[ed. I usually never watch network nightly news, but since I'm traveling that's all there is on the local channels. Tonight it was CBS, and I'd guess that about a third of the show was actually devoted to 'news' (I won't even mention what that news was about...ackk). The rest of the half-hour was given over to commercials for pharmaceutical products (with a couple of retirement investment services added for diversity). There must have been 15-20 commercials in half an hour (I didn't count). It was worse than an NFL game. I suppose you get used to this if you watch network news regularly, but the relentless drug pushing was quite an eye-opener.]
