    it's part of cnn's new program to not employ journalists, but rather monkeys that limited typing skills.

      Whoa...careful here....CNN is based in Atlanta. The next "news flash" will be a three page cover story about all of the civil rights lawsuits because CNN employees were likened to monkeys.

    What an electrifying news story. Fully charged with facts. Shockingly this reporter hasn't won a Pulitzer.

    Let me guess....CNN budget cuts? Or were there not injuries serious or gory enough to glamorize? Maybe tomorrow the newspaper will give "Half the news that's fit to print"

    Sometimes local news is more useful, though it isn't very detailed: http://www.wftv.com/news/28885091/detail.html

    I have to comment on this simply because I have never seen a one sentence news article before. I can't pass this one up, may not happen again.
