The Wilmington News-Journal simultaneously praises Bob Costas for his self-restraint in not doing a Natalee Holloway show for CNN while criticizing Greta Van Susteren for being all over it…. (via TVNewser)
Meet Bob Costas, media dissenter.
Mr. Costas, best known for announcing sports games, did something unthinkable for a broadcaster these days. He acted on principle.
Miss Holloway’s disappearance is a terrible thing, especially for her family and friends. Unfortunately, this being a slow-news summer and cable TV networks being what they are, her disappearance was ripe for exploitation.
The main exploiter is Greta Van Susteren on Fox News. She has been floundering about for a topic since Laci Peterson’s murderous husband was convicted and put away.
