Pirate Drama: Day Two

In between Wells Fargo’s earnings report and the Italian earthquake aftermath, the cable news channels continue to update the pirate drama on the Indian Ocean involving the U.S.-flagged Maersk Alabama.

It was the lead on the broadcast morning shows (after the happy chat and story teases) and 62% of you who voted in our poll yesterday were right – that all three network evening newscasts would lead with the pirate drama. (We kept the poll open until 9:35pmET for west coast viewers). In fact, here’s how Katie Couric put the CBS Evening News lead story in perspective: “Good evening, everyone. Well, we have never led the broadcast with a story like this because what happened today hasn’t happened in any of our lifetimes.”
