A bit of rhetorical overkill, I would say.  The layoffs are a reflection of
weak advertising revenues, not the errant electoral projections in Florida.
BTW, the NBC cutbacks also reflect sharply higher license fees for prime-time
dramas and comedies.  Today's Howie Carr column in the Herald speculated that
CNN Senior Analyst Jeff Greenfield's head is on the chopping block.  Look for
the cutbacks to spread throughout television and radio as the advertising
recession deepens.  Is local TV news next to be sacrificed?

Take care,
