ABC used its extended newshole that it will enjoy every Monday in January to launch a series The Real 24 profiling the workload of around-the-clock institutions. Bill Weir kicked off the series with the emergency room at Parkland Hospital in Dallas…from the Pentagon both ABC's Jonathan Karl (embargoed link) and CBS' Bob Orr covered a confrontation between five small Iranian speedboats and three USNavy warships in the Straits of Hormuz at the entrance to the Persian Gulf.
