Main Stream Media Money's Worth

How many times can a newspaper, broadcaster, blog/forum, etc... print the same story? I see the same story at least twice, 3 or 4 times even per week. Often enough right on the front page! I'll post some examples soon enough... But really, the MSM can really bleed one out. I first heard about GOP Sen. Judd Gregg's withdrawal as Commerce Secretary nominee sometime last week. I've seen it multiple times as "headline" material in both the IBD and WSJ. No new information convey, either. It's just silliness. Almost like listening to an acceptance speech...pointlessness.
