Which you royally deserve <snicker>!  Are you saying that if a 
newscast is "sophisticated" then it is over the head of the average 

Gimme a break!  Yes, there is a place for a serious news station 
(such as WBUR)  and a place for a headlines, weather, and traffic 
station (such as WBZ).  But to say that the serious news station is 
above the level of the average person is really insulting.
