It was only a year and a half ago that 23 million people flocked to TV news coverage of the Royal Wedding. Every news division sent teams of people to London to cover the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
This morning, news broke via press release that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting a child. The Royals opted to send out a release because Middleton was admitted to the hospital for an extreme version of morning sickness, it caught most of the media off-guard.
And yet, the despite the over-the-top efforts that went into covering the wedding, the news was not covered very much on cable news today.
