Saddam: Conflicting Reports Fueled Cable News On Friday

Bill Goodykoontz summarizes a confusing day on cable:

“Late Friday afternoon, networks began reporting that the execution would take place by 8 p.m.; after a day of guessing, it was almost a relief to have some idea of at least a time frame. The anchors and reporters grew a little more relaxed and assured, a welcome change from the often-contradictory information reported earlier.

At one point, CNN was reporting as breaking news that Saddam had been turned over to the Iraqis, while Fox News was reporting as breaking news that he was still in U.S. custody. MSNBC, for its part, was at that moment reporting on Britney Spears’ New Year’s Eve plans.”
