At 6, 6:30, and 7 the national CBS radio news breathlessly talked about the ongoing tragic fires in southeast Australia.
Their announcer talked about the inferno near Melbourne and throughout the province of Victoria.
Finally, I couldn’t take it any more and called the KCBS news tip line. Australia has states and territories. No provinces. It’s the State of Victoria. The KCBS woman on the phone seemed stunned — of course, she said. She’d let national know.
The 7:30 national news talked about the fires in the State of Victoria.
I know news budgets are cut. But, I hope CBS will spring for an atlas for their newsroom. Or, maybe even an Internet connection.
