Sports News Without Fear, Favor or Compromise

Savannah golf fans watching the final, tournament-winning putt of the Heritage Classic at Hilton Head on local CBS affiliate WTOC never saw Jim Furyk’s birdie in sudden death, nor his energetic celebration. That’s because a weatherman broke in at the very moment of tension to report that there were no tornado watches, advisories, or warnings for the Savannah region.

If it were the other way around, sure! Interrupt golf to tell me that a tornado is coming my way, please. But if all you have to tell viewers is that all the weather advisories were canceled, you can probably wait another 15 seconds.
