Christmas was the lead on CBS as Gloria Borger (no link) filed her live stand-up about Sen Johnson's health later in the newscast. Anthony Mason interpreted November's retail sales statistics as an indicator for the entire holiday shopping season. The start was "stronger than expected" but its finish may be flat.
Both ABC and NBC closed its newscast with Yuletide features.
For possible gifts for one's female friends, NBC's Rehema Ellis observed that consumer electronics products are now designed and marketed with women in mind. SONY and Dell were the brands she emphasized so Philips Electronics did not get that free plug, despite its sponsorship of NBC's advertising-light newscast last Monday.
ABC's closer, by Nancy Weiner Cordes, was on the billions in year-end bonuses paid to Wall Street's investment bankers. CBS' Byron Pitts filed the same story paired with Mason's Xmas package. Pitts took a tour of the luxury penthouse apartment that can be picked up with a spare $20m. Cordes showed us a shiny red sports car at the Maserati dealership. Pitts went with the shiny red sports car at Ferrari.
