  An article in Saturday's Boston Herald about WBZ-TV's coverage of the 
grand opening of the CBS Scene Restaurant at Gilette Stadium in Foxboro. 
Seems WBZ-TV didn't spring to send any reporters to cover either political 
convention this year, but provided extensive coverage of the upcoming CBS 
Scene opening, including originating newscasts from inside the restaurant 
and Saturday night broadcasting a live opening night red carpet special 
hosted by news anchors Jack Williams and Lisa Hughes. Emily Rooney discussed 
this on last night's "Beat The Press" on WGBH-TV, saying that WBZ has 
"forfeited" their news judgement. Link to the Herald article:


   Note that the CBS Scene is a joint venture of CBS, owners of WBZ, and the 
Kraft Group.
