Proof that Charlie Gibson is an ASS

Charles Gibson: Falwell Didn't Deserve Top Story Honors

Washington Post media reporter Howard Kurtz interviewed America's top anchorman for Thursday's paper, and the anchor of ABC's World News was determined: "Charlie Gibson was determined not to lead his newscast with the preacher's death." He explained:

"It lends importance to a figure whose legacy contained a lot of positives and a lot of negatives," says the ABC anchor, who was once a reporter in Falwell's home base of Lynchburg, Va. "It venerates the subject to an extent that I didn't think belonged there. He was a controversial figure."

What makes him an ass, exactly? That he's not Britt Hume?

Yet they probably didn't have a problem leading off a newscast with the hanging of Saddam Huseein, or the guy who shot up Virginia Tech. Didn't these stories "venerate" these "controversial figures" whose lives had "many negative aspects"?
