any media outlet that would spend five minutes -- nearly a quarter of it's timeslot -- on coverage of the Michael Jackson trial during a time of war should be considered "tabloid."

(b) all three network outlets have done (b).

Quick, what's wrong with my logic?
