WHDH Blows Off NBC Golf For Hurricane Rita Coverage

  It appears that WHDH (Channel 7 Boston) has chosen to carry coverage of 
Hurricane Rita instead of picking up NBC's all day coverage of a golf 
tournament that started at 9 AM today. WHDH was showing CNN's coverage until 
approx. 11 AM, then after a brief update from a local WHDH anchor, switched 
to MSNBC coverage. I'm not a golf fan, and a major disaster such as this 
(2nd major hurricane in less than a month to hit the U.S.) is worthy of 
extensive coverage, but I'm sure there are a few golf fans that may have 
called WHDH's switchboard wondering  "where's the golf" ?
